Back to church!

Kerstin continues to feel great! Your prayers are working. God is so good. We were able to attend church as a family today, and it felt so wonderful. We are learning to celebrate the little things and try not to take anything for granted. We sat in back away from the crowd and didn't hang around afterwards. Even though Kerstin's counts are coming up, we still have to be cautious about her catching any "bugs." Thanks for checking in with us. We love hearing from you! Have a great week! (We got to light 4 candles on the Advent wreath today - Christmas is just around the corner.)

Family activities are indeed a blessing. What special treats these everyday things are and how grateful we are that you're enjoying them together! Continue to have fun with the holidays and celebrate every moment. With love & prayers -- and a Christmas box on the way! --

Hey Leafs...

Brenna and I got to light candles on Sunday too. At least you guys had a fireman with you if anything went sour... I assume all went well.
The good news is that nothing started on fire and Brenna did not burn herself carrying the candle down the aisle.

May God continue to bless the Leafs and especially Kerstin with good health.

Love
Brian and Brenna

Kerstin-
We are so glad that you are feeling good and are able to get out and about and do some things! It makes the time pass much more quickly!
Are you all ready for Christmas? Are you ready for big sis to be out of school so she can play with you? I bet you are. Abby went to school today, and her big sis stayed home sick!
We miss you and hope that you have a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS! Hi to Mom, Dad and McKenzie!
Love,
Kristi and Abby Bridgewater

Hi Kerstin,
Adrienne spotted you at church on Sunday. She liked your outfit a lot! Two bad we couldn't find one in her size. We just spent two hours at the mall trying to find something for her to wear to church on Christmas Eve... AAGH! Wait til you and McKensie are teenagers, it's not as easy to dress up then! We did accomplish our mission, but we had to stop for a french fry break. We're glad you got to worship as a family. We keep praying that your counts go up and up!
Hugs and prayers-
Julie Anderson
