There is so much excitement at the preparations for a beautiful wedding. Even though our duty is only the Rehearsal Dinner to prepare for, there are still many preparations to be made. There are "ohhhs and awwws" as dresses and wedding clothes are tried on. There are many tears as many "lasts" are taking place. There is sadness as we see our son's room emptying of all his stuff and filling with boxes. But, then there is much joy in the thought of gaining an amazing daughter in law and seeing the joy of our son as the day approaches.
So, the countdown has begun. 6 more days until our boy says "I Do"

We had a wonderful Christmas! My kiddos all spent the night in the living room with the tree lights on. Many giggles were heard, then many snores! :o) I do have to say, tucking in my Josh was difficult. This is his last Christmas Eve to sleep in our home. So many lasts happening. sniff sniff. I went to sleep thinking of all the sweet Christmases we've shared together.

We enjoyed taking our older 3 out to dinner and then to see a play in Gainesville, "Little Women." We all enjoyed it. It was funny listening to my guys getting the giggles during part of it. They thought it was quite funny. Beth, Brenna and I are ready to go back again! Girl time here we come!! :o)
Some of our members own a Badcock furniture store nearby. They hosted a party for VSIBC. What fun it was! We played games, exchanged gifts, and had such a great time. We hope to do this again next year!!

For December's activity, we met at the nursing home and sang carols and passed out the homemade cards.
Since the roads weren't yet closed, we saw floats go by getting to their proper spot for the parade line up. Then, we saw a bunch of tractors heading the right way. Did I mention that I love small town America? :o)
It turned out to be quite a chilly night. The kids were able to use the Christmas hats they picked out at Dollar Tree. So adorable! The fudge was super yummy, too!
Such a fun Christmas evening!!
