December Highlights

We had a really busy December, and got to enjoy so many wonderful activities. I just wanted to share some pic highlights:

Scott and Gabe decorating tree.

Gabe visits Santa and gives him his list.

He wanted a list because he gets shy when he is on Santa's lap. It worked!

We had a couple snowstorms this month, we thought for sure we would have a white Christmas this year... Here is Gabe with his new snow shovel, helping Daddy.

Gabe and Bella our neighbor girl enjoy a snowball fight.

We got to go to the Alum Creek Light Tour for the first time, this is a Santa Pirate Ship.

The light displays were amazing, several even went over the road as you drive through.

We made it to the Care Train concert again, it was wonderful!

We also enjoyed a Sunday of  Gingerbread and cookie creating at Grandma's house. Here is Gabe with his cousins.

Gabe and I created this Gingerbread Train, Gabe mostly just ate the candy.

Grandma and Gabe working on cookies.

Finished product!
Our annual Christmas photo was tougher to schedule this year, but we worked it out. I Love how it turned out!

Those are just some highlights, other activities were captured on Scotts phone camera and I don't have those uploaded yet. They will all make it into my December Daily album. I will be back soon to share Christmas and Christmas Eve.               May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13
