Merry Christmas!

First, I must apologize to our good friend Dan Stuart, of Mesquite, Nevada, who paid us a visit last week.  Hillary is the photographer and blogger and she was not present for the visit, hence no photo, no comment!  I just enjoyed the visit forgetting that we are trying to record everything.  Sorry Dan!  Send us a photo so we can fix this record.  Anyway, Dan had been wanting to visit for the longest time, but Kevin was just too sick or out of town in the hospital for it to happen.  We haven't had satellite TV since last May and Dan knows we have enjoyed watching Dancing with the Stars.  He recorded the whole season on DVD's for us and brought them with him.  That was so sweet of him and I know it was a pain.  He tried to mail them and the Post Office mistakenly sent them back.  Anyway we have been watching them and enjoying them.  It's great watching them without commercials and no pressure to vote because it's a done deal.  Fast forward over the boring stuff!  Anyway thank you Dan, we love you and appreciate your visit!

Please know that we are having a Merry Christmas.  Our needs are all being met.  In many ways this may be the most joyous Christmas ever for us.  We have been on the receiving end of so much Christlike like love for so long now we have been feeling the true spirit of Christmas for months already.  We don't need a Christmas tree or wrapped gifts to enjoy the season and feel the love of the Savior.  We are enjoying Christmas movies, music, food, friendship, and family.  We don't need anything else.  Kevin is handling the Chemo very well and it's working!  We are very pleased with his improvements.  We are making real progress.  We have the most wonderful doctors on the planet treating Kevin!  We continue to feel your prayers and know that the power of prayer is continuing to sustain, strengthen and heal.  We love you all and wish you the Merriest of Christmases and a blessed New Year!

Last night the Young Women from 3 wards came all the way to our home with their wonderful leaders to sing carols to us.  They were so beautiful and brought the Christmas spirit into our home.  We thank them for sharing their time and talents with us.  Hillary couldn't be there but made sure we took a picture.  She will update the blog with that later.  I rely on her to do all this and obviously take it for granted.  Thank you Hillary for all that you do for us, and it's a lot!  Love to all,  Dale
