Christmas Miracles

I keep hoping that one day I am going to look at our blog and it will have magically updated itself. Is that lazy?
So here are a few of our Christmas miracles.
1. The night of our family Christmas party, Jessica steamed burned her fingers while she was trying to pick up a roasting oven with Sarah. It was pretty scary. My mom took her to insta-care where they put lots of stuff on them and bandaged them up really good. The miracle is that she didn't burn her thumbs and one finger. The finger that didn't burn had a band-aid on it because a couple of weeks earlier, she cut it really bad with a knife. It was also a miracle that the burns were only 2nd degree burns and not third. Thank goodness! And we were all so blessed that she could go to the bathroom by herself!
Here she is showing off her awesome bandages. Her fingers are recovering nicely. She only has 2 (I think) that are still really tender.
2. Sarah spent many hours working on her beautiful handmade ornaments for Christmas. They can be seen in the previous post. We were getting in the truck to head to Provo, when she dropped one on the asphalt and it rolled down the street. The miracle: it didn't shatter! It really is amazing, since those balls tend to break easily.
3. Christmas miracle number 3 - Sarah had 3 job interviews in the last two weeks of December. It was a bit stressful, but it was such good news. And she had another interview set up for January. I'll let her blog about the outcome of all those job interviews.

But our Christmas was wonderful and we had a lot of fun. More posts will follow.

Poor, poor Jessica! Hope they get all better soon! So nice to recognize those miracles in our lives - small or large :)

I'm glad Jessica is doing better, that was scary! I am laughing about you being blessed she could use the bathroom herself though! I'll be looking forward to hearing more about your interviews Sarah!
