Merry Christmas!

One of my favorite childhood memories
was setting  this nativity scene up.
Christmas for us, was always during our
annual church camp meeting, and we would
usually celebrate a little early, which of course,
was more than okay with us. ; )

This may be the first year that I didn’t get Christmas cards out.

It gets a little more difficult each year to get these 3 together for a picture…

Tyler is 21 now,

and is currently on a week-long wilderness trip,

along with about 20 friends,

to Colorado.

He bought a big school bus,

which they will camp out in.

I’m sure he’ll have many adventures and loads of fun!

Already, they have stayed in an abandoned RV park,

and found a live bobcat trapped in a cage.

…excited to hear all about it. ; )

I love our family Christmas,

and spending time with my parents and sisters.

We get to spend 2 whole days together,

talking, playing games, and taking pictures. : )

Linessa is 19,

and absolutely loving her freshman year at College of the Ozarks.

She has already made life-long friends,

started a unicycling club,

and wants to go to Nicaragua next year!

I love her <3 for others!

Tanner is 17,

and plays his guitar 24/7,

or at least as much as he possibly can.

I absolutely love to hear him sing and play,

and this has been a dream come true for me.

I can’t believe he will graduate in May!

How is this even possible?!

I looove handmade gifts!

And was SO excited when Tyler made these mugs for all of us!

Can you guess which one is mine? ; )

Wishing you all a wonderful 2015!
