Snowy Church Gathering

I attend a home church each Sunday that actually meets in my living room! We have four families plus me and my cousin, and we have wonderful visitors occasionally. One great thing about having such a tight knit church is that we are all very close. For Christmas this year, we decided to have a get-together at one of the other members' home, and it happened to be the first day we got snow this winter! I made a short little video showing a few clips of the snow with some clips of our gathering.

Doesn't it look so fun?! It's actually a little deceiving...the music makes it seem much more calm than it really is. With all the children we have there, it's rarely calm! But we love it that way :)

 The snow back at my house. It didn't stick, but it was so pretty!

Mike making our coffee for the day...French press yummmmmm

He got to go around this year and say all he wanted for Christmas was his two front teeth! 

 Had to include this adorable little booger. The baby...not Mike :)

This is what I contributed to the meal. I just bought a bundle of asparagus and baked it with olive oil, basil, and Parmesan cheese.  It was really yummy! Tabitha made this amazing butternut squash soup that was possibly the best soup I've EVER EATEN!

Mike and Tab have some interesting Mary and Joseph sculptures from a nativity scene( i think.) They are pretty much the ultimate conversation piece! Angelia does a pretty good job imitating Joseph, don't you think?

I hope you all enjoyed the pictures and video from our Christmas gathering! I certainly enjoy each moment that we all spend together.

On a separate note, it snowed again! Today is REAL snow, though. It's a few inches deep, so there's no school (or work for me!) and I'm going to be shooting a Survivor audition video for a friend! I have no idea what to do for the video, but I think it'll be loads of fun shooting in the snow.
