Parade and early Christmas

Last week we loaded the kids up in their wagon and trotted down to Broad street to watch the Christmas parade. We live right off Broad street and some of the floats line up on the street beside our house, so for 2 hours before the parade we had all kinds of floats and fire trucks and policemen going by our house. It was fun to see the kids so excited! Since we live within 100 feet of the parade route we had lots of our friends come and park at our house and walk with us to watch the parade. That was even more exciting for the kids since they had lots of their little buddies to party with! It turned out to be a very cold night so we bundled and double bundled the little munchkins but they didn't mind, they were just happy to be watching the parade!


Then last weekend we headed up to Middle GA, again, to go to a church meeting and celebrate an early Christmas with my daddy and Nelda. It was lots of fun, crazy, but lots of fun! Audrey came down with some sort of stomach virus on the way to Betsy's from church Friday night and vomited 4 times in the van. (Really good excuse for me to have the van washed, inside and out!) She ran a fever most of the day Saturday but by the night time she was fine, you'd never of known she was sick. On Sunday me and my kids went up to Mt. Zion to pick up Jon and spend a little time with old friends. What a joy it was to get to see everyone again! After church we headed back to Betsy's and proceeded to have probably the fastest present exchange EVER because Buddy had a preaching appointment and had to leave at 4:30 and Jon and I needed to get on the road by 5 to make it home at a semi-decent hour. Daddy was preaching at Cool Springs again that evening so we all left him and Nelda there in a whirlwind of wrapping paper and bows but with lots of happy memories! When you got 3 preachers in the fam, you have to take what you can get!

The parade wagon was so cute. Almost shivered at the tho't of how cold it would've been. Oh, the GIRLS! Audrey and Hannah in the picture with James and Matthew. The boys looked like boys, about to go into a huddle on the football field...the girls...OH THE GIRLS! Hannah was stylin' and Audrey so sweetly posing in her girly-girl dress ups. What a hurried up week-end you all had. LOTS of grounds covered and I speak for all of us at Mt. Zion, we were DELIGHTED to have the WHOLE family back in our sanctuary once again. Love you all and ever ask God's blessings on you.

Looks like the parade was loads of fun! What's up with the bruise on J's forehead? Can't I count on y'all for ANYTHING?
