Merry Christmas, 2008
We had a wonderful Christmas this year. It was somewhat bittersweet for me since I couldn't help but think that this may be our last holiday season in the United States for quite some time. Still, I was determined to enjoy it and to help Alex enjoy it, too. He really got into opening presents this year, which was fun for all of us to watch. My brother Matt was home from ACU for almost a month, and we enjoyed our time with him... and playing his X-box until it died (sorry, man). After Christmas was over, we made our traditional trip to the Henry Ford Museum to see the holiday model train display -- always a hit with Alex. On New Year's Eve, we watched "It's a Wonderful Life" (Matt had never seen it!) and then had some time to reflect and pray together as a family as we welcomed in the new year.
