 Dear Kids,

I got through my chemo OK, but I’m having a hard time pulling out of it.  My arms feel like they weigh a hundred pounds and it’s hard to type.  But I’ll put down the main things.

I don’t feel up to having Sunday visitors today, but there’s the First Presidency broadcast at 6 pm for everyone to watch.  It always makes me feel like Christmas is here.

The Cousins’ Christmas Party will be Saturday the 18th at Nora’s house.  Nora realizes there are some conflicts, but there really isn’t another day that will work.  Ice skating will be from 12:30 to 2:30 (how I wish I had enough energy to skate!) and dinner will be at 5.  Presents at 6.  Be there or be square.

The Messiah is next Sunday at 7 at Tom’s church.  I’m not sure whether there will be an after party or a before party, but I’ll put it in my letter next week.  I know I’ll feel better then, and it will be a glorious evening.  There’s nothing as wonderful as singing the Hallelujah chorus.

Jacob was endowed yesterday morning in the Provo temple, and Dad was able to go.  He said it was really nice.  They had a luncheon afterwards at Julie and Spencer’s place.

Missionary farewells: Adelaide on December 26, and Jacob on January 9.  I’ll put in the times next week.

This is as much as I can type.  I love you all!
