Merry Christmas

Guadalajara_and_North Dakota are worlds apart.  Today the distance shrinks.  In Mexico and at home, love abounds, family is primary, and somehow snow is nowhere to be found.  May you all find joy and love with your family this Christmas Day and reflect on that rare blessing that you possess in the company of your loved ones.  Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas to you!! It seems much of your family is having a “nontraditional” Christmas. We sent lutefisk and lefse, mashed potatoes, and gjetost cheese over to your grandpa. Amanda delivered it in her stocking feet! (And later Luke was outside barefoot). Your grandparents sure are proud of you (as well they should be) and love to share your stories. Continued blessings and divine protection on your journey!

    Merry Christmas guys! I like you Mexico flag themed tire. Very creative! Are you sure that it’s not increasing wind resistance?

    • Thanks, Paul! That is exactly what it is doing. Mexican authorities have pulled us over multiple times for speeding, so we needed to increase our drag. The parachutes weren’t enough, so we resorted to festive pipe cleaners.

        Hello. Well what a joy to see what some good Starkweather boys are up to! I am so proud of you – good going! Doug and I prayed for you as soon as we got your parents christmas letter (today). It chokes me up to say the least. We were praying for your safety today but will also pray for wisdom and Joy along the way.
        We’ll share your adventures with our church family! Love, Doug and Sally Johnson Psalm 73:25-28 “…but as for me the nearness of God is my good”.
        (you may not know us) – I (Sally) was raised a farm girl north of Starkweather and loved that country – still do even tho I’ve been far from home so many yrs but still where I live becomes a new favorite, not losing my love for each place i’ve lived and the closeness with family and friends I make along the way.

    A beautiful christmas message. My friend from Devils Lake sent me some Lefse for Christmas.It was interesting, but I think I prefer Pizza, but not the one you had at our place. Be careful and enjoy your trip South.

    I guess I should add something to “good starkweather boys” – it doesn’t seem quite right 🙂 incredibly awesome ingenious and adventuresome fits better :). Blessings on your adventures! Doug & Sally
