Staff Christmas Party Shenanigans

We hosted the staff and spouses at our hours for a Christmas party last Thursday night. It was a lot of tremendous food, great fun and crazy Christmas game shenanigans. So blessed to work with these folks on the same team in ministry!

Hometown Christmas

We spent Friday evening at Hometown Christmas on the lawn of City Hall in Fruitland Park. What a lovely tradition in our small town! Even though it was 77 degrees outside, we had a fabulous bonfire and got our annual selfie in front of it. 

The big boys wanted to climb the rock wall and play laser tag and had a blast! 

All Davis wanted to do was meet Santa. We saw the Grinch in line but Davis didn't want a picture with him. Davis told Santa what he wanted for Christmas and was thrilled to get a candy bag and stuffed teddy bear from Mrs. Claus. 

And we spent a little bit of time checking out the Snowman contest with the members of City Council. That's Chris, our friend from church, getting all decked out. And me with his wife Meredith.

It was a fun evening and thankfully we had time to do everything we wanted before the rain started! Love living in the city of Fruitland Park with these fun hometown traditions.

The Big Birthday Gift

So first he was going to use his birthday money for a hoverboard. But then he discovered this online. Many thanks to family and others who contributed to Wesley's birthday fund. This is what he got and he loves it!!!! It's even got two smaller wheels on the back and in two days he's learned how to use them for tricks. Will try to post some action videos later.
