Merry Christmas

It is Christmas night. All is calm and quiet and bright. We had a wonderful Christmas with a few big twists. My sister's new baby Sam had to have an operation on the 23rd so they were in the hospital with him till Christmas eve night. That was disturbing but we are grateful the doctors found what had been going wrong with his digesting his food and that he is recovering well at home now.

Also my parents got a big envelope in the mail from our Church Headquarters, specifically the missionary department. ;) They will be serving another 18 month mission in Kenya again starting this July.

We are enjoying family in town and new exciting presents (trains trains trains! a rocking horse, an ipod nano, a new camera and an exersaucer!) I will post photos from Sabrina's new camera shortly. She was our Christmas photographer this year.

But for now, here is our Christmas card for all of you to wish you a very merry Christmas from the "8 Waites,"


Here is the original photo by my sister in law Elizabeth. Thanks Buff!

Darling!

A family in our ward has just learned their son has Burkitt's lymphoma...if you could possibly ask for prayers for them. His name is Caleb LeBaron, he is 6 and could use all the prayers he can get as his cancer is very aggressive. There is also a fund set up at Well's Fargo. If you want more info email me @ vegasmom77 @ gmail. com
I wrote a blog post here about it:

I am not a member of the church, but we are teammates of Caleb, and we care for him so much. If there is anything we can do, though we know help is in abundance, please know that we are here. His teammates Parker & Gavin miss him. -The Thammavongsa Family (Melissa, Bryan, Sedtha (17) Triplets Parker, Alyson & Gavin (7)
