We had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are excited to share the
highlights with you.
We were so lucky to have visitors. My sister Lindsey spent a week with
us and we had a blast touring Boston all lit up. The weather was beautiful
and the girls loved the huge Christmas trees.
After she headed home Kathleen
(Burke's Mom) came to spend Christmas with us. The girls had so much
fun playing with Grandma and I loved having her help cooking.
She made her famous orange rolls for a Christmas EVE Brunch that we
invited the missionaries and friends without family in MA to attend. The
guys took the kids sledding and the missionaries built some pretty
awesome "snow-Elders" and "snow-Sisters" Burke deep fried a turkey for
Christmas Eve dinner and the Elders stayed to help us eat it all. The
girls let us sleep in until 8:00 Christmas morning and Santa brought
them all their hearts desired. We ate lots of leftovers and talked to
family during the day.
Kathleen stayed until New Years Eve and we also went and saw the sights
in Boston. While we had a babysitter Burke and I went up to New
Hampshire and spent the day campaigning for Mitt Romney. We had a great time and made over 300 phone calls. It was exciting to be a part of history. We only wish he had won the New Hampshire primary. Well we did our best....
Our biggest Christmas surprise was the news that we are expecting baby
number three!!! I am due on the 9th of August and am almost through
that yucky first trimester. We feel so blessed to welcome another special
spirit into our home. We had a wonderful and very memorable
Christmas. We hope you all had a great Christmas too.
All our love,
The Johnson Family

Another Christmas is here and we are excited for Santa to come down the Chimney. It has been a joy to share all our special moments with you through the year. We are truly grateful for the blessing of family and friends. We have felt the blessings of the Lord in our life and are grateful for the gift of his son Jesus Christ. We hope you feel his love and ours this Christmas.
