Heavenly Father, thank you for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ, to earth. We not only celebrate His birth in the manger, but also the reason for His coming -- His death on the cross. We thank You for providing eternal life for each person who will accept His free gift of salvation.

We are so happy tonight. We got to (via webcam) feel like we were with our family tonight, except when we tried to sing Christmas carols. Then it just doesn't work. It's like singing in round without meaning to because there is a delayed voice but it was great anyway. We had Angel on one cam, then Billie, then Christi, then Aunt Karen, all at one time. It was fun. Technology is wonderful! It wasn't as good as being there--but almost. In the morning we can watch them open gifts too.

Danny, Will's cousin, said he will be here around 10 in the morning to spend time with Will on Christmas Day. I went back to the blog about Christmas last year and it was so funny to see all of us waiting for Will's lungs just being goofy. You can go back and check it out if you want. Just click on 2007 on the right side and it will take you there.

Will really worked hard today even though it was dialysis day. He used up all his energy with his exercises and then he had a few hours wait until dialysis. Tonight he was watching TV until we did the webcam. Now he still isn't sleeping, I think he's waiting for the big guy in a red suit to show up. If the weather is cleared up by Friday, Angel and Aaron will come up for a couple of days. That will be so good for Will (and Tom and I too).

It was so good to hear from all of you that sent comments to wish Will a Merry Christmas. He got a big ol' grin on his face. Thank you so much, and any of you that would, please give a shout out to Will on here or on my email

Enjoy the wonderful, joyous day and we want to pray to our God for love and happiness as our gifts to you. God bless and MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE HARBISONS

Will, Merry Christmas !!! My Christmas will happen when you and I are sitting in our room at my house discussing and watching basketball and Donna is waiting on us. I can't wait for that to happen and it will SOON.
We are still celebrating the present the Steinbrenner's gave us. Mark Texiera. As Coach Funkhouser would say "it is a great day to be a Yankee"
You look great in the picture. So does Dr. Tom. Who is the lady next to you ? I think I have seen her before but I can't remember where?
Now I remember where it was. She was in rehab with Donna.
I hope you have a great day and I will see you in a few days. I am coming down as soon as the roads get a little better.
Tom and Terri I hope you have a Merry Christmas. Anyone that gets to spend it with Will can't help but have a Merry Christmas.
See you soon. GO LAKERS (Will, it is our turn).

Merry Christmas to all of you!

It was fun to read about the web cams you are using to keep in touch with all of your family. In my job, we have a lot of parets ask for those cams for our teaching, I always say heck no becuase I am in my PJs, so I am glad that someone uses them.

We love you guys and can't wait to see you home soon.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Joe and Carrie

Merry Christmas family! We hope you all had a great day. What a nice family picture you all take. I think uncle Tom adds a bunch for the group. Ha Ha. Our family had a good Christmas except that we are snowed in or out it just depends on which way you are going. Our road in front of the house to the end of our property is drifted shut. Wyatt and I stuck the big four wheeler trying to go down the road and had to dig it out. It was agood thing that we had all of our shopping done. Love you all very much. The other Mendive's.

Merry Christmas Will (and all those crazy people that hang around you),

We were thinking about you here at SIACH today. It seems kinda quiet around here without all the excitement from your room. Take care.

Love, Tina
