He’s come a long way since last year’s Christmas program. Remember Lovie Bear and the Christmas Program?

I miss him when it’s a family thing and he’s not there. But he’s healing and growing and resting up for the big Christmas day.
It’s beginning to feel a just little bit like Christmas around here.
