Christmas Day 2014

Christmas Day is a busy one! It starts before dawn as we see what Santa has brought, then off to Grandma and Grandpa Millner's and lastly to the Blooms for dinner and games. We are blessed to be able to spend time with our family making more memories. It is an added bonus that we all live so close.

Church Christmas Program 2014

On the Saturday before Christmas, the kids joined all of the Sunday School children in putting on a performance of songs and readings. The birth of Jesus presented in song and word from kids from age 3 years to 6th grade. The kids are now veterans of this program so knew what to expect. As you can see Dru still needed to see what was going on with the baby. It was cute as always. We lost Dru afterwards at the cookie reception in which the pastor needed to track us down, oh the memories.
