Merry Christmas from our house to yours

We had a very fun time enjoying our family Christmas traditions! We go to the Duke Energy Christmas Train display and the Krohn's Conservatory and outdoor Nativity. This year we added Don Pablos in Newport:)

I hope your Christmas is filled with JOY as we celebrate the birthday of our King!!!

I think this is my blog???

Where have I been? Chasing my tail!!!! We have been so busy! I really need to do just a quick update of our lives.
Christmas time is so exciting! My kids just love it! I have everything except 3 gifts bought. The gifts are wrapped and under the tree.
Since my last post Jacob has started playing basketball. He absolutely loves it and is doing quite well! We have practices every Tuesday evening. His team is the Upward Musketeers. Upward is an awesome group! His cousin Sammy is on his team, that makes it extra fun! These pics are from his first practice.

My mother-in-law, Gloria, celebrated her birthday): The family met a Brio's Italian Restaurant. Her hubby bought her a very pretty watch! We had a great meal and enjoyed being together.
We put up our tree of course, I had trouble getting a good pic in the dark. I love real trees! The kids enjoyed decorating.

Anna had her 9th birthday! We celebrated at her house. Pics are in the Christmas tree album.

We went the Lebanon Horse Christmas parade, it is so beautiful, unfortunately, none of my pictures turned out. It was after dark and all the carriages and horses are lit and decorated for Christmas. They have the parade in the morning too and you can see the horses better, but the night parade is very pretty. My sisters family and our family went together. It was very cold so our seating arrangement was helpful:)


I hosted our annual GNO Christmas. We were so glad Deanna was home from Ireland, we had an exceptionally great time catching up. Without fail I end my time with my wonderful friends having a wonderful memory and a very full stomach:)! Deanna had my name for our gift exchange, she gave me a beautiful candle light from Europe! I need to take a picture of it with the candles burning so you can see it.

The kids loved the snow! They played outside almost 3 hours without stopping! Daddy was with them, which made it fun!


The children had there Christmas program Sunday, they did a great job! Jenna was an angel for the first part and turned into a really cool sheep! Jacob and Nate joined in on the cool surfin' sheep!


Whew!!! What a quick update! Our family is now off to enjoy some wonderful family Christmas traditions. Hopefully a post will follow soon!

Merry Christmas to all of you! Don't forget to make some wonderful memories! Thank you Jesus for this season!
