A Christmas Party, Candlelight Service, and Christmas Morning...

Christmas has come and gone and with it a flurry of excitement!

Savannah and I attended an annual Young Ladies Christmas Party a few days prior to Christmas with a lot of girls that we have grown to love and admire through the years.

Savannah, Alex (our good friend who rode with us to the party), and myself...

...being goofy!

The whole group!

What's a party without good food?!!

Sister, sister...
 Savannah and I

Our good friends, Jesse and Sarah...we've known these sisters for many years and have developed a very close friendship through the years with them.

Jesse is now engaged to be married in March, so it was nice to catch up with her and hear how both her and Sarah were doing!
We had such a wonderful evening!  It was so nice of our friends to put such an fun time together for all of us young ladies to enjoy!

Our church held a lovely Candlelight Service the Sunday evening before Christmas.  We always enjoy this service every year, and this year it was as special as ever!

Christmas morning...!

We woke up a little before 6:00 to start the morning out by opening up our stocking gifts!  Then we all headed out to milk and quickly finish up our chores.  By 7:00 we were all back inside and we called my grandparents who came up to open presents with us!  

Ready to open gifts!

I received a letter from Matthew which I saved under the Christmas tree!  It was very special to have it to open on Christmas morning!

My wonderful of God's greatest gifts to me in life!

My wonderful grandparents...our family has truly been blessed with godly generations and examples in life.

Sitting around playing games...

We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing holiday season and are very much looking forward to what 2015 will bring in our lives.  May the Lord have His perfect will in us in all things!
