the "family" of French Bread & Family ... Season's Blessings!

before flying home...

Jay covered the Boise State Broncos win over The University of
 Washington Huskies at the Las Vegas Bowl.

he has loved getting acquainted with his new nephew, Ben.

he brought Ben his first pair of Nike's!
Jay also brought Jason a pair in "Daddy size".
very "on trend"... the latest Nike Free's!
"like father, like son!"

he continued his little gift giving idea for Chrislyn and Holland with
a little coziness from "down under"!
"like mother, like daughter!"

there was lot's of play time on the floor with Holland.

there was a baptism and

 the celebration of the sweetest birth for all mankind!

 Welcome Baby Jesus!

there were arm loads comfort and joy!

Santa came to Holland's house!

she LOVED her first place setting of fine melamine a la Elmo!

i also think that she was pretty charmed with her first pair of Oshkosh's!

the GRANDS with Ben!

we had so many blessings to count. Mom was home from the hospital
and dressed in style for Christmas Day!

with Mom's rigorous PT schedule, they had not yet taken their picture for
their Christmas Cards.  Dad asked that i take it in front of our tree!
talk about a picture that's worth a thousand words!

 this image has been supported by thousands of blog land prayers!
you helped her heal from her bad fall  in September, and  through her stroke on
Thanksgiving Day. 

is it possible to love people that you have never met!

i believe it is!

...and then there is me and Mr D!  we just keep movin' and groovin' on this
crazy ~ beautiful path that is paved...


Season's Blessings!
