It's Beginning To Look a Lot Like Christmas

I love Christmas! I admit it. I love everything that goes with it. Well, except for people getting trampled in stores. That part stinks. But I've been in the Christmas spirit since about October because I've been getting Christmas scripts ready for the website I manage (http://www.skitguys.com/). It's just easier to do that with Christmas music playing in the background.

Anyway, here are some of the fun stuff we've been doing this season.

Here we are at the mall in the food court after Rachel's choir concert.
Here's Rachel's honor choir that she's in. They did such a great job!

We are really lucky because our city's Christmas parade is right down the street from us. This is Christmas Texas style with a Cowboy Church. I love Cowboy Churches. The people are so great.

This is our Christmas tree. Well...one of them.

Here's Rachel and Graham with their buddy and our neighbor Sammy...oh sorry, Samuel...at the Christmas parade.

Our church does an outreach every year called "Three Trees". We had about 350 families come through and receive gifts for the children. I don't think I've ever said "Feliz Navidad" so much in my life. It was great!

This is the family we got to host during Three Trees, Jose and his mother Rosa. Rosa did not speak an ounce of English, but thank goodness Jose did. Rosa was hilarious, though.
