Christmas Letter

Here is a Christmas letter that was send out in 2000. It was something that I just came across. Many people send out Christmas letters to their friends and families. It was a trying year where everything had seemed to fall apart. If anyone reads this, sing it to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas".

Happy Holidays to Everyone,

2000 has been some year for our family. My husband, Tim decided to be the sick one this year. Up until now he rarely got sick. We have had appliances and cars break down. Our washer flooded our basement.

But I guess it hasn’t been all that bad. We went to visit my family nearly 2,000 miles away. I was able to see a couple of old friends (well…not too old). Our daughter Brittany is an artist. Some of her sketches are featured on different websites. (Update 2009, we lost where those websites were. But her self portrait in charcoal can be found on Zazzle.)

It is a good thing when you can laugh at such horriable mishaps. This reminded me a lot of my squidoo lens about our wedding venture. Things were handle, and it turned out okay. Merry Christmas **handing you a cup of virtual coco**
