Well it is Christmas again and we in the Mundy family have tried to come up with an original and entertaining concept for a Christmas card. It semms to get harder and harder to come up with a new idea. This one we thought about for several months and we called Tyler another time to put his graphic talents to work to bring my vision to fruition.

My daughter's much anticipated day has come and gone. This past cold December weekend, my daughter was married to Jeff Harris for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple. It was wonderful to take part in, though I look a bit relaxed with my hand in my pocket in most of the photos. Elder D. Todd Christofferson, of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles officiated as the sealer, so that was very memorable for the young couple. Elder Christofferson had been our stake president when we were living in Nashville, TN--about the time Ingrid was born.
It was a great family get-together as well. Tyler was able to join us in the Temple and he, Dylan, Jesse and Heidi helped make the reception come off well. My sister, Janna, with her husband, Marty, flew in from Texas to join us in the Temple and my son, Jesse, came out from Topeka Kansas, with his girlfriend, Amanda, to attend the reception. There were also various cousins in attendance. Karen's sisters Connie and Becky were there with one of Becky's sons, Jacob. Karen's brothers Derek and Terry were there with their wives and a couple of their married kids--Derek's daughter, Kathryn, was kind enough to be the photographer. Jeff's family in Florida were unable to attend but he had a few close friends there.
We had plenty of cake and chocolate from the fountain left over to find a home for after the fact. All the the family who were there helped tear down and clean up and we all went to bed tired. Family members who traveled in took off the next day and the new Mr. and Mrs. Harris drove back to their home in Aurora Colorado to prepare for their honeymoon in the Bahamas. One down and four to go.
