Merry Christmas from the Sondahls! 
2007 was a year of milestones and great leaps

Brad did a lot of traveling, including here on a bus (and lots of train riding) in Chicago to visit Forrest and Susa and attend the Chicago Folk Festival (in extremely cold weather).

Birrion completed his college degree with honors.  This was his birthday celebration in March, with customary skier's tan.

Susa and Forrest came to visit and took turns with Birrion practicing leaps in Lake Coeur D'Alene.

In the summer, Althea and Brad took a trip to discover new falls and a cave in nearby Pend O'Reille county Washington.

Forrest took the greatest leap of his life, marrying Susa Stone, thus becoming a new couple, the Stonedahls.
Here Forrest  plunges while Birrion steels himself for the plunge into frigid Lake Superior.

Lake Superior was just that--a superior lake, full of wonderful sights.

But the most extraordinary sight was of these young people making their leaps.

Shortly after the wedding, Brad toured Europe with his mother Marion, such as this scene in Bad Kissengen, a Bavarian spa town of flowers and stately architecture.

Althea's mother, Birdine Samuelson, lived to her 90th birthday in November,
but passed away peacefully soon after.

We are thankful for the support of friends and family throughout the varied events of this year, and are thankful to God for his constant care for us.
Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night.
