Christmas Time!

Christmas week was busy as we had four very special guests come for a visit to our home in Chicago the weekend before and stay overnight. Then we left Monday for time at home with the Staddon family and friends.  Here is a glimpse into our two exciting weeks!

Our guests: Mr. & Mrs. Gren (also known as my dear, sweet, wonderful spiritual heroine, Elisabeth Elliot!), and Danielle Sobie with her mom!

At the Staddons home, we began Christmas festivities with concerts:
