We went out to eat with David's brother and sisters. We had such a great time. It's not very often that we can get together. The siblings all joked and laughed about things that had happen while they were growing up and things that their parents had done.
Last night we had ice storm that had hit our state. I was finishing up my Christmas shopping yesterday around noon when it starting coming down. It makes me nervous to drive on ice. I can handle driving on snow better. I picked the kids up from school and got home as quick as I could. Sarah was out of school today and she will be out again tomorrow. She is enjoying being out of school. The school was scheduled to get out early on Thursday and Friday, but now she will have to go all day. Since the school was closed that meant Preston wasn't having his play tonight. It had been rescheduled till after the Christmas holidays. I was looking forward to seeing the play.
I was tried of being in the house, so I went out and took some pictures.
This is the first of three Christmas Plays. Sarah had hers first last night at her school, Conway Christian. The choir did a great job and I was very proud of Sarah. Some of them did sign language along with the songs. There were a few incidents during the play. The little girl standing next Sarah in the first picture had fainted. It was very quick, she fell of the stage and had cut her chin. Her parents took her the emergency room. She was going to be find, but was going to need stitches in her chin. Another girl on the opposite end from Sarah had turn around and vomit. Bless her heart she wiped her mouth and went back to singing, but started to vomit again and her Mom rushed up to get her. Then the last one was another girl that felt light headed and had to sit down. I think that everyone was nervous and of course it was warm in the gym. I was worried about Sarah because she is hot nature and her cheeks were very red. The only thing she complain about was the her feet hurt from standing in high heels for so long. Hopefully our next one won't be as exciting.
David and the kids got out the Christmas decorations while I was at a bridal shower. Joshua and Sarah did most of the work putting up our tree. I love snowmen and rabbits, so at Christmas I get to pull out all the snowmen. What fun! Oh, did I tell that my favorite color is blue, all shades.
This was Kayla's first Thanksgiving. I was so excited that she was feeling a lot better. She was sick for a week with a stomach bug. Bless her heart she had lost a pound while being sick, so she is now at 14lbs.
David and I had four of our grandkids over this year. Zoey and Preston always does something silly when they are in a picture. Jason's niece came over too. Her name is Shaw, she is a very sweet girl.
This year I tried something different for dressing. I found a recipe for crock-pot dressing in a cook book that our church had put out. It turned out delicious. David and the kids bragged on it, so I will be making it again for them.
I started my cooking on Wednesday this year and finish up right on time. We had some of the kids over this year. It was great sitting down to dinner with them and just having a good time. I had dressed up our formal table and I think that I had done a pretty good job. David and Lydia was impressed. The kids sat at breakfast table. Which Sarah thought she was to old to sit with the little kids, but she was having a good time with Dalton. So she got over it quick.
My husband David and I have been happily married for 26 years. After 20 years, we closed the doors on our construction business and went full time in the ministry. My husband is a pastor of a small but wonderful country church. I'm blessed to work along aside of him and trying to be a blessing to others.
This blog is meant to give my family and friends updates on our little family. Even though life tends keep us very busy, my message is to let each and everyone of you know that we are thinking about you.
