Christmas Cards {2003, 2004}

And we continue with the next couple of years….

Our Circle {2003}

Our family is a circle of Love and Strength. With every birth the circle grows. Every joy shared adds more love.

Every crisis faced together makes the Circle grow stronger. Within Our Circle we have an awesome little guy who is

The Fearless Leader—always more than willing to keep everyone “straight” and on task with the utmost of scrutiny. We also have a wonderful

girl who is always looking not at herself, but the others in the Circle to make sure they are OK and checking to see if they need anything.

And then we have a teeny powerhouse girl whom you cannot be around without being filled with joy and giggles…..the entertainer.

(Whom also needs an eye kept on her at all times!  DANGER!)

And then there are the two large people that are in Our Circle who constantly pool their best acting talents and abilities to make it look

as if they know what they are doing with the other 3 in the Circle!

From Our Circle to yours—-

May you have a blessed Christmas season full of merrymaking and fond memories!

Merry Christmas!

The Road Less Traveled {2004}

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence;

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference.

~ Robert Frost

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah, once again it……..

‘Twas the day of the Christmas picture to be;

How were we to know we had an illegal tree?

The park ranger parked alongside the road,

And around our little tree she slowly did strode.

Our Christmas picture is always full of adventures.

We promise to keep doing them even when we wear dentures.

We thought we had gotten our tree outside the park,

But in the ranger’s eyes there was quite a spark!

Once again God’s mercy and grace covered one of our stupid acts,

Even though we were just getting a tree and not passing out tracts.

The ranger gave us a smile and warned us of tics,

Then hopped into her truck and drove off into the sticks.

Now back to the reason we sent you this card—

About our favorite place—that shouldn’t be so hard.

The road less traveled is the road we choose.

If you’ve ever been on it you know you just can’t lose.

The most treasured of life’s experiences are there to be had;

Not too many choose it—and later in life are sad.

There is no rat race; in fact there are no rats to be found.

They’ve chosen the freeway instead,

Where they can run each other to the ground.

We like to smell flowers, climb trees, and fresh air—

And on the road less traveled God is ALWAYS there!

So our wish for you in the upcoming year

Is that you’ll take the road less traveled and be filled with cheer.

If you ever make the choice then your journey will start;

It will be quite an adventure that will nourish your heart!

Things we’ve learned on the road less traveled:

1. The road your on looks different when you turn around.

2. If you want to find a neat hideout you have to leave the trail.

3. Where you’re going is more important than where you stand.

4. Flowers and prickly bushes grow out of the same dirt

5. Storms shake out the dead branches

6. Shortcuts aren’t always.

7. Play, don’t watch.

8.  Every time you swim out to the rock it gets a little closer.

9.  Before you roll down the hill, you should check for rocks.

10.  If you don’t run, you won’t trip—but you may never get there.

11. Don’t jump out of a tree with cardboard wings.

12.  If something is in your way, climb over it.

13.  While you’re standing there deciding whether or not to get your net—the butterfly is flying away.

14.  You don’t find snakes—they find you.

15. When you’re lost, it’s better to stand still then to follow the wrong path.

Happy Saturday~
