My Busiest Months of the Year

I haven't posted since before Thanksgiving because November and December are the busiest months of my year.  Besides gearing up for Thanksgiving and Christmas, I was busy with quite a few events.  Among my favorites are:

Attending the Administer Justice Banquet and being privileged to hear Tony Evans speak.

Attending the Extraordinary Women Conference in Rockford - AWESOME!

Attending our dear friend's son, James' wedding. 
Celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary:

Hosting a Nilla Wafer Dessert Party:

Working on Fox Valley Church Women's Ministry biggest annual event, Christmas Expectations (ladies' tea). This is my table:

Seeing Damaris Carbaugh with some of my Women's Ministry co-leaders at Bartlett Baptist Church's Christmas Tea:

Celebrating a good friend's 40th birthday:

Hosting an early Christmas dinner for my parents because they would be out of state on Christmas. 
Bringing a cake to my mother-in-law's 91st birthday - isn't she lovely?  She surprised us by having baked Walt's favorite cookies.

Making 6 kinds of homemade candy for Christmas sharing:

Hosting a crowd for Christmas Day dinner at our home. My granddaughter, Maddie:

I have wonderful memories and funny stories from each of these events. 
I'm reminded of Luke 2:19

But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 
My memories will warm me many years to come.

I hope your memories of Christmas and the weeks leading up to it, are as happy and warm as mine.
