SO this is all I have for right now! But none the less we really enjoyed this! All the kids were really into it this year and it was so fun to watch the girls get Doyle so excited about santa coming! Brian always gets on the internet and tracks where Santa is and he told Cambry that santa was in Cuba so she better get in bed and stay there! Cambry went running into the room and told Kaely with so much excitement that Santa was in cuba!! Like she even knew where Cuba was!! It was so funny. We also died laughing when we went to the table where the kids had but the cookies and milk and found a five dollar bill and some change! I think they tried to butter him up to the bitter end!!! Kids are so cute and I love that I can share these sweet memories with all of you!! Hope you had a Very Merry Christmas! We love you all!!! The cluffs
For Christmas this year David and Christi got the grandkids a miniture horse and this is as big as it will get! The kids had a blast riding this and Cambry told Amy while on the ride that she dreamed of this her whole life! Cute huh! The kids love going over to grandma and grandpa's and mimi and papa's houses!
Brian surprised me with a trip to Hawaii last Christmas and we had a blast! From a Helicopter ride in Hilo, Hawaii to biking 22 miles down a mountain in maui and having a romantic dinner on our Anniversary on our ship it couldn't have been a better time to spend with eachother!

Blessings Will Come When We Make Our Home a Sanctuary
"Let us make our homes sanctuaries of righteousness, places of prayer, and abodes of love that we might merit the blessings that can come only from our Heavenly Father. We need His guidance in our daily lives."
“May we . . . demonstrate kindness and love within our own families. Our homes are to be more than sanctuaries; they should also be places where God’s Spirit can dwell, where the storm stops at the door, where love reigns and peace dwells.”
