Missing Mary --

We've been getting ready for Christmas...setting up all the lights and Nativity sets.....

Where's Mary ? ?

Marky compromised and re-located our dancing dash Hula girl who was lately entertaining our two frogs on top of their aquarium.

They miss her.

Yes, it takes a village...and she seems more than willing to step in to fill the void until Mary finds her way back to the Manger.

Meantime.. all is well at the Jeanes home.

Marky has been well and feeling GREAT !

Sam made it to his first Utah Down's Syndrome Christmas party....

We've always been invited each year, but this is our first healthy year that we could all go...and that "Mom" didnt have to work late and could take everyone.

I started crying as soon as we walked into the party. !

Little faces of Angels everywhere !

All ages of precious Angels with Down's Syndrome ---

Overwhelming. Love. Gifts. Fortune. Treasures. Humility. Gratitude.

Just a few of the words that filled my heart on that night.

I felt unworthy to be in their world. Yet, I was. And for that I am grateful to my Father in Heaven for his mercy. To allow me this wonderful gift.

Hope your Holidays are filled with Joy and Peace.

Love, Lynette and Family

Nettie, you just crack me up! Who else would think of such an amazing stand-in for Mary! She's lovely! One of our shepherds has had a broken shoulder for years, but we didn't even think to give him a night off. Next year maybe we'll be more considerate and look for a stand-in for him.

I'm glad you get to have such amazing experiences with Sammy and his angel buddies. I was just rereading the tale of how you met Brock (the second time) across the street when you were searching for your home. How he touched your life and how you touched his! When you think of the billions of people in the world it's a marvel when someone crosses our path in special way, sometimes more than once. The One who plans the universe must make incredible plans for those we each need in our lives. I'm glad He made my path cross with yours. My life is better for it. I'm a better person for knowing you and your family.
