Merry Christmas, Love the Dilles

It's been an interesting holiday for our little family. Through this holiday I believe we have all learned how important family is and what a blessing it is to have a loving family. Mike's dad went into the hospital on Christmas Eve for surgery to have his thyroid removed and won't be home until tomorrow night. So we had an early Christmas on Sunday for his dad. It's funny how unimportant Christmas presents are and what a focus they have become in our society. No one really cared what they received but what we cared about was the opportunity we had to gather everyone together, siblings and spouses and grand kids and parents. It's the chance to laugh together and the chance to feel the Saviors love that truly matters. So this Christmas I am grateful for my little family and I am grateful for the Savior, for his atoning sacrifice for me and I am grateful for the gospel. I hope each of you have a blessed Christmas full of love, peace and joy!

PS- We believe Carter will be getting his first tooth from Santa this year. I'll post more about our recent adventures tomorrow. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas. I hope Mike's dad is doing better. A new tooth for Carter-teething babies are so much fun!

I am so excited for the teething baby. Hope it's not too bad. I have your Dad is doing better Mike. Let us know if you are ever in Utah or near Pocatello. I would love to see you both again and cute little Carter. Have a great New Year.

Thanks for taking the great family photo for us Linds! Even the professional photographer Mike's family hired couldn't get a smile out of Carter like you did. You're hired for next year too. :)
