Merry Christmas from Branson!

I realize that we have been back home since Sunday night and I have been attempting ALL WEEK to put a slide show on my blog. Thank you, Mandy, for saving this post. I have an insane number of pictures from our little vacation and of course I wanted to post a bunch of them, although no one may want to take the time to look at them all:D We had a wonderful time, it is especially great when all the family can be together. Branson is absolutely beautiful at Christmas time and Silver Dollar City is especially so. We stayed in cabins, the kids loved the loft and I loved the fact that no one jumped off them, they all talked to Santa, with one exception which will be obvious when you see the pictures (she's gonna write a letter), we rode rides - yes, I did pick up the slack that the pregnant girls couldn't and rode those frogs and butterflies and elephants, and went to see several shows. If you ever get the chance to see "Noah, the Musical" DO SO! It was great - even the kids loved it. They did a beautiful job of bringing this story to life, right before our eyes. Of course, now we have to celebrate Thanksgiving, but that is fine, we have so much to be thankful for - God is so good!




Greg and I love Branson, it is so family oriented and you can see Christian values all around you. It also doesn't hurt that before the girls and their families arrived we were the among the youngest folks around :)

becky...please realize how lucky ya'll are!! with such a big family and grand-kiddos, you must be in heaven at all times!!!
btw: yes, almost every house decorates to that extreme...that just happens to be the prettiest decorated house in the neighborhood. she decorates the best for christmas, too. my dad said the reason people in oklahoma can't decorate like that is the WIND WOULD TEAR IT ALL DOWN!!
