Tidings Of Joy

December was the busiest and most festive month ever. All the traditions we have started with Henry, plus adding new activites into the mix, made for a whirlwind of fun. We took our 6th annual trip to the lights of the Delta and then drove Into Missouri to see a light display on a house that was all over our local news. It's always a fun, predictable outing, that includes eating in a booth at Perkins. Ahh, and if you REALLY know Randall and me, you know Perkins is where it's at! ;) I miss eating the salad bread bowls and I always think of Meemaw and her love for that apricot syrup. 

We walked in the parade with the Pregnancy Resource Center. I serve on the board and we were so thrilled to drive our new mobile ultrasound unit in the parade. It will go into outlying areas and serve women who otherwise would not have access to a Center....and save babies! We walked behind it and waved at people. 

Henry had a field trip to a Christmas program at the Library. He got to ride on a school bus. That's always the best part. Watching Mama drive off in her car....that's the tough part. 

Henry had a fun snowman themed school party. We adore his teachers and all his new found friends. 

A quick visit from this beauty and her entire crew was the icing on the Christmas cake. They came to see me perform The Grinch in our church Christmas musical and help me take care of Henry that day since Randall was in Iowa that weekend. 

And of course I can't leave out our Sunday School Christmas party was at our house and it was a fun time playing minute to win it games. We are so blessed by our friends at church. It's so nice to serve and grow with a fun group of folks. 

I've decided To save our most festive event/outing of the season for another involves Santa, pajamas and a train...hmmm?! 

It may take me the whole month of January to cover Christmas. I have several posts left to write detailing our wonderful celebration with family and friends.
