Christmas 2011

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. It was a joy to celebrate our Lord's birth, and see family and friends that we don't see very often. We are very blessed!

This was taken at a Christmas service at Riverbend on Friday night. This really helped us focus on the birth of Christ.

Caleb, Catherine, and their sweet little daughter, Jennings.

This is our cousin, Caden, who is recovering from leukemia. He is cancer free--Glory to God!!

I love Christmas and my family!!

The Tillman family--well, most of them.

Mari Morgan loves her new American doll, Kanani

Nathan's big gift from JoJo and Pop--Xbox 360

Jennings with her popper lawn mower--she is almost walking

Mari Morgan and Nathan go with Pop every year to pick out a real tree. They have very high ceilings, so they always get the tallest tree they can find.

My mom gave him games for his Xbox

Barbie toys are always good.

My mom and my nephew, Banks

My sweetie and me

Aren't they cute?

Sofie and the kiddos

Sofie--just turned 1

One of the highlights of our Christmas break was traveling to North Carolina. We have many friends there, and Brian and Nathan had tickets to two North Carolina basketball games. Brian LOVES the NC Tarheels. It was great to see Andy and Elisa for a brief time, and spend time with Ryan and Kimberly and their kids. On our way to NC, we stopped in Johnson City, TN, to see David and Christine Fields. It was awesome to see them and we miss them terribly. It was a great trip, but a LONG drive.

Nathan and MM with Kimberly's children, Mason and Olivia. Mason is 9, and Olivia is 5. They played very well together. Kimberly made MM this apron and hat. This was perfect for her, because she loves to help cook.

Olivia with a Krispy Cream snowman donut

So cute!

It wouldn't be a trip to North Carolina without these. Brian and I went alot when we lived in Raleigh/Wake Forest. Now Ryan and Kimberly have one within 1 mile of their house. That would be a dream!! :)

MM and Olivia climbing trees on SEBTS campus. It was neat for the kids to see where Daddy went to seminary.

Mason and Nate throwing the football

Ryan is one of the VP's at the seminary, and this is where his office is.

Our pit stop in Johnson City...

Best of friends

Until next year!!
