Christmas At The Densley
Dec 27th, 2010 by ron

Merry Christmas!  What a glorious time of the year when we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

#1.  Ron was in charge of cooking breakfast for our ward Christmas Breakfast.  They cooked sausage, hash browns and French toast in the parking lot of the church.  The breakfast was really good and we had a really fun time with the members of the ward there.

#2.  With the recent floods in Southern Utah, this is a view of the swollen Santa Clara creek.  The flood waters have since subsided and minimal damage.

#3.  We had a family Christmas Eve dinner at Josh and Brenda’s house for those family members who could come.  It was so much fun to be together with Matt and Becca and kids and Josh and Brenda and Preston and Brenda’s sister Anna and her husband Matt and their 3 kids and her brother D.J. and Melissa and 3 kids.  The kids all opened new P.J’s.  After suiting up in their new pajamas, they all drove around looking at Christmas lights and looking for Santa!

#4.  Josh got new jammies also!  Kayla is in the background.

#5.  “Grandma Net” and Madison.

#6.  Madison really wanted a nightgown for Christmas so grandma bought some bright fabric and made her one.  Also, a gown for her dolly.  Madi was so happy!

#7.  Grandpa Ron used this rocking chair when he was a really little boy.  Grandpa sanded it all down and repaired it and refinished it for Preston.  Preston loves to go out into the shop with Ron and Josh—thus—Grandpa’s Helper!

#8.  We love the view of Pine Valley Mountain with all its snow and Snow Canyon State Park with its beautiful red rocks.  This truly is a beautiful part of the world.

#9.  Preston loves his rocking chair!

#10.  We gave Preston his first tent!

#11.  Mitch sent Josh an RC jet for Christmas.  On Christmas afternoon, Josh went out with Matt and Austin to fly his plane.  They had a lot of fun until it crashed!!!!!!

#12.  We always have our Christmas dinner in the evening on Christmas night.  We were so happy to have Matt and Becca, Kayla, Austin and Madison, Josh and Brenda and Preston and Anna and Matt (Brenda’s sister and her husband) and their 3 kids with us.  The dinner was delicious-complete with turkey, ham, potatoes and gravy, stuffing and sparkling cider (non-alcoholic apple juice).

We had a wonderful Christmas and were so happy to be back at home with family.  There is no place like home for the holidays.

We are also thrilled to report that Nikola, our friend and translator from Serbia will arrive on New Year’s Eve.  We will pick him up in Las Vegas airport and drive him back to Ivins for a couple of days.  We will then drive him to Provo, Utah to help him get settled to begin his graduate studies at BYU.  We are

happy that he can come to our corner of the earth and see how we live life here in Utah.  We are also very proud of him for his accomplishments in being accepted into the graduate program at the Y.

We send our love and best wishes to all.
