The three musketeers! 🙂
We had a few mishaps along the way that resulted in several people getting quite wet! When we stopped to eat lunch, the boys built this small fire to help them dry off a bit!
This is the same cave (Cave Spring) that we hiked to with all the cousins at Thanksgiving!
While the guys explored a cave, Natasha and Sarah got creative and played mancala! 🙂
A bunch of us caroling for Grandpa and Grandma! They were happily surprised!
Uncle Craig’s family had two Christmas music programs at a venue in town for local people to come to as well as friends from the surrounding counties. They are an incredibly talented family and they presented a beautiful and Christ-centered program that everyone greatly enjoyed!

“O Holy Night”
Mommy always makes these delicious “candy canes” on Christmas eve for us to eat on Christmas morning. This year she made two extra to give to Uncle Fain’s and Uncle Craig’s families.
Christmas dinner was held at Uncle Craig’s place.

We had quite the group for Christmas dinner! All three of us families living here in MO were there, as well as Nathaniel and Erika who had came up for Christmas. It was also very special to have Bro. Burch (Aunt Regina’s father, who journeyed out with Nate & Erika) join us. Grandpa and Grandma Morley and Bro. and Sis. Mosely, some friends we met since we’ve moved here to MO, also came.

Games and visiting after the delicious Christmas feast!

The guys really getting in to a game of foosball!

Our last program for the year, at the church where Grandpa and Grandma Morley attend. It was fun having Nate and Erika join us for our group choral songs!

Jed’s family came out the week after Christmas to check about financing the place they’re hoping to buy. He was also able to find a job with a local heavy equipment/excavation business.
