When you are everything to everyone, well, you had better act like you have it all together.

December in a giant nutshell...

December is always an event-filled month.  

This year we had numerous choir concerts with Jolie's audition group called Encore.  It is always fun to see kids excel at something they love!  It is even more fun that she gets to share that time with her friends.

 Asher is playing the trumpet in his school's band.  (He takes after his cousin Cody.)  We went to his first concert as well.  It was really good!

 We also went to visit Matt's Grandmother and Popper.  It was a bitter-sweet visit as they are moving to another home in 2016.  They have been in their current home 40 years.  It is hard to imagine them anywhere else. 
 Popper is 90 and in great shape!  But it is still hard to care for a big yard and home.  So they are moving to be closer to their daughters.  We are happy for that.

 But sad too because they will be further away.  We won't be able to see this laugh as often as before

 We won't get to hear as many stories or get as many hugs.

  But when we do, we will treasure them even more.

 Levi and Micah are ready for Christmas!!

 This year we decide to follow the Advent with our own twist.  It was beautiful and meaningful.  We will do it again.

 We also got a visit from my sweet nephew Ryder.  

He was a joy!

 Then there were the parties.  So many parties!

 Little sister got to go and was thrilled!!

This sweet guy has a heart of joy.  He loves life and shows it!

 His little face just radiates his emotion.

 It makes me happy.

 December also brought in a little blizzard.  It was what the kids had been waiting for!  So much fun!

We are truly blessed.  We pray that your December was memorable.  Praying health, happiness and growing in the Lord in 2016.
