(I'm trying to be faithful to post my Days of Christmas, but between trying to fight off an infection, having a houseful of family that left yesterday morning,( which we LOVED having) and then having 46 of us last night from our church for a wintery gathering at Our House...I've had a hard time posting on time. =) So...Finally...here are that last 3 days. =)
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
We invited friends to come over to be with Dad and Mom D. and Michael and Beth and our family the Friday night of the GBS Christmas program, Dec. 6th. With the SNOW 2 families couldn't make it. (We missed y'all Trint and Janette, and U. Nate and A. Alberta. )
We were GLAD for the ones that could. (Thanks for sliding your way to be with us...David and Roseanne, and Mr. Jim and Mrs. Lila!!)
We had a very fun time and there were LOTS of yummy snacks to go around. =)
~I had asked my father-in-law and my sweetheart if they could cut a piece of fiberglass to lay on the top of our old gas stove, so I could serve drinks there, yet you could still see the neat stove.
Phillip didn't have the right kind of cutter, but my b-i-l Michael did. =) THANK YOU, DEAR MICHAEL, for cutting that for me. I added some cranberries and lime slices to water...to make a Christmasy effect.~
The girls, Grandpa, Phillip, and I made the Oreo cookie pops and I displayed them in a styrofoam Christmas tree. =) ~
Bro. Manly dedicated little Joshua and did a great job.
Michael asked Phillip and I to sing for the dedication...and I wept my way through the song, "We're building Temples for Jesus to live in."
~Our church Christmas dinner was at the Receptions hall in Loveland. It was beautiful and so YUMMY! Here are the Christmas cakes that we enjoyed.~
(We literally invited our ENTIRE church body of CNC to come to our house for a Winter Gathering Last evening.
I knew that not everyone would be able to show up, but was HAPPY with those who could. Like I said there were 46 or so of us. Pics coming on another "Day of Christmas" post. =)
Last night while we were preparing for our guests to come from Church I yelled up the stairs and asked my Sarah to please come and get her rain boots that Jesus helped her to find at Goodwill.
Then an idea popped into my idea.
They are SO CUTE...why not decorate with them. =)
So here is our entry way.~
I trust that each of you are having a very Merry Christmas season.~
