I wanted to do a shorter and lighter post today. So I thought I would post the little things I listed in my Christmas letter this year.
Best Blessing--My husband got a promotion at his job in September.
Best Spiritual Moment--My youngest son trusted in Jesus as His Savior in June.
Best Fieldtrip--The girls and I went to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Home & Museum in Mansfield, Missouri.
Best Visitor--My brother came to visit all the way from Washington in August.
Best Restaurant--The Skies. It is a restaurant that rotates in the sky. We celebrated a friend's 40th birthday there.
Best Quote--"Faith is a desperate dive out of the sinking boat of human effort and a prayer that God will be there to pull us out of the water."--Max Lucado
Best Movie--The Great Raid. It was based on the true story of the Baton Death March during World War II. It was a very moving movie.

I also wanted to bring attention to a blog that The Conservative UAW guy and some of his friends started. It is a blog about the TV show 24. I am a huge fan of the show so I was excited to see it. If anyone else is a fan you can go check it out: Blogs 4 Bauer.
