Christmas

January 9, 2019

Our son, Josh called us a few weeks before Christmas and invited us to join his family for a Christmas trip to Knoxville, Tennessee… we were going to see a play there called “The Unusual Tale of Mary and Joseph.” Sooo we overjoyed to join them first in Michigan and then driving with them and celebrating Christmas in Knoxville, Tennessee. On our way to Knoxville, we all stopped to see Kents’s brother Ron and wife and had a delicious dinner with them before continuing our trip.

We all got to explore Knoxville together. Checked out a craft fair and Farmers market. We saw a man playing a drum that he’d made at the fair. Teresa had found us a nice house close to a neat park that we enjoyed a long walk in. Our weather was so nice for the whole time too! We all helped make some peppernuts, a family tradition cookie.

And Silas made us an apple pie for our family dinner. So we sure had a great time together and enjoying a Tennessee Christmas. And the play of course, was a highlight. It was fun to have some VIP seats as Josh and Teresa have some strong connections with the play’s director. It was a very unique view of the Christmas story. We enjoyed but forgot to take a picture😒!

We also got to spend a little time with Teresa’s sister’s family and children too. You will see a picture of the four nieces at a table where they were coloring a butterfly. And also Ari showed me a little finger play. We have known these kids for their whole lives and love them too! It is always a joy to be with our family!

Our daughter Kara and family were with her husband, Nick’s family for Christmas this year. We do thank God for the many years we have celebrated Christmas with our children in many different places. I put together a short video to give you a small idea of our family celebration.

We pray that you also had a good Christmas and will have a wonderful Happy New Year!

Gratefully,
