Hannah’s piano studio, recital.
Hannah did a great job organizing our annual church’s Christmas pageant.
Celebrating at Granny’s house: This year our aunt had the fabulous idea to have a dessert bakeoff! Several of us girls enjoyed searching for and making a special recipe. J-C was privileged to be one of the four judges. I’m surprised they were still able to eat lunch after tasting all those desserts. =)
Look who won the bake-off!! Charity beat everyone with her “ Cup of Hot Chocolate Cupcakes”. Way to go sis!
Christmas at Grandpa and Grandma’s house: As Dad mentioned in our Christmas letter post, Grandma has cancer. Right now she is in the middle of getting radiation treatments 5 days a week, but I’m so grateful she’s feeling so much stronger.
…two love birds…
An exciting newer event for our church has been a formal candle-light service on Christmas Eve. It was a very enjoyable evening filled with lovely carols.
We broke a record in the Burnett house-hold this year…we were home all day on Christmas! …I could…get used to it! =) AND…much to my delight, God sent us snow on Christmas DAY! …I could definitely get used to that!!!
Love spending time with the big bros. =)
…two more love birds… =)
Mom whipped up another one of her famous Christmas teas for us. The food was excellent and fellowship priceless.
I just felt SO blessed this year to have my whole family under one roof (a new one at that =), and grateful because we know Jesus and have Hope.
We serve one amazing GOD who, created the universe, breathed the stars into being, holds us together, and gives us each breath we take. Yet, even though He does all these amazing things, He chose to humble himself, reveal God’s love to us, offer up His own life to bear our sins on the cross and free us from sin and a life consumed with ourselves (which doesn’t satisfy), and give us purpose-filled abundant life. I encourage you to take some time, and if you are saved, think about where you’d be and what your life would be like without God’s amazing love and grace…then take some time and give thanks to Him for Who He is and what He’s given. To God be the glory great things He hath done!
