Benson Family Christmas Letter

This year I did not do a Christmas letter. But then I realized how much I like hearing about how everyone else's year has been, and I decided to take a few minutes and write one. So here goes:

Benson Family Christmas Letter
This year has gone by really fast
All our expectations have been well surpassed
Larry and Jen have been really quite busy
Hope has started the "2 year old tizzy"!

Lauren and Josh have been doing so well
They're growing up fast, I'm sure you can tell.
Lauren is 11 going on 20
Aeorpostale clothes...she has plenty!

Lauren loves to shop & shop & shop
And Josh is full of energy and goes non-stop.
He's eight this year and a wonderful boy,
He brings our family so much joy!

He was baptized this year by his Dad.
He played football..yes tackle might I add.
He loves to play with Lego's and loves to read.
His favorite is Captain Underpants if you can believe.

Hope..well Hope, she is two
You just never know what she's going to do.
She's absolutely adorable, cute as can be.
We just know in our family is where she was meant to be!

She's talking non-stop, we understand most.
She is really smart..I don't mean to boast.
She loves Strawberry Shortcake and Winnie-the Pooh
She loves to say her colors, her favorite is blue.

Jen has been healthy and feeling so good
Someone's looking out for me, I knew that they would.
This years CAT scans have been great; my doctor is amazed
That I continue year after year and seem unfazed.

I just try to do my best day after day
and as for the cancer...I continue to pray!
I am thankful and humbled by my family and friends
The love I have felt from you knows no end.

Larry is amazing, and this is no lie!
He has no limits...well, maybe the sky.
He's still with Sutherlands, going on 20 years
It may be 20 more, or so it appears.

He's the go-to guy for all our friends
His home improvement knowledge never ends.
He's out of the bishopric, time for a break
Now on the High Council, for goodness sake.

It's been a great year for us, we feel really blessed.
We're ready for a New Year, I must confess.
We hope your Christmas is Merry and Bright.
And your New Year is also "outta sight"!!
