|We had a great Christmas, of course. We spent both days, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with our families going several different places but that's what it's all about...sharing God's love with our families.|
This December consisted of:*Anistyn's first Christmas!
*Christmas on the Farm
*Christmas Tree Lane three times!
*Granddaughter Bake Night
*Beautiful Christmas church service
We got the girls lots and lots of BOOKS, a vaccuum, stacking toys, balls, cars, farm animals, outfits, shoes, a piano and a chatter phone.
We went to Del Osso' Farms "Christmas on the Farm" and they had a hill with snow where you could tube down, ice skating, pony rides, pictures with Santa, etc. SUPER FUN but SUPER FREEZING. Tynlee wanting nothing to do with Santa. She kept saying "No!" in the saddest, almost crying, little voice.
Granddaughter bake night at Grandma Darlene's house
Stephen's sister and brother in law and sweet little man came to visit from Washington. Her and her husband are both in the Army.

Christmas service at church
Tynlee & her cousin Lily..pretty girls!
The week before Christmas service, Tynlee sang up on stage for the first time with the kiddos. I couldn't help but shed some tears! She's growing too quickly.
Anistyn's First Christmas
The most beautiful girls in the world :)
Christmas Eve started by going to Stephen's aunts house with the whole Howard clan and opening gifts and of course, grubbing on yummy food!
We ended Christmas Eve over at my sister's house with my side of the family getting spoiled by TONS of gifts from my parents and again, delicious food!!!
Little did we know it was the last food of Grandma Bev's we would ever eat....so sad! :(
My parents got Tynlee a stroller(buggy) for her dolls with the cutest new dolly. A shopping cart full of Melisa and Doug food and some books and clothes. And they got Anistyn TONS and TONS of outfits and a cute Mud Pie dolly.
My parents and their grandbabies...plus 2 on the way!! :) Not me this time!
We all wore our pajamas, it was fun!
Christmas morning after we opened the girls' presents at home, we headed over to my inlaws for Chocolate gravy and more gifts/stockings!
