Advent 2015


This year we did something a little different for Advent.  Sonrise (Emmy's church) did something called as "The Christmas Experience."  Each week we were given a word for the week and challenges to help us dig deeper.   We learned the reason it is called Christmas, why we decorate Christmas trees, Who St. Nicholas was, and what Emanuel means.




Christmas Program

Caroline had been talking about this program for WEEKS!  She would not practice for us until she was 100% sure she knew the words and motions.  She got on that stage and sung her little heart out!  "Mary Did You Know?"  may be my new all time favorite Christmas carol.  It was heart-warming to see Caroline worship.


First Piano Recital

Caroline was able to participate in her first piano recital.  She seemed a little nervous at first but rose to the occasion and shined like only Caroline can shine.

He did it again!

Caroline is becoming quite the cheerleader.  Uncle Chris ran a half-marathon and Caroline was one of his #1 fans.  She even ran the last leg with him!

She was so proud of Uncle Chris' accomplishment.  Her exact words were, "Uncle Chris is a great runner!"

A new cousin

Caroline fell in low all over again!  Aunt Carrie lets Caroline hold Addie whenever and for however long she wants.

Trunk or Treat

This was the first year that Caroline got to be a helper at Trunk or Treat at Lincoln.  She was quite the worker with Mrs. Miller and Ms.Devos.  I didn't get a shot of her in action but I did get an after shot.

Fall Family Fun

Uncle David and Aunt DG invited us for a fun fall day in Indy.  Uncle David wanted to show us the big library in Indy in honor of our finishing our big tour of the Allen County libraries.  We met up at the library and began our day.  


 While we are at the library they were having a special performance from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra for kids.  

After the library we headed to Uncle David's office for lunch and playing.  We didn't take any pictures but we made lots of memories.  Then we headed to the Apple Orchard to pick apples and have hot cider.  

We ended the day with dinner and lounging around Uncle David and Aunt DG's place and then heading home.
