Merry Christmas!

I think this was probably the best Christmas I have had in a long time. It wasn’t that we got better gifts, or anything like that. It was that I actually was in the Christmas spirit,and enjoyed spending this time with my family. It was so nice being surrounded by family. I hope you and your family had a blessed Christmas!

We LOVE getting together at Granny and Papa’s( Corey’s grandparents) for the Christmas Party. I think there were about 60 of us this year. It is a great way to kick off the holidays!

Below are some of the great grand kids. I think 11 were missing.

“Back to the Manger” was performed by our children’s choir at church. Zoe sang a solo,and was WONDERFUL! Noah was in the “boy band” ,and did a great job too! I am so proud of all of the kids for spreading the true meaning of CHRISTmas!
