Daniel and Kayla Rupp have never put down roots.  Just when our roots start to creep out into the soil, daring to imagine that it is safe, we rip them out of the ground and transplant our family once again.  In the first 8 Christmases of our marriage, we have never put a Christmas tree up in the same living room twice.

Until this year.
This, our 9th Christmas together, we are at the same address we were last year, for the very first time. I'm not quite sure what to make of it.  I think I shall have to change the furniture around or something, for the sake of normalcy.
