Our Christmas

"Every good gift, and every perfect gift is from above." James 1:17. This is Parker's second verse that he has memorized. It is so true. We did enjoy lots of gifts from friends and family. We also enjoyed the gift of friends and family. We praise God for the gift of His Son, Jesus. We had such a blessed time with all of our family. We started out at the Kelley's and then went to my grandparents. We got to spend some much anticipated time with Clay and Esma (our cousins whom we haven't seen in over a year). On Christmas day we got to spend the day at my parents house with Jason, Cindy, baby Oaklee, Nonna, Pop, my grandparents (all four of them), and the Marlins. It was a great day until 9:00 when we discovered Parker's ear infection. Actually Jason discovered his ear infection (thankfully his clinic is at the end of my parents' driveway). We then went to Atoka, OK to spend more time with Clay, Esma, "Uncle Woger", and "Aunt Cake." Then we all went to Frisco, Texas to spend time shopping, eating, and going to IKEA. It was really, really challenging having a sick kid on the road. That is why we don't have any pictures of us at Christmas. Thankfully, he is doing much better!

More paintings...

These are two paintings that I recently finished. The "AKR" is for Addison Katherine Reed (Amanda & Jim Ed Reed's soon to be born little girl).

Merry Christmas!

We finally made it to the square this year. Parker really enjoyed the lights, the camel, and especially the reindeer. I think this was actually my first time to see a live reindeer. It was pretty cool. I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
