Wow, I guess I took an unintentional bloggy break! December was super busy around here, but very peaceful. The kids in our church put on their 3rd annual Christmas Story nativity play. They always do such a good job! This year Dancerella was Mary, Little Prince was a shepherd, Sassyfrass was an angel and Sweetpea filled in for Baby Jesus. (A big Thank You to Donna & Kelli for the beautiful pics.) [My adorable nephew is Joseph, and the other two in the 2nd shepherd pic are Javamama’s cuties.]
My sister and her gang came up for the week after Christmas, and my uncle, aunt & cousin popped in for the weekend. Our house was full of love and laughter!
Our year ended on a bittersweet note as my good friend Javamama and her family packed up and moved away. God called them to serve Him and they gladly, though tearfully, obeyed. We had an emotional last Sunday of blessings and goodbyes. Thank you God for Facebook (I’m not kidding!).
Expresso, Javamama, Superman, T-Rex and Butterfly:
WE LOVE YOU AND WE MISS YOU!!
I am looking forward to this new year as I make new plans and try new things. I want to be the wife and mother that God has designed me to be, not the poor imitation that I’ve tried to create.
MAY YOU AND YOURS HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR!
