Bringing a close to another year at the Johnson's it truly was a

Blessed & Happy Christmas

With all the boys home, and the recent joy of Bryan & Sabrina's engagement news, it truly was a great Christmas. We were busy as always starting on Christmas Eve where we attended our most longstanding tradition - visiting Kathy's side of the family at Jay & Val's home.

From there we stopped at Barb & Randy's home to catch up with the Johnson cousins and my Mom who was also in town from Florida. After we left the Gray's, Ben Brad and I went to Christmas Eve service at Trinity. Beautiful and lovely - it was an excellent reminder of the true message of Christmas.

On Christmas Day we opened presents in our home and were joined by Sabrina mid-morning. Following we went to sister Jean & Steve Gallo's home for an early brunch as Laurie's family was jetting off to Florida in late afternoon.
