To Our Dearest Family and Friends, Deqlans Army,

We wish you the most beautiful, Blessed, treasured Christmas ever. May you celebrate the true meaning of the birth of Our Lord and Savior.


Nanna, Meggie and I shall be attending midnight mass tonight to start the celebrations, I cant wait, wait an amazing mass this is going to be. What an honor to start the celebrations off where they first began, with Jesus.

Our presents this year, where recieved in the form of your love, support, encouragement, motivation and above all prayers. Thank you to you all for walking every step of this way with us , we are Blessed to have in our army!

Mark and my greatest gift is not wrapped in paper this year, but wrapped in our arms, our beautiful, gentle, courageous, strong, beautiful Deqlan whom who love beyond description . What a gift it is to have him on the road to great health. To see how he has recovered from his surgery so well, that he is running around and laughing and playing and enjoying himself to the max. What an inspiration he is to us, what a miracle. What a privilige it is to be his parents.

Logs, our beautiful sunshine, i miss you more then you can imagine this year. It is the first year we are not together at Christmas time. But, i can promise you big girl, that next year we are going to all be celebrating together - even though we not with you in body, we are always with you in thought and always in your heart. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas day, and always know how proud we are of you, what a blessing you are to us and how much we love you!

We are going to be spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with Nanna and Grandpa and are very priviliged to have Great Nan join us this year as Great Grandpa has arranged to bring her home for Christmas lunch! Nanna goes ALL OUT to ensure everything is just perfect, and is we speak she is whizzing round the shops gathering the last ingredients for the delicous feast she is about to prepare.

Please say an extra special prayer for all our friends fighting this neuroblastoma war - there are some spending their Christmas at the hospital, but we pray Dear Lord Jesus to fill their hearts with love, hope and peace and that they to have an unforgettable Christmas, please continue to Bless and Heal them, please comfort their families and friends.

Thank you Dear Lord Jesus for all you have done and all you continue to do for our beautiful Deqlan and our family - i dont know where in the world i would be without YOU. All the glory and honor to YOU Dear Lord.

Have a Very Merry Christmas and the best year ever ahead in 2008.

Our Little soldier is doing just great and I cant wait to celebrate with him! Promise to post more on what he has been up to in the next few days but had to make sure our Christmas Message went out in time!

Gods Richest Blessings at Christmas time and always

All our Love

Mark, Samm, Deqlan and Logan
