Today we had our first snow! It wasn't a lot, but it was snow! Saturday, we
had a small Christmas music recital at our house for Annah's piano students
and Donald and Jennifer brought a little girl neighbor of theirs who had
come over last week when Samantha had her piano lesson. We hope she
comes over more.
Friday night was Christmas Coffee House Night at the Family Vision Library:
always a special coffee house night! And they had a special unveiling of a
wonderful addition to the library! Miss you, John, Audra, and Avery!
Sunday night, our church group had a Christmas banquet at Yacovelli's. It
was our first time going there. It was a blessed evening. The guest speaker
who had preached at church in the morning, gave the Gospel.
Mom has already taken us Christmas shopping two days in a row, which we've really
enjoyed! Dad took us Sunday night, we found some really nice Christmas cards!

Please continue to pray for the Wilkerson family, as they are going through a
season of very hard times and has gotten discouraging. They have been treated very
harshly lately by some people, and the children are also suffering from it.

that we might live through Him." 1 John 4:9
