So many Christmas memories...

We have been so very blessed to have wonderful families to share our holiday season with...We made lasting memories once again. We tried to capture the "moments" in pictures, but some memories will just stay in our hearts forever! (Thanks to all of our family members that made Christmas extra special for us...We love you ALL and are thankful that you are in our lives!) Thought that I would share some of our Christmas fun with you... my blogging friends. Hope that you all had a memorable Christmas!

Enjoying the holidays...

We are SO in the Christmas spirit around our house(with the exception of the flu bug that hit us!)....WE have been up to lots of holiday fun...decorating, baking, parties, shopping, visiting with friends and family....I enjoy it all!
I always "catch" the spirit of Christmas at the annual church ladies' Christmas party, hosted at Mother's beautifully decorated house...Everything sparkles and glows there(a tree in EVERY room, mind you!)and you leave feeling festive! I enjoy helping her out by doing some holiday baking. Sis Melba Sams(our dear Conference President's wife) gave us a wonderful devotional and we ladies bonded over fun, food and fellowship!

Then several of our friends and family members went to a Gaither Homecoming concert where there was Christmas in the air....from the beautiful Christmas songs that were sung to the lovely snowfall that fell that evening...it was a perfect night out!
There was Corey and Cassie's Christmas piano recital...they did a great job! I love hearing their beautiful piano renditions at this time of the year!

We also celebrated my nephew, Nathan's, 21st birthday....a special milestone for a special young man!

Our church celebrated Christmas on Sunday...Those pics will probably show up on the church website soon! We had a wonderful day!
We have some more fun things planned....a Christmas fieldtrip for the kids, more parties and celebrations , but thought that I would share a few pictures! Don't forget the REAL "Reason for the Season"! God is SO good!
