What a wonderful Christmas we had! It is hard to believe it is over, but we are grateful for a new year full of new blessings to come! We had a wonderful Christmas season and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. I was soo excited about the White Christmas and it was Nashville's first since 1993. More pics to come, but here are a few!

We have had a great December so far! We enjoyed a Preds game & yummy dinner at Mama Mia's with Leah and Luke, time with friends and this past weekend we went to Chattanooga to see Chris and Liz! It was a blast! Chris got a job there working for a law firm and Lizzy is a 5th grade teacher at Nolan elementary. They are really liking Chattanooga and it was so fun to be in their world for a few days! We are so thankful for them. Hope you are all having a wonderful December so far full of family, friends and festivities! Much LOVE!

Mrs. Crafty

I used to be so crafty. I was all into scrapbooking, collages, and anything that could use my creative outlet. I hope I start over when we have kids, because I miss doing all that stuff. I found this page in a magazine and wanted to try to re-create it! I thought you might want to do the same. Thanks to Cass for helping me make it look so pretty!!

All you need is a:
REAL wreath
florist's wire
frame (I used 4x6)

HAPPY DECEMBER!!!! SOO excited for my favorite time of the year!!!

New Friends

One of the things we are most grateful for is our new Sunday school class. We have met some awesome couples who love each other and the Lord and it has really been such a blessing to us. We had a get together a few weeks ago and it was so much fun. We are hosting the Christmas party in a few weeks at our house and are really excited about that.

This is such a special week, a time to reflect on the past year and to be grateful for the year to come. I am constantly amazed and humbled by the many blessings in life. Even when I can't understand exactly what is going on in day to day life, I trust there is a God who is much greater than I could ever understand. "Give THANKS to the Lord, his LOVE endures forever!!!"

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving with the people you love the most! We love you all!

My FAVORITE time of the year is coming! I am sooo excited! I wish that it was Christmas all year round! I love Thanksgiving too and I am so thankful for a few days off next week. Work has been crazy and I am needing a vacation!
As for Christmas gifts, Mattie and I are giving each other a new computer for Christmas which is great! I am so excited! After the new year hopefully I will have a bunch of cool new tricks with my computer!

Summer Fun~

I am soo happy that fall is almost here! I am ready for this heat to end and for us to be able to enjoy the cooler weather. I don't think I have gotten to announce it yet, but my Rooms (Evie) is pregnant!! She is due March 17th and I am soo happy for her! She finds out this coming Friday what she is having and I can't wait to hear!

We went to Destin last week with Steve and Susan and had a great time! It was so fun to be back in Destin and truly felt like going home. I have so many wonderful memories from summers down there and it was nice to get back there. We ate many wonderful meals and got to relax by the beach and pool, which was much needed. Thanks to S & S for a wonderful 5 days!!!!

This coming weekend is Mattie's half iron man in Augusta! I can't believe that it is finally here!!!! Please pray for him on Sunday as he starts the race early in the morning!

Last but not least, we went to a new Sunday School class today that we both really enjoyed! We have been praying for some time that we would find a Sunday school class with young couples who are just starting to have kids or recently married & truly feel like our prayers have been answered. So thankful!

We had the BEST trip to Charleston. I seriously loved every second and M and I got to spend a lot of QT together which these days is rare. It's so hard because we both have such crazy schedules so we have to work at getting to see each other. We LOVED Isle of Palms (where we stayed) and can't wait to go back. We feel like thats our "place" :) Charleston was amazing too and we spent all day Thursday there. We took a carriage ride and were true tourists (which you know I spent many times asking.. "would you mind taking our picture??" -- annoying.) I need a tripod for life. Anywho... It was wonderful and such a nice break from it all. Love my Mattie (which I know I have already made that clear.. ) :0 XOXO
