Scott's mural honors the DayLight Special Train that ran from Los Angeles to San Francisco and back every day. Part of the rails went along the coast. Many people have stopped to see the train and remember it from the past. Scott has been on this mural for six weeks. Today, January 10, he is finished!!!
Our Pageant began with a beautiful rendition of Carol of the Bells from Justin, Joanna, Julia, Joshua. Janae and Jordan. It was fun to have a real live baby in the "manger" and plenty of "actors" from the ranks of the family. We ended the night with viewing the Claymation Christmas video, a must see tradition.
All available family members gathered at Jon and Jan's house for Italian food, a program and to act out the manager pageant. Cody, Joanna, Benson, Janae and Dan were visiting from Utah. Benson the baby was a good candidate for the baby Jesus. Little Eleanor, in her red Christmas dress was the star of the show.
We had a surprise visit from Casaundra Bishop and Nick Petersen. Sister Bishop was a missionary in Gilroy for six months last year. Nick is a grandson of our close friend, Lois Blount in Boise. They came to see us in December just before their wedding on December 27th in the Boise Temple.
