December in Review

Our December flew by - here are some pictures from the last month.
St. Lucy day - Miriam was up extra early to bring donuts to her brothers.
William shows off one of the cookies he decorated.
We had a wonderful visit with Grandma Cindy and Grandpa Deacon Ray
We decorated our Christmas tree :-)

Winter snow - enjoying the sledding hill. 

Twas the night before Christmas...
 And we went to "Midnight Mass" at 9pm

Miriam had a special "star" hair-do

O Come Let us Adore Him!

Christ our Lord is born!
Christmas morning stockings filled by St. Nicholas!
Christmas Day gifts!
Everyone enjoys their new bean bag chairs!
Wearing their "super" new costumes!
A special gift from William to Dad

Dad got a new shield for his collection :-)
On Christmas day we were blessed to the day with Phil's family including Phil's grandpa who we got to tell how much we loved him which was a blessing because passed away yesterday on December 27th surrounded by his four daughters.  We will miss him very much!  Eternal rest grant unto Richard Steinegger, O Lord, and perpetual light shine upon him.  May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed. Rest in peace.  Amen.   (I unfortunately did not have my camera handy for the family gathering but there were some great family pictures taken and hopefully I'll get copies :-)
Luke playing Mass with new vestments from Aunt Jenny!
Snowman fun!
We are enjoying these beautiful days of the Christmas Octave together as a family and wish you and yours all the blessings of this Holy Season!
