We had a Christmas Party with our Sunday School Class this year. It was held over at the Camp's house. They were very kind in letting 28 people come and eat at there home. We exchanged white elephant gifts as well. Also this year we adopted Josh and Amy Bowman. They are missionaries serving in Zambia. They have four children and were raised at First Baptist Church. Many of you may know them from back in middle and high school. So basically what the class is doing, is trying to provide them with items that they are in need of. We will be keeping in touch with them throughout the year and sending them things all year long, not just at Christmas time. Please pray for the class and that the hearts of our Sunday School Class members will be touched and we will be able to provide them with everything they have asked for.

This year for Thanksgiving we went to Krysten's parents house in the morning. We helped cook and ate a wonderful lunch. Then at about 2:30 we left to go to Gus' Grandparents house. We had a little bit of time before they were going to eat so we were very thankful our food had time to settle before we had to eat again. We ate around 6 with his family and then visited for a while. It was a long day but we are very thankful to have been able to share Thanks with our families. We pray everyone had a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving.

Our Trip to Savannah

We ate at the Lady's and Sons restaurant on Tuesday for lunch.. We were not disappointed at all. It was very, very good!

We parked our car the day we got there and walked everywhere. It was nice being close to everything and in walking distance to the hotel, restaurants, and shopping.
The Old Pink House. This is where we had a very nice dinner on Monday night. The place had wonderful food!!
The hotel
We decided to play checkers, and of course, Gus won!!
The Lobby
In the elevator...
This was the Marshall House. It was a school back in the mid to late 1900's and was redone into an Inn in 1999. This is where we stayed.

Our Room

Gus took the week of Thanksgiving off this year. Which we were very happy he was going to be able to do. He was in need of a vacation. This would be the first vacation for him this year. So he decided to have my sister watch Ethan for us on Monday and Tuesday. He wanted to take me on a mini vacation, which he called babymoon, before the next baby arrives. So we went to Savannah, and had a wonderful, relaxing time...And the weather was beautiful.

Ethan's Big Boy Hair Cut

The hair is gone!! We decided it was time for Ethan to get a big boy hair cut. He was very good for the stylist and surprisingly he sat really still. It was one of the big steps to being a big boy that he is taking to prepare for the new arrival of the baby. Well at least we pray all the things we are doing will help. We will see!!

Putting Up the Christmas Tree

The finished Tree

Here we are putting the Christmas Tree up early this year. We wanted to enjoy it longer then we usually do so thanks to Gus and his idea we decided to put it up one evening.

Fall Festival at Hilliard

Brittany and Carson
So tired, no nap, he looks so worn out
The lake at Hilliard
We were both not paying attention to the camera, I guess
On our way back from the hay ride we saw the guys playing football.
Brittany and Carson- They came out to spend the afternoon with us

Revelation 4:11

"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being."
Revelation 4:11
