Merry Christmas From the Storment’s

Christmas 2013 Movie

So this is what we’ve been doing for the past several days. The company says that it takes 2 “moderately skilled” workers 20 hours. It took 7 of us 36 hours. (We felt like we were being insulted by an instruction manual)

I feel a bit like that kid in the new Apple commercial who spent Christmas making a video, but this was one of the most fun presents Leslie and I have ever been able to give. And it takes a village…literally. Almost our whole street that got involved in building this.

It’s hard to believe that one year ago, Hannah was born, it was a joy, and a bit confusing, celebrating everything today, but we are so thankful that we have so much to celebrate.

We’ve never been good at planning enough to send out Christmas Cards to all the people who have blessed our lives. And honestly, we’ve been so lucky with friends we can’t afford the stamps. But here’s a way of saying thank you to all of our friends and family.

Whatever your Christmas looks like, or whoever you built something for, from our family to yours,

Merry Christmas!

    Jonathan, that was beautiful, just beautiful. The joy on your kids’ faces was priceless. I saw lots of screws and bolts in the video, but no nails. That may be why it took so long; you can’t tell a nail from a screw or bolt.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours!
