Our Christmas Moments of Joy~

We traveled in December to attend our dear son in law, Michael's graduation from the University of South Dakota. He earned his PhD. in Psychology and we can now call him Dr. Thomas which brings me great joy. Our Daughter, Christina and Brandon with their family joined us for this wonderful moment in time.
