We’re Blessed

We’ve been so blessed this Christmas.

First, my mother/father in law sent us enough money to get new tires on our vehicle so that we could travel safe (our tires were bald).

I traveled better then I thought, being that I am nearing the end of the second trimester. Yay!

We left early in the morning on December 21st, and arrived at my in laws home in Michigan around dinner time. I was so ready to get out of the car…even though we’d made time to stop every 2 hours or so. I was tired.

We spent Saturday with my father in law while he played with his brass band at the mall. It was lovely, I just love hearing them play. They played some hymns and lots of carols. Clint bought me a prezil and a smoothie which were delicious.

Sunday we went to church and for whatever reason, I was hot. I thought I was going to throw up, so I ended up going to the bathroom during service twice. Luckily I didn’t throw up and got cooled off. The sanctuary was just really warm. We stayed after service to fellowship with some old friends we’d not seen since our wedding. 🙂 It was nice to catch up.

Monday we went to service again and sang carols.

Christmas was Tuesday. Clint and I bought got lots of ornaments for our tree (next year). & a few gift cards. Our of all of our gifts my favorite was my lil Snowbaby that my mother in law bought me. It’s got 3 pegnins on it and says “Proud Parents”! Awe. She also bought our son his car seat! Yay!

We are so blessed, I owe very thing I have and will have in the coming year to my Lord and Savior who has provided everything we’ve needed. Even our lil’ bundle of joy! Can’t wait to meet him!

We leave January 2nd to go home. Praying for travel mercies.
