Self Family Letter Christmas 2015


It seems each year gets busier than the one before. How can this be? Maybe because our family keeps expanding! Here are our highlights.

March 2015, Harvey & I celebrated our 35th Anniversary a bit early. We spent an absolutely wonderful week in Barbados being wined and dined by our brothers-in-law. There aren’t enough superlatives in the English language to describe how amazing our visit was, or enough ways to say thank you.

May 3, 2015 Our newest granddaughter joined Allan & Natalie’s family to make Five Little Selfs in one little house. That she arrived the day after Allan received his Masters of Theological Studies only added to the excitement.  Our baby is a delightful little bundle of sleepless giggles. She is adored by all.

June 10, 2015 Jon graduated from the University of Waterloo. He sandwiched the big event between his return from Burkina Faso and two months touring Europe. This fall he began working for Free the Children’s We Day Events and living in Toronto. We’re glad to have him so close.

October 1, 2015 Bec received her Canadian permanent residency. What a relief for us all who feared Jamie might be forced to follow her back to Australia if it didn’t come through. But it did! Jamie & Bec celebrated with a sunny & warm month long vacation down under.

And so, from our household to yours, may you have a wonderful Christmas full of joy, peace & love and a blessed new year. All our love, Harvey & Jayne

Now for the photo spread! Harvey & I in Barbados. Jon in Paris. Allan receives his hood. Jamie & Bec receive their good news. (No kids shots this year. Gotta keep our little ones safe.)
