Christmas in Georgia

We just enjoyed a whole week at Jonathan & Emily's home in Georgia.  We had our family Christmas there.  My Dad wasn't able to come due to work obligations. We sure missed him!  Here are some of our Christmas highlights:

Christmas Eve family service

Opening our Christmas Eve Box (our family tradition). This year's box was similar to last year's.  It contained sugar cones, green frosting, sprinkles & candy all to make Christmas trees.  A movie, popcorn & twizzlers.

Margot enjoyed decorating her tree & taste testing the candy.

Auntie Em & Ella's tree

Opening presents Christmas morning

Lots of dress up with the girls & playing Frozen.

These girls LOVE Grandma

They also LOVE Auntie Em

More playing in the new tent

Walks at the park included many turtle sightings

We were also in GA for Auntie Em's birthday.  

More hugs 

Caught in the act....

The guys also got a round of golf in.

family pictures

We had family pictures taken back in October.  We swapped with some friends; Jake took pictures of their family & they took pictures of us.  It worked out great!  Jake finished editing a few of my favorites just in time to mail our with our Christmas cards.

saying goodbye

Today we sent ‪#‎kboy‬ with all his clothes, toys, a fresh set of box braids (hair day was yesterday) & Christmas presents to go live with a family member here in town. Please pray for him as he transitions yet again (3rd move since June). He was a part of our family for 8 weeks.

We told all three kids at breakfast this morning.  Lily asked us if we would ever see #kboy again.  Jake said we weren't sure, but probably not.  Lily's eyes welled up with tears.

Thankful that "Jesus loves the little children, ALL the children of the world."

we love it when FAMILY comes to visit

I know...I am so far behind....MONTHS! 
Tonight I am doing some catch up and back-dating blog posts.

Thanksgiving - JONATHAN & EMILY came up for Thanksgiving.  We had a great time with them & it was fun for them to meet #kboy.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures.  Here is one picture I snagged/stole from facebook.
Jonathan reading to the girls - so sweet.

Later on that week AUNT ANNA came to visit for a short weekend. We had so much fun & here are some of the highlights!

Playing, acting crazy, playing & more playing.

Riding the Frozen Express at the mall. 
#kboy was along too, but he wasn't quite as excited about Anna & Elsa

Meeting Anna & Elsa and having the girls picture taken with Elsa (thanks, Aunt Anna!).
Check out Ella's pose. This girl cracks us up!

Opening presents - we hit the jackpot on Notre Dame attire!

 Most of all, spending time with Aunt Anna.
