A Musical Christmas

Happy 2013!
Friday afternoon, it began to snow. I love the moment when the snow slowly begins to fall. Then it begins to fall harder and harder. I then want to jump outside and dance in it!!
 I ran outside to take a few pictures. I didn't get many good ones.
 I was pretty excited! I just don't like it when the roads get icy and dangerous. Snow is so magical and beautiful!
I had to make snow ice cream. So good!
 My mom's side of the family got together in Fayetteville for a late Christmas gathering. We were excited to see even more family!
 I brought this simple cream cheese and strawberry preserves munchie. I cut it in the shape of a Christmas tree.
 We had amazing food, of course! Ham, macaroni special, fruit salad, carrots, and yummy desserts.
 Aunt Molly and Kelly
 My cousins, Cliff and Parke
It had been so long since I saw these two!
 Molly, Kathy, and Dodie
 We LOVE singing. If we are together, and there is a piano nearby, we can't help but sing together. Kelly and I both have our few favorites like "In the Bleak Midwinter" and "Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming." Such beautiful songs.
My sweet cousin, Emily had to work that night. But we decided to pay her a visit! I am glad I got to see her, even if it was for only five minutes. :)
What fun we had with everyone!
Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
