This little video was from the beginning of December…only a few months behind
We traveled to my in-laws’ in Greenville, SC for the entire week of Thanksgiving, which was a treat. We made lots of memories, eating yummy food (of course!) and playing games and just spending time together. As an added bonus, we got to spend a day at my sister-in-law’s new home in Spartanburg. Meeting the newest nephew/cousin Campbell Hayes Van Steenburgh was so much fun for all of us, especially since he (and his parents) will soon be leaving for Dubai to a part of a church plant there. (I began writing this post in December and am finally getting around to finishing it. My bro-in-law Philip is now in Dubai, and his wife Katherine and baby Campbell are headed there next week.) Lots of pics were taken but here are a few favorites.
The children just started private art lessons in our home with Miss Dayna. Even though they are just beginners, they have done some beautiful artwork already. I hope to post samples as they complete projects. It will be fun to watch their progress.
My cousin Pierson got married in September in Chicago, and my parents and brother and sister-in-law were able to attend. It was too much for our family circus, but my aunt sent me these great pictures of my family. I wanted to post them because they’re such sweet pics.
