Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you all from the Lincoln Leafs. We had a nice, quiet Christmas at home. Grandma and Grandpa Gnuse were able to stay with us. We always enjoy their visits. Santa was able to come down the chimney and leave a few things in the new basement this year! Kerstin wasn't able to go to church with us because her counts are down, but she put on her pretty dress anyway.

McKinsey is riding her new scooter from Santa. McKinsey also got a McDonalds cash register playset from her sister. Would you like fries with that?

Kerstin got a Dora doll from Santa and twin babies from her sister. We were able to spend lots of time today playing with the new toys. (Of course it takes at least 45 minutes to get each toy out of its box!!)

We will be in Lincoln for a few more days at least until Kerstin's counts get high enough to go back to Omaha for her next round of chemo. We will get some lab work done at the Infusion Center at St. E's tomorrow. Thanks for all of your prayers. Take some time to remember baby Jesus today and every day. God's blessings to you!

Dear Kerstin & McKinsey, Jeff & Annie,

Merry Christmas! It was fun talking to you girls on the phone about your dolls and cash register. :) Casey & Kenna missed you more than EVER after the call, but they smiled again quickly cuz they love you so much [Uncle Carl and I do, too, of course!].

And thank you for reminding everyone to think of Baby Jesus; everyday we thank God for Jesus, and for so much else. :)

Merry Christmas!!!
It was fun to talk to you on the phone but wish we could have been with you. There's always next year. My boys are kind of old poops any more anyway. As soon as the presents are opened, they disappear into the basement. Jeremy and Marcus just rolled out of bed, so they're having breakfast for lunch. Jeremy just dropped a whole new container of butter on the floor and put a hole in it. Now he has a mess to deal with. Are you sure he can't come live with you for awhile? Hopefully this note will find you in Omaha getting your last major chemo treatment. I bet you're ready to get this hospital stuff done with and get back to being a kindergartener. It was fun to see all the pictures of you at school. The teacher in me was checking out the classroom and everything else I could see. It looked like you had a visitor. Since when does Grandma Clarice go to your school? Has she been trying to get extra homework for you? Take care! We miss you guys lots!
