I just love Christmas time full of singing, parties, and preparation for the birth of Jesus.
The first festive activity this year was the 2nd annual cookie swap hosted by Annie and Carrie! It is such a fun time of laughter and eating. This year I made a toffee crackle cookie and they were delicious! I love tasting all the cookies and then we have “the vote.” I was so excited to hear my cookie won best cookie this year. I got the cutest apron that I wore when baking all my cookies for my colleagues this year.
The Rotary Club and Junior Women’s Club put on Light Up Williston each year with a Christmas parade. Since Adam and I have been together we have been going to the SEC Championship to cheer on the gators, but since this year was a season to forget we actually got to attend this year. I loved it they had lights on all their trucks and trailers in he parade. Candy, lights, and Santa…what more could you ask for?
We have celebrated with the Whitehurst family last weekend. Adam’s dad has three sisters and the four of them and all their children and their children’s children get together every year! I love it because there are some family we only see at this celebration. The children change so much over the year! Last year we adopted a local family and this year we did the same. I love the fact that we are able to provided for a whole family during the busy Christmas season. After lunch all the women get together to wrap the gifts which is always a fun time. Aunt Betty Ann and her family did a fabulous job decorating!
Don’t you love this grape vine Christmas tree?
I am now on break from school and am hoping to enjoy being home and catch up with family and friends!
