Today we went with friends to Spring Arbor Assisted Living, a retirement community in Apex, NC. The kids handed out candy canes and spent time visiting with the residents. We were even given the chance to sing a hymn. I believe that the residents truly enjoyed our visit with them, you can see it in their faces in the pictures. One lady asked to hold Hannah, with a little assistance, she told me it was the highlight of her month.

I haven't been ice skating in 12 years! My children go every week, Christopher skates occassionally, but I'm normally expecting. Last Friday, when Christopher said he was coming along, I asked him to watch the baby so I could skate this time. It was a nice winter treat.

This past Friday night we had a lovely caroling party at our home. Our home was packed with many from our church family. We had a delightful evening of song, fellowship, and food. Here are some of the photos I caught during the evening!

Saturday we spent the day with the my family the Mathna's. (When Chris and I were in College we visited Mr. Ed's Elephant Museum, Chris still wears the comfy t-shirt around our house. The kids always ask, where is that... Mr. Ed's?) So, Saturday, we suprised the kids and took them to Mr. Ed's Elephant Museum. The kids enjoyed seeing Elie the Elephant outside and eating Fresh Roasted Peanuts! It was a little cold outside but the kids didn't mind. They also enjoyed the Elephant tire swing.
We went straight from Visiting Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Carnes to Chris' parents home. We enjoyed watching the baby's, playing pool, and playing Taboo, while the children played. Enjoy the photos!
On Friday Morning, we spent the morning and early afternoon with Chris' Grandparents, The Carnes. We had a very nice visit. Hannah was able to meet her Great Grandparents for the first time. The kids had fun outside visiting with the horses and running loose. And we also got a glimpse of where Great Grandma and Great Grandma spend their time. The pictures are a little out of order but at least their posted. Enjoy!
