Christmas is such an amazing time. Hope, life, excitement, beauty, stillness, prayer. . .What a beautiful time. I await 2009 like you can't believe. I just want to brush off 2008 and hope none of the dust of the year clings to my shirt yet I know that the whole point of life is to learn from our mistakes, know that He is there for us, know that He has a bigger plan for us. One that maybe in this life we will not ever understand. One whose lesson maybe gets taught to generations in the future. Yet I still have this huge hope for all of us. My immediate family, my friends, my business, my community, my state, my country, my generation, my world. . . I wish on all of my friends a magical new world in the future. Pray and continue to pray. . .ceasesessly. . .

Hana was in her first school Christmas show this year!! She is wiped out from all the ballet dancing she had to perform this weekend!

The cute little Bo Peep Sheep! Ryan dragged them around through the hole show and fell in love with one of them! The one on the left! Eliza!!
Toymakers assistant and the little wind up toy duckie! I can't believe I didn't get a picture of all of us together. It was one of the best times having my 2 kiddies on stage with me!!

My little toymakers assistant!! This is back stage and although at first Ryan didn't like the fact that he had to wear makeup, by the 5th show he was getting used to it. He actually liked it! I have to say he looks so beautiful!
