Our family was blessed to spend time together, with my family, and with Mr. Incredible's family. My Uncle, the pro-bass fisherman, came down from Oklahoma to be with us and we were so glad to see him.

And it snowed here on Christmas Eve. We actually had a white Christmas. Delight! It was fun to carry presents and the food that we made for Christmas Eve dinner back and forth between our house and my parent's house in the snow.

The week flew by as New Year's Eve quickly arrived. New Year's Day found us celebrating and singing at church that morning, we celebrated Mr. Incredible's mother's birthday that evening, and then put up all of the Christmas decorations. Whew! Then it was time to go to bed and back to teaching Monday morning.
I woke up early Monday morning and asked my man if he could hear that? He listened and asked me what I heard. I told him it was the collective groans of teachers and students that had to go back to school the day after New Year's Day. He felt no sympathy. My sleepy students greeted me Monday morning with sleepy, half-hearted smiles...and I totally understood.
I'm thankful for a new year, a fresh start, new ideas swirling in my head for photography this year, my drive to get things de-cluttered and reorganized, and a Saviour who is the same yesterday, today, and forever!
