The stockings were hung by the chimney with care...in hopes that Saint Nick will stop by here... "We've been good this year!" Merry Christmas from the Walden's! Jonathan, Karen, Parker, Peyton and Paige
The family had stopped to spend the night in a motel on their way to Grandma's house. The motel had lost power and some robbers broke into the back of their van and stole all of their Christmas presents!
Quoting scripture from Luke 2...
Emmitt Edwards got scared of the microphone and would not say his Scripture...
Peyton kept putting his hands in his pockets, pulling the pockets inside out and at one point, almost pulled his pants clear down!!! At one point in the program, Micheal Edwards had to tell him to stop picking his nose! (He learned all this from his daddy!)
Showing their parents their homemade Christmas tree...
Peanut Butter........crunchy style! Mmmmmm! Peyton found a piece of trash and Paige is just about to flash the audience...
Thank goodness that dress was two layers!
Their last song..."Christmas is the time" to praise the Lord for all He's done!
Peyton is now gone, sitting on my lap, and Emmitt is in his Daddy's arms!
(And from behind the curtain, director Jenny Grissom, is heard letting out a huge sigh of relief that it's over!)
Last week, Parker's school was doing a fund raiser and "lesson" all in one. The parents sent money to school with a list of who to buy for as well. The students could choose the items but couldn't go over their budget. Parker had so much fun buying presents for Peyton and Paige. He was SO excited when he came home from school on Friday, that he could not wait for the twins to open their presents! He was supposed to wait until Christmas day but he simply could not wait! He was so excited about what he had bought for his brother and sister! Grandma Sheila was babysitting and didn't have the heart to make him wait! Peyton got a car and ball and Paige got a stuffed pink fish and a rubber light up ball! They loved their toys that their big brother bought for them!
Stay tuned for pictures of our Jr Church program yesterday morning!
No, I didn't quit blogging, just too busy to stop, sit down and think of something profound to write! :)
Tonight we are going to the Gaither Christmas Concert at Conseco Fieldhouse in Indy! I've always wanted to attend one of their Christmas concerts but they've never been nearby until now! We had a slight scare earlier today as Parker was fairly sick. He has a double ear infection but thanks to Tylenol, antibiotics and ear numbing drops, he's feeling pretty good at the moment! Uncle Donnie and Aunt Cammie are going to babysit tonight so we can have a date with my parents and Darin and Amy Shearer! We'll try to get some good pictures with Mom's new camera!
This past Wednesday night we had communion in church. Jonathan and I went up front and when we came back, Parker leaned over to me and said, "So...what did you all have?" :) He thought we had a big snack! HA!
Last night the twins were being absolutely wild and jumping up and down in Peyton's bed! Parker was sick and Jonathan was gone helping the new Pastor move into the parsonage. I went into their room and said, "You two are in big trouble!" I started to grab Paige and pull her out of the bed and Peyton immediately began to spank his own bottom end!!! (I tried so hard not to laugh!!!) He knew he had been bad!
Tomorrow night is our Sunday School class Christmas party so I'll be fixing food for that! We have lines to memorize for our Christmas program and tons of shopping left to do, all the wrapping, etc! However, it's still the most wonderful time of the year!
Jonathan and I have been happily married for 15 years. We have been blessed with three wonderful children and there is never a dull moment in this household. Jonathan and I are trying to raise our three children for Jesus and have plans to happily grow old together!
