Christmas eve was spent in Radford. We had a great afternoon with my side of the family and then we headed to my Great Uncle's home in Radford for an extended family gathering. Here are our three on Christmas Eve.
Christmas 2015 has been a good one for our family. We have spet lots of time together at home which is a treat for us. We are in the process of remodeling our living room, with new flooring and a new paint job.
This is one of my favorite pictures of Christmas Eve. Hope and Clayton spent a long while on the piano. Clayton has the talent to play by ear and has never taken a formal lesson. He truly has a gift! Hope has been in piano for several months now and is learning to read music. I love their expressions in this picture!!
I am not sure how many more years Hope and David will believe in Santa Claus, so I paused to take a picture Christmas Eve of the cookies that Hope laid out for him. David, Hope and Kelsey had baked for Santa the day before Chirstmas eve, and so they left some of their cookies out for him.
The weather has been so beautiful this Chrismtas that we thought it would be a great idea to head to Dollywood two days after Christmas. It must have been a great idea, because 5 million of our closest friends were also there! Ha! It was sunny and in the 70s-we couldnt have asked for better weather for a family day.
Pos even lasted a full day at Dollywood! We really had a great family day together at Dollywood. Dave certainly loves his Pops.
The year 2015 was a good one for us. David had great UVA appointments which always gives us a big sigh of relief. We spent a lot of time with family including a cruise to the Bahamas that was a blast. Kyle and i served the Lord together in Georgia this past summer on a mission trip, and overall our kids are happy and healthy.
Looking ahead to 216, we are excited for the doors that God has opened when others doors were closed. We always trust in His plan. I am beyond excited to keep teaching preschool and to dig into youth middle school ministry at church. We pray that God will bless you in 2016!!
