Home for the holidays?

Hi everyone,

Our son Jeff and daughter-in-law Jennifer arrive this afternoon from Portland to share Christmas and New Year. Daughter Robin, son-in-law Tim, and grandsons Kris and Tyler live here in Springfield. Sister Jule, nephew Jon, niece-in-law Sarah, and their daughter Alexis live in Monett, Missouri. On Christmas Eve we’ll all come together at our house for the traditional family dinner and exchange of presents.

I know that many of you will either be traveling or have loved ones who are. I wish safe journeys to everyone and joyous reunions wherever they take place.

Please don’t forget to send me your Christmas poem or memory if you have something to share on my blog post for December 24-25. We’re getting a nice collection.
