Our Christmas Visitors

We have had the BEST week with lots of friends coming to visit us (in all reality - Peyton!) on Pine Valley! I have cooked & washed LOTS of dishes, but all worth it! Pictures & Captions:
RBC Staff (missing Lauren, Jake, & Hudson)
Monday - Started with hosting the Royston Baptist Staff for an appreciation lunch! It was wonderful - Christmas appetizers, Sarah Gregory's Chicken Chili recipe (Thanks Sarah!), Mom's fudge, Christmas candy, & JB's favorite - Derby Pie.  Monday night, we got to meet our dear friend, Margie in Commerce (Peyton slept the entire no pictures)

Tuesday - Youth from our church in Atlanta, Second Ponce de Leon Baptist, came to visit & meet Peyton. I made Nancy's yummy Bar-B-Q Chicken pizza & we snacked on leftovers from Monday.  It was so much fun to catch up, play with Peyton, & laugh watching Griffin & JB play the Wii.

Wednesday - JB's dear friends, Scott, Amanda, & Luke Angle came to visit, as they were headed back to MS. WOW - we got a picture of our lives in 7 years.  Luke, 7 years old, is ALL boy & full of energy. It was so much fun to picture future Christmas moments.  Thank you Angles for being such role models for JB.  Sarah Gregory's baked spaghetti for dinner - a great casserole for a group!!

Thursday - Ansley & Rose came to visit - my student teacher from Fall 2009 & her daughter.  Ansley is such a giver - making the drive from Atlanta, bringing sweet Christmas gifts, & hugging Peyton. I just wish we could have visited longer, but so thankful for the short time together.

I can't begin to describe how excited Jonathan & I are to share our first Christmas with Peyton! We are making special memories with special friends & as a family.
