People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Tales of Christmas

These are a couple of cute dresses that I had for the girls for Christmas.

My mom got them some cute matching dresses as well so I'll post pics of those later.
Sweet little elf. Doesn't she remind you of a cabbage patch doll?

Kandra gives the evil eye.

Then she poses for a cute shot.

Well, I know you are all wondering how my ankle is doing. It is getting better. It swelled up and bruised both sides of my ankle and on top of my foot and down by my toes. I am starting to walk without a limp but it is still a little tender. We went and saw National Treasure 2 and it was good but I don't think it was as good as the first. It didn't seemed to fill in details as much as the first one. Entertaining though to say the least.
So here we are at the close of another year. Christmas was great because it was spent with family. We went to AZ to be with my family and Kandra and Jared came from Ohio. Regan had fun ripping open presents even if they were hers or not. Sophie is just a great baby. Very contented. On the 20th she cut her first tooth and has been quite good about it except at night. We have many blessings that we feel grateful for and that includes all of you!

Have a Happy, Bright, Adventerous, Fun New Year!!

Love, The Joys!!!
