Merry Christmas 2014

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

This was taken at the Grand America.
We always go there for a weekend the
last weekend before Christmas to celebrate
being done (mostly) with our preparations
and to enjoy the Christmas atmosphere of
The Grand and Salt Lake and the lights on
the Salt Lake Temple.  As they seated all
18 of us I was overwhelmed with our
wonderful family and the blessings all of
the little ones bring and the quote came to 
my mind,

"All because two people fell in love!"

Nothing could bring me more joy than these
precious gifts from God.

We just had a new baby in November and another
was just announced arriving in July!  What a joy to
have such a wonderful family.

We still have our youngest son on an 
LDS  mission in Seoul, Korea.  

We get to talk to him
for Christmas and that will be one of the 
highlights of Christmas.  

We hope this year brings you joy and happiness.
May you feel the peace, joy and hope that
abounds because of the birth of Christ
at this time of year and through all the
year as we strive to follow His example.

Merry Christmas!!


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
