A Surprise Visit

Ryan came home unexpectedly Friday evening and literally made me scream! I've talked to him several times over the past week and I can't believe he didn't let anything slip! He knew we were putting up the Christmas tree (ridiculously late I know) and didn't want to miss it. I had been a little sad thinking that it would be the first time he wouldn't be here to help. You can imagine how thrilled I was to see him. He and Allie weren't feeling very well but that didn't stop us from doing many Christmasy things. We strung popcorn for the tree, made paper snow flakes for the front window and visited a live nativity, which is beautifully done by a local church.

The children at our church preformed their Christmas program but unfortunately I didn't get any good pictures. They did a great job!!! I'm so thankful to go to a church that is filled with people wiling to share God's love with our kids! I'll post some pictures later if anyone that has them would like to share...hint, hint! Here's a few pictures of the weekend that did come out ok, considering that we were using Emily's camera...ours is going through batteries like crazy lately!
