        Good Friday morning all. I am running a little late today. I hope all will have a great Christmas. When you read this Christmas will be over. God bless all of you.
        I went to church both times. Our Christmas music was great. They had worked hard on the songs, but Teresa don’t give up. She does real good. Love you Theresa and all the ones that sing. All the little ones did real good too. The youngest in the group was 2-1/2 year old Lilly and Bella VanHoose. Also Caleb Carroll, he is 4. They learn so good. Love you kids.
