Kev lost his job in November right when the RS president and Bishop were organizing the Angel Tree for the ward. Janice called me and asked me to submit a couple of items for the tree so ward members could help us with Christmas. It was so thoughtful. It seemed like every time I answered my phone or door in November, someone was doing something amazing for us. Truly amazing.
I was so grateful for the charity shown to us, and before Christmas I explained to Aspen that some gifts are from people in our ward who love us, and who wanted us to have an amazing Christmas. I hope she understands it! Last year we were in a position to take a name from the tree and give to someone in need, and next year we plan to do it again.
It was a wonderful Christmas and I'm so glad Kev had the day off to spend with family. It was also so amazing to have a white Christmas. I told Aspen that was Santa's gift to her since I'm really lazy about pretending Santa exists. I figure it's fair that Santa brought snow because everyone gets to enjoy it ;).
