December was a fun and busy month! Josh took me to a nice Italian restaurant for my 25th birthday and to hear Keith & Kristyn Getty in Dallas! Ethan received his first car from Nana & Pops. We hosted a C3 Toy Drive at church and were so excited to be able to help twenty-five children have Christmas presents to open. Two families also visited church as a result of the toy drive. Our new friends Chad & Emily Nations hosted a lovely Christmas party, and we enjoyed the annual parade with the Jones & Allan families.
Then we went to North Carolina to celebrate Christmas with our parents and to say goodbye to my Granddaddy. It was definitely a sad and different Christmas this year without him sitting in his chair with his big jolly grin, but I'm so glad that God gives joy despite our circumstances. Granddaddy is well and not fighting cancer anymore and that is something to be thankful for. Knowing I'll see the twinkle in his eyes again brings even more joy!
We closed out the year quietly with our family of three and a nice New Year's Eve feast...prepared mostly by wonderful husband.
