The Holidays

We had a special time celebrating Christmas in the comfort of our warm, cozy Iowa home with just us! Then a couple days later, Caleb's family all came to visit (from GA, OK, and KS!)! After that, it was just a few more days and time to head out for our Spring Tour! Here are a few pictures of our Christmas and last few days at home!

The three Garraway munchkins on Christmas Eve

Traditional Bible reading before stockings on Christmas morning

We always open stockings in pjs and then get dressed before opening gifts!

Excited about CANDY!

Helping Alyssa open a present :)

This girl and her baby dolls.... <3

Ready for a battle!

Laser tag guns!!!

New phones!

So glad Caleb's family could come visit for a few days after Christmas!

The Garraway Cousins

Johnny loves doing "school" with Mommy! He's my first lefty (takes after Daddy) and I was very nervous about teaching him how to write! He's doing AMAZING - I had nothing to worry about!

Next munchkin's a lefty too!

Singing/praying together before my boys!

Fall Recap!

We had a busy fall hither and yon! A picture is worth a thousand words right? So, in lieu of words, enjoy the following captioned photos that in a little way summarize what our lives have looked like the past few months!

One highlight was getting to fly, just the two of us, to Connecticut, for the Powerhouse youth conference! It was a blessing to get to glean from the sweet testimony of Pastor and Mrs. Bish. Mrs. Bish had cancer and actually passed away about 4 months after we were there. Her amazing love for God despite the trials was such a blessing to me!

We got to walk around Boston for a day!

In the beginning of August, David got baptized!

So proud of our boy! He loves his Savior and wants everyone to know!

David (and his siblings) started kindertarten! We love Mrs. Reese and the ABeka DVD program!

Wonderful revival in Zion, IL with our dear Filipino friends at Berean Fundamental Bible Baptist Church!

David quoting Scripture and singing at that meeting

Family fun at the Mall of America!

All ready for church!

Great revival meetings in Pueblo, CO at Rocky Mountain Baptist Church! 
Johnny sang his first solo this week!

Roundup Sunday at Harvest Baptist Church in Manhattan, KS!

We got to see Moses just before it ended in Branson!

Special week of meetings at Hope Baptist Church in St. Paul, MN! This was the church my parents went to during their college years and even got married in! And the neat thing was that not much has changed in the past 35 years! Same walls, same carpet, same pews! It was very nostalgic!

Me with my three blessings on my 32nd birthday!

Caleb and I spend the second half of November and the first half of December helping write our church's Christmas Play script again this year. I also wrote a bunch of songs for the play and we enjoyed playing Mary and Joseph again this year! Thankful for this amazing opportunity to get the Gospel out to thousands during the weekend of our 7 play performances!

At one time, each of these cuties was our baby Jesus in the play! 

Beautiful new bunkbeds built by Daddy and PopPop while my parents visited for the play!

Shopping with Grandma! So fun!
