Christmas 2011

Needless to say, this Christmas was much more eventful than last year. Jasper was so much more into the festivities and seemed to get quite a bit of enjoyment out of the day. We spent Christmas Eve in Cody with Brandon's family and got a fun vising from Gary & Stacia Linton and their two kids. Christmas Day brought church and a trip down to Worland, with a stop-over in Cowley to read some Christmas stories to Kerrigan, for Christmas with the Foulgers. We also solved to problem of Kerrigan's empty stocking, which made things a little easier for me this year. Last year it was so hard to see her little stocking sit empty on the wall, as it was such a strong reminder that we had lost her just a month prior. So this year, we bought some fun books that Kerrigan would have loved: a new version of "The Three Billy Goats Gruff," a story she had adored since Grandma & Grandpa Foulger gave her a copy of it for Christmas in 2009, and a "Dinosaur Train" book, as it was one of her absolute favorite shows! The books were wrapped, and addressed To Jasper, From Kerrigan. And each year, there will be story books for her siblings in her stocking, since she had such a deep love of books and a love for her brother that he will never know.
