Christmas Memories

Happy New Year to all of you!

We had a wonderful two weeks of Christmas festivities. The month started out very snowy and the following pictures are of our early December snow storm. We were at Mom Benedict's trying out a 4 wheel drive car that I was test driving but it couldn't handle the deep snow and Tom had to get the tractor out to pull me out.

On Christmas Day the Benedict family came to our place-actually the community room at our condo for our meal together. It really worked well because there was lots of room for all of us. This is our family with Mom Benedict.

The month has been snowy and cold. I took this picture out front of our condo.

We celebrated with our church family with a potluck meal and lots of games and fun. This was the Saturday before Christmas. We are attending Faith Bible Church of Alto and love the close fellowship and the opportunity to serve there.

On the Sunday before Christmas, our children presented a Nativity scene for us. It set such a wonderful tone for the service.

Our four grandkids were in a wonderful Christmas program at First Baptist Church of Middleville. All four had parts and we enjoyed every minute. Madelynn and Jack had solos and Jay and Anna were in the choir for back-up.


Christmas morning we all went over to Tom and Sherry's for the Benedict breakfast that always included Eggs Benedict. The girls got new outfits for their American Girl dolls from Great-Grandma and Grandpa Hoath.


Last week, we all went to Meijer Gardens to see Christmas Trees from Around the World and then capped it off with ice cream at Culvers.

Kristen and Eric were able to get enough time off work too come home for Christmas. I know it was a lots of traveling for a few days but it made for such a great Christmas for Tom and I. Jen had 2 weeks off school. She returned to North Carolina yesterday. I'm going back to work this week too. I feel so blessed and I'm looking forward to 2010 and the memories we will be creating.
