Christmas Date with the Family

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.

The Fog

When I took Abby out this morning I was amazed by what I saw. There was a low fog over the ground. The fog was really pretty over the pond. It was the first time I had seen fog like that.

Lazy Day

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.

Christmas Play time

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.

Snowman village

I had starting collecting snowmen a few Christmas's ago. I have fun hitting the after Christmas sales for the decorations. My favorite type of snowmen are country style.

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

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.
