Us getting ready to have communion

Well, a lot has happened since I last blogged...we had a great Christmas in Virginia and then in Indy. We had some fun times with our families and made some good memories. It was nice to get back home though and sleep in my own bed and be back to a somewhat normal life! I put a ton of pictures in my family album, so if you'd like to see some of our Christmas festivities....enjoy! Here's a few pics of family...Hope everyone had a great Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

Christmas Vacation....

We're leaving tomorrow afternoon for our LONG drive to Virginia! We decided to split up the trip by driving some after Ronnie gets off work tomorrow and spending the night somewhere and driving the rest on Friday.

I've been making oatmeal/chocolate chip cookies this afternoon for our board members and their wives. Tonight is our FUEL Christmas party. Thank goodness it didn't get canceled because it took forever to decorate the room! We're having chicken strips from Chick-Fil-A!! We got an awesome deal - buy one tray get another free so we get 4 trays for the price of 2!!!

Tonight I have to finish any laundry we have and get packed up tomorrow to leave. I probably won't be able to blog again for a while, so I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!!!!!

Christmas program

The boy's toddler class sang three songs yesterday in church service. Their favorite of course was "Jingle Bells." And they both got to be little lambs in the manger scene. Aren't they adorable???

Early Christmas

This morning we had Christmas with the boys early b/c we leave on Friday morning for VA and couldn't do it any other day this week before we left. Josiah woke up this morning and asked, "Is Santa here?" It was raining outside so he thought the noise was reindeer on the roof. So cute! They were so excited to find presents unde the tree this morning and their reactions when they opened thier Christmas presents were priceless. I've never seen them so excited before!! After all the presents were opened we had one left and it was their big surprise...a wii. Josiah says, "We must've had a lot of money to pay for that!" We had been telling him that the wii was too much money and we couldn't get one. It was hilarious! What thrills me the most is their excitement when they open each present! Josiah said, "We must've been on the nice list, not the naughty list!"

This is Josiah's reaction to opening the wii...he's wanted one for a long time!

Josh kept saying, "Oh my goodness! Another present!"

Our snowman

The boys couldn't wait to get out in the snow again today, so we built a small snowman with the snow we had and pulled them around on the sled. They had a blast! Some of their neighbor friends came over to play too!
