Christmas Eve!


 Mom always does such pretty tables!

 Laying out the spread for Christmas Eve dinner!

 Nick & Jake W from church came over -- it was so very nice to have them!

 Kathryn cuddled up on her daddy and fell asleep! :) Cutie!
 She really enjoyed opening presents! :)

 I laid my gifts out, then slipped upstairs to bed with a merry heart...
I really liked the wrapping I used this year! ;)

Next: Christmas Day!

 Friday evening, we attended the viewing for a family friend who suddenly passed away. :(

 The next day, we attended her funeral. Our prayers are with her family in this terribly, terribly difficult time.

 Mrs. B -- so sweet to get to talk to her!
 A fun little baby!

 Daddy's home this week (what FUN!), and is doing some very needed work on our bathroom -- replacing the shower & surrounding drywall!
 We sure are grateful for this great guy!
A darling letter in the mail from a friend... so many fun & merry letters in our mailbox in this wonderful season!
