Celebrating with Family

February 12, 2016

Kent and I had a wonderful time with our family in December. We all gathered at Josh and Teresa and Silas’ house to celebrate Christmas and to celebrate Josh’s Masters Degree graduation in Informational Technology. This was a week before Christmas.

We had such a great time together. Josh and Teresa rented a house where we could all be together. Kara, Nick and Ivan came as well so that made 8 of us. It was fun to see Silas and Ivan interacting. Ivan was just starting to walk and that was great fun for all of us to watch too.

 

Josh’s graduation was a real treat to be able to attend. Since he only got 4 tickets to the event, it was Teresa, Kent, Kara and I that got to actually see him graduate. Wow! What a privilege!

Afterwards Teresa held a family party for her family and their friends to come and celebrate with Josh too. So Fun!

We did get to celebrate Christmas together. We have fun swapping names and then buying for one person. (We do this on an online site so no-one knows who gets whom except maybe the one who helps Silas buy. But it is always fun!) Grandma gets to put little presents in our stockings as well but it is very low key. We mostly just enjoy being together and that is our present to each other!

We did get to go see the new Star Wars movie together too. Thanks to Kara and Nick getting us tickets..on them. Kara and Ivan stayed an extra couple of days. One day she took Silas and Kent and I to a trampoline place. Ivan and Silas loved it.

We are so blessed to have our grown children walking with our Lord and serving Him in many ways. We are thrilled for the opportunities on their jobs to share Christ’s love with people. We continue to pray for all of us to follow God with our whole hearts.  If you pray for us, please pray that God will continue to draw all of us closer to Him and that Silas and Ivan will understand God’s love for them and the world.
