christmas week

So grateful for healthy kids this Christmas! Isaiah's last appointment went well: his counts are much lower but still OK. We're very aware of the memory of spending last Christmas in the hospital with a fever.

Every single piece of our Advent celebration this year seems so rich. We're breathing deeply and taking it all in. Highlights so far include our conversations with our church community which continues to demonstrate such an encouraging desire to put into practice the way of Jesus, Sienna and Carmen's making communion bread for our Sunday gatherings in Advent, and an early Christmas celebration with the Oates tribe. This week is the Emmaus Christmas gathering (Wednesday) and Christmas Day with the Rojas side.

We'll share more soon. We're loving all the Christmas cards and updates from friends. Thank you!
