Very Merry

This will be brief. We wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! We have been blessed by an embarrassing amount of riches this year, and are so thankful to all of you who have stood by us and lifted us when we were down. Cancer didn't give us a break this holiday, but it isn't breaking us (though it comes close at times).

We wish you peace in the holiday season. Whether it's a peaceful night's sleep from illness or a newborn, a break from a stressful job or job search, the ease of the heartache caused by your team missing the playoffs because they lost to the 2 worst teams in the league, an ease of financial worries... or the peace you find in taking a few days off, finding the perfect gift or just spending time with the ones you love... we hope this holiday season brings you an abundance of joy and peace of mind!

Here is how we spent our Christmas!

Hi Meg and Dan!
Loved the photos of Karl and Dan, those must-have moose mugs and the cookies! Who made and decorated those cookies--they looked scrumptious?! Sure hope you two enjoyed your Christmas day and are still enjoying the holidays between the inevitable lows that you deal with. I do have to say, Dan, that you look great in the photos--the ever photogenic guy with your great smile and bright eyes. Thanks for the update and the sweet glimpse of Karl in full regalia--loved it all. cousin Paula

Happy New year and best of wishes for 2009 to bring healthiness and peace... though I suspect there won't be much joy for Pirates fans unless those two cricketers from India pan out!

Love the Santa hat! And yes Brielle is loving the pop up ball tents and has been playing in them with all her Barbies and "pound puppies" and has showed all her new stuff to her neighbor friends.
Thanks for all the gifts Meg & Dan--the girls love everything!

Hey Dan & Meg,
Pics look great and happy new year to both of you. I hope that you had a restful and joyous holiday and we get to hang out soon. Love the Van Slyke jersey!
