As promised, my favorite moments of Christmas break…
Reading (not a textbook) and mulled wine.
A wonderful day at Disneyland with this gem!
Pictures with Santa, inspired by 8 month old Lily!
Another wonderful day at Disneyland with mom!
There is no one more fun than this lady!
I loved enjoying the newest additions to California Adventure, especially this one!
The Candlelight Processional at Disneyland – so incredible to hear the story of Jesus read and songs about His glory being sung by thousands!
A lovely evening at The Grand del Mar with these sweet girls. Laura and Sarah were both in from New York and it was such a joy to spend some time with them!
A super secret mission in La Jolla. It was a beautiful day! You’ll hear more about that later.
Reuniting with J.ACRES! I love these girls so much. The six of us have been friends since before High School and I just love that we still get together and were able to over Christmas! There are two girls in LA, two girls in San Diego and two in Texas and we were all able to be in one place on the same night!
Our Missouri road trip! 25.5 hours straight through is a little crazy – but we decided to make it an intentional time and bless people along the way!
At almost every stop we gave out cards thanking the worker for doing what they do and making our vacation possible!
Playing “Just Dance” with mom in Joplin. We did a lot of this!
We ate a lot of good meat!
FaceTime dates with Laura! I love seeing her and it was really neat for Grammie to get to see her!
Definitely a highlight: trying to get the wine uncorked on Christmas eve.
Christmas Eve tradition!
She’s the cutest!
Spending time with Grammie and Aunt Jan!
Mom and Dad meeting their Texas grandson!
More wonderful time with my best friend from college, Meagan and her sweet family!
Even if Judah made faces at me!
He’s pretty good at this!
Dad wasn’t so sure about holding a baby, it’d been awhile, but he was so sweet with Judah.
New Year’s Eve with my life group! It was a great way to end 2012! We started 2013 with a rad time of prayer. I love these people. The best part of Abilene, for sure!
Today started the new semester. Two of four, here we go!
