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.




Winter Recital

Grace had her first violin recital this year.  She was a little nervous but she faced the challenge with poise and confidence.  She played two violin pieces followed by two piano pieces.  Some of her biggest fans came as well.

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.

Run Chris, Run!


We cheered Uncle Chris on as he completed the Fort 4 Fitness 10K.  Grace was very impressed with Uncle Chris' accomplishment and has decided she would like to do the Kids Fort 4 Fitness next year.

An Afternoon in Paris

This year's party was a no brainer.  Grace has been all about Paris for the past year and with the new American Girl doll visiting Paris the hype grew even more.  The plans were made and the passports were stamped.
