  18. Ava truly is becoming a beautiful little girl. I know this Christmas with her will be even better than last Christmas, because she is getting to the age where she can understand a little of what Christmas is really about-Our Savior.
    You and your family continue to be in my prayers.
    Merry Christmas to you and Ryder and Ava
