Merry Christmas to You

Now 4 days before Christmas, we are finally ready to come in from the rush & chaos & busyness & enjoy this time. Sad, isn't it? We had our Kids' Choir musical last night, Christmas at Bethlehem Gulch, in which all 6 of us participated. Clay ran sound, etc., I directed the songs, Audrey was a sheep at the manger, Abby was a pig at the manger (don't ask!), Adrienne was an angel (for 1 night of her life! Just kidding!), and Addison was a little lamb. Wish I had pictures.

The week before that was the Adult Choir musical, The Name...Jesus. Again, we all participated to some degree. Clay lead the multi-church choir, the Kids' Choir performed on one song, & I led them. It really was good (and I'm glad it's over!).

Before that, West Side Christian School (where Adrienne is) had their Christmas program. The K-4's did a nativity story, and Adrienne was Mary. I took video, but it's kinda long, so...

Intermingled in all of that is the Christmas parties, shopping, Christmas cards, and all the other things that occupy our time. (You all know how it is!) But, finally I have some peace, now with the groceries bought & the girls at home & no set agenda for the days leading up to Thursday. Now we'll bundle up & play in the yard, drink hot chocolate, watch the Grinch & Charlie Brown & take good naps in the afternoon. Sounds nice, huh? Hmmm...

So, merry Christmas to all of you, from us. Hope your Christmas & New Year hold blessings you couldn't dream of.

Our New Kitty!

So cute! Here's our new pet, an 8-week-old grey & stripey teeny little girl kitty! Abby, with the help of her sisters, named her Eloise. She is bound to be one tough kitty!
Owens Funny of the Week: We found out last weekend (Dec. 13) that our kitty, who was sick & went to the vet, is not a girl, but a BOY kitty! Ha-ha!! We thought we'd let Clay name him, but the best he could come up with was "Falwell" (after the late Pastor and President of Liberty University, Jerry Falwell). Adrienne decided on "Handsome-- because girls are pretty & boys are handsome!" she says. So now we have "Handsome Falwell!" Twisted, huh!?!

Blessed with so much!
