Christmas Day Pictures













John and I went to Christmas Eve service at Shiloh. Jason preached three services and I know everyone went away blessed as we celebrated Christ's birth. Then on Christmas day, we had a really nice afternoon with all the kids. We ate a lot, played Grab a Gift, Give a Gift, Gifts on the Go Game made up by Ginger...lots of G's. Jason and Kimberly gave us a Karaoke machine so we sang our hearts out. Tracie brought Tim and Allie over too. Brian danced with Kimberly. Love my family and was thankful we could share this time together.

The second video is Emily singing and playing with Jason jumping in "Grin". Sweet Emily sitting with her Dad. Two very rare and precious gems they are to me!!!!! Priceless!!!!!

Joshua, Emily and Justin Came to Visit

Jason celebrated Kimberly's birthday this weekend with a special surprise so we had Emily and Joshua and Justin with us...Yeah!!! Justin is an artist too. One picture is of his dad, Jason, as a young boy...he drew it really light so it is a little hard to see but nicely done. Emily came fully packed for fun. LOL Joshua still has a brace on his knew after a basketball injury but will soon have it off. The video is of him laying back and playing my guitar. Joshua and Justin also went to a Ball on Saturday with their friends but you will have to wait to see pictures when Joshua posts them on his blog...(they looked really sharp) They are so much fun to have visit!!!!

Chris Rocking with Comes a Horseman Christian Band


Christopher is the one on the left. This was at one of his concerts. We went and saw him perform at Castles and Coasters last night at 8:30 and then they had another show at at a Church in Scottsdale at 11:30. Pretty loud to say the least but they did play well. Not sure I understood the screamo part of it "Grin" but did really like hearing and seeing Chris play with the group "Comes A Horseman."
