S: Christmas In Missouri 2009

1: A Christmas to Remember

4: The planning began early! Grandma Marian was instrumental in organizing and making a schedule for meals and sleeping arrangements. We were not sure at first how we would all fit, and then there was the little matter of the bathroom not being done...as the week approached, so did the crazy Missouri weather. An unusual and record setting blizzard and winter snowfall set upon us. Mom and dad Dew arrived early to help get ready. The Lien, and Chris Dew families decided to arrive a day early to beat the storm. Jeremy finished the upstairs bath with dad's help about a half an hour before Chris and family arrived. We spent our week sharing meals, playing games, making crafts, watching movies, exchanging special gifts, enjoying a Christmas Eve lunch at Fuji's Japanese Steakhouse, pizza and a swimming party at Ramada's Monkey Cove, Christmas Eve communion, as well as just hanging out and visiting with one another. Well, there may have been a few loads of dishes, a few trash bags, and a bit of throw-up and laundry in there too. A Christmas to Remember, and, a good time had by all! | Joy Unceasing

19: and Bingo was his name-o...

21: Jacob and Morgan Lien

22: Presents under the tree... everyone wants to know, what's for me?? This year we talked about getting what we deserved. None of us deserve the love of Jesus, who came to earth so full of power but in the fragile form of a baby. None of us deserved the love that He has offered us from arms stretched out on a "tree". We give gifts this year, and in the years to come, because Christ lavished love on us, when we least deserved it. It was fun to give this year... knowing we each gave in the spirit of Jesus, Each gift undeserved, yet offered with lavish joy and received with humble hearts.

26: We ate most of the food before we could get pictures of it

27: Christmas pj's were first, followed by our gift exchange
