Boxing Day

photo (26)

Well, Christmas has come and gone, and we hope you had a great time with family and friends. We're back home after a four-day tour of northern Iowa that included four Christmas gatherings. The photo above is from Christmas Eve at Kelsey's hometown church - we hope to make it an annual tradition to take a photo each year on Christmas Eve. Rooney is wearing the same dress that Kelsey wore for Christmas when she was 15 months old.

We wanted to let you know that we're taking the rest of the week off from posting, but be assured that we will be back next week. There are a few things we would like to share with you...

1. A Words of Williams Newsletter

We're starting an email newsletter this year and would love for you to get in on the fun. We'll be sharing a little more of ourselves as well as giving some special updates along the way that won't be on the blog. Sign up here if you're interested!

Random question: What was the best gift you gave someone else this year? Mine is a toss up between a remote controlled helicopter and a shirt from Raygun.
