Holidays With Family

Our Christmas holiday has been very busy, but very good. So many things going on and places we have been. Disney was gorgeous for Christmas and we enjoyed our time there together. The decorations, parades and just the families together was amazing. It is always a place where you see so many different people from all over the world come together. It gives me hope when I see so many families together. Parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, cousins, etc....!

We got to go to church twice in Peachtree City so we were able to see all our old friends that were there and visiting with grandparents. Lots of precious new babies being passed around. I love that! Jamie holding Courtney's baby Hunter and Courtney holding Jamie's little Joey. Both just little kids themselves just yesterday.

DH has headed back to the work force and we have all headed to the beach for a little get away before Savannah goes back to school. Les and the kids are down too so it is a lively and loud little cottage!

Dad has had some sad news. His sister-in-law Luke passed away yesterday morning. She was the wife of one of his favorite brothers, Jim. When mom and dad were first married and used to hop in the car on weekends to go to the beach, it was to Jim and Luke's that they would go. They saw Luke last month and said their goodbyes, but they will be going to the visitation tonight in Andalusia and back to the funeral in the morning. I will get to introduce Savannah to some cousins that she has never met.

It is a glorious day here in Grayton! Cool but sunny, quiet and relaxing. Les and I are in one bed together, while Sydney and Savannah are in the other. We have laughed, giggled, tickled and been silly sisters and I think it has really tickled Savannah and Sydney seeing and hearing us just be sisters together. Les is the best sister! I am so blessed!

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!!
