We Wish You a Merry Christmas

A few pictures from her Christmas Program last week:

Here’s the sweet girl all dressed up for her big night…

I’ve always loved this pink coat. Her granny (Mario’s mom) found this for her two Christmases ago but it was still a little big last year. This year it fits her just right!

And this is my sweet friend Tina’s two boys. Aren’t they adorable? She also has a baby on the way!


Here is J with a few of her classmates…

And I thought this picture was pretty cute. I love this kid anyway because he is a little cowboy. Always wears his cowboy hat and his family’s Christmas card had a picture of him decked out on his pony standing on their doorstep. It was so cute. I loved his little sport jacket and tie and when I took the picture he leaned over toward Jaiden and smiled.


I was too far away to get a very good picture, but I was able to get closer as they exited the stage.

After the program was over we hurried to one of my coworkers and his wife’s house where we had our annual office Christmas Party. In the past we have always brought a gift and played a little game. This year we tossed out our old tradition for a new and better one. Our office sponsored a couple of families in need and we all brought our gifts that night for a wrapping party! It was really neat.

Thanks Tim & Shelly for opening up your home to us :)


Imagine this: Jeryn found found something to rope with. He also walked away with a nice pair of chaps…compliments of Cody, Tim & Shelly’s sweet little boy that had outgrown them.


We just returned from my parents from an early Christmas with my sister, her family, and my grandparents. We had a wonderful time together. (Hopefully some pictures of that soon). I guess I’m almost all ready for Christmas even though I feel like I’ve still got lots of running around to do. I am so thankful this year for so many things. I pray that you and your families have a great Christmas as you rejoice in the Lord and celebrate the birth of our Savior!

You new tradition is wonderful! Giving is always better than receiving!

Hey! Thanks for posting on my blog! Your family is so beautiful. I hope you had a Merry Christmas.

I love half marathons. It's challenging but it's very attainable and fun. Do you plan on running any more races? I plan on officially starting back in January too. Have a happy new year! It was great hearing from you!
