A Brand New Year

Once again, the Christmas plays are over:
Daniel and Allan in costume for the GBS Christmas Drama - I missed getting Stephen since he was only in one performance due to sickness. 

Straightening headdresses and costumes before curtain call.

So much time and energy to produce such an organized production.

The decorations have added such a fun atmosphere to the season. 

Holiday sicknesses seem to have left us - we're so grateful it was just a few days of lethargy and fever/body aches.

The Christmas story has been read. 

Jesus's birthday meal has been enjoyed.

Gifts have been opened.

Lots of fun and laughs with the Slagenweit crew in Pennsylvania.

Great-Grandma Miller with the Brown Boys
David, Kaylynn and April Slagenweit

Tonya, Jonathan, Carter, Zachary, and Tyler Slagenweit

Evan, Jennifer, Justin, and Bryce Harris

The Whole Gang

Pappy with all the "Grands" 

I really don't know what to say. 

All the Grands in order by age - Allan 10, Daniel 8, Evan 7, Tyler 6, Stephen 6, Bryce 5, Zachery 4, Kaylynn 3, Carter 2. 

David, April, Philip, Marianne, Jonathan, Tonya, Justin, Jennifer

Again.....there are no words. 

Happiness comes in all kinds of forms. 
The busyness will give way to the quiet of winter and the steady rhythm of a school schedule. I love the celebrations, the reflections, the dawn of a clean new year. May it be blessed with God's grace to "do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God." Micah 6:8
