Christmas 2009

I've been reading your Christmas stories and enjoying seeing all of your Christmas photos.

What a joy we had spending time with family and enjoying each others company.

Christmas Morning:

Our stocking pile keeps growing every year. This year we added a stocking for Ethan and Andrew.

 The boys opening their stockings.

 Andy and Crystal. Married for 6 months now.

Andrew and Eryn. 

 Elijah showing us his new book from Grandma.

 And his cowboy hat from Uncle Andrew.

Eryn liked the new Casting Crowns CD she got from Andrew.

 Geoff looking at the photo book I gave him.

 Geoff's gift to Elijah was a bow. He loved it!

 These photos and frames are a special gift from Eryn and her family. They are photos of the old barn on my Grandma's farm in New York. The farm my dad grew up on. The frames are made from wood from the barn.

Ethan opening a gift from Nana and Granda Charlie.

 Sweet Anna.
 My Aunt, Uncle, Sara and Anna, Grammy came for Christmas dinner.

Daddy and Elijah tested out his bow.


 Good job, Elijah!

 Sara and Uncle Tom giving it a try.

 Let's eat!

What a neat gift for your parents from Eryn and her family. Did they know your family in NY?

Glad you had such a special day.

Aunt Deanna, Eryn's family have meet Grandma. Andrew and Eryn stopped at Grandma's on their way to Word of Life in NY. So that's when Eryn's mom got the barn wood and photos.

Oh my word Melissa! I LOVE those picture frames made out of the barn. How cool is that? Very clever! It makes me want to go to the barn where my Mom lived when she was little and ask the people if I could find an old board in there! Really cool! I loved your pictures of the day. They were perfect!

The Max Lucado book for Elijah looks great. My boys always liked Max Lucado's books. I think we have all of the Wemmick books.

Also, what a great gift for your Dad and mom. That's so special.

Looks like you all had a great Christmas, too.

I'm sorry that Ethan isn't feeling very well. I'll be praying for him.
