I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

So finally got my DSL hooked up and live in the 21st century, so here are a few Christmas pictures. This is one of our favorite Christmas traditions: decorating cookies for Santa. We are sure Santa loves piles of frosting and gobs of candy on his cookies.
We also have our traditional Christmas Jammies. That is my favorite part of Christmas!
