We've been spending the last two weeks with my family in Georgia and enjoying every moment. Who knows when we'll see each other again? As always, it's never enough time. This week, Don took a sabbatical at our timeshare exhange near Atlanta & planned out a sermon outline for 2010. Nate & I stayed on with my parents and had fun shopping in Kennesaw & touring Ellijay & Blue Ridge, in the Blue Ridge mountains. I went down to the timeshare today while Nate stayed with Grandma & Grandpa. Don & I are ringing in the new year in Atlanta, watching the Peach Drop & celebrating 20 years together!!

What a great Christmas it was this year. It's been 4 years since our family was all together & the cousins had a blast! Good food, good naps, and wonderful blessings...also remembering Jesus...the greatest gift of all.

This year, we were able to go my parent's house for Christmas! It's been 4 years since we've been to their home & this will be my brother's first time to see Nate. We left Sunday afternoon & drove STRAIGHT THROUGH! Yes, we are crazy....we intended to stop halfway but decided to keep going. The weather was absolutely perfect. Couldn't ask for a better trip. Nate did AWESOME! No crying, whining or anything the entire trip. We had a dvd player so he could watch movies from time to time & he slept well in the truck. He's definitely road trip material.

We arrived in Georgia 30 hours later, tired & in major need of a shower. haha. Today, we took a walk around the lake by my parent's house and started catching up. Here's a few photos for you.
