My Christmas Letter

It’s Christmas! The season for giving for loving, for celebrating. All around us are joyous reminders of this happy season. Twinkling Christmas lights. Holiday music on the radio. Promises of snow on the weather forecast. The smell of fresh pine cones. Just baked gingerbread cookies right from the oven and children making Christmas lists for Santa Claus..

All around us are stressful reminders too. Irritated shoppers and crowded malls. Honking horns and traffic jams. Frantic meal preparations and credit card debt. Sometimes we get so caught up in the seasonal madness we forget why we even celebrate Christmas at all.

Savor all memories……Old and New.

Focus on love and laughter that make Christmas so special. If we pause for a moment in our hectic holiday schedules, we will realize God has brought people into our lives for a reason. And that my friend is among the best blessings of all.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year……………

Scott, Jenny, Madison and Miller Green



This is the letter that is in our Christmas card this year....I thought I would share it with you all. I wrote this 3 years ago......I hope you all remember to enjoy the real meaning of Christmas.....

Happy Holidays my friends....

What a nice letter. Reading that actually calmed me a bit. The traffic jams and rushing to make a meal seems like my nightly routine these days.

I'm going to buy cinamon scented pine cones tonight, just to add a little cheer to the air. Thanks!

You said it for all of us, Jen. Let's all slow down and enjoy this wonderful time of year.
