We walked through the door early Thursday morning and were greeted by the familiar smiling face of Edna. We forgot to bring our camera and so found a few pictures in our archives to share.

We enjoyed a delicious carry-in meal with a wide variety of food, plenty enough for all.
Some of us enjoyed singing Christmas carols around the piano awaiting the many special presentations that had been brought by the various families.
Some little fingers got into the swing of things while we were passing time.
Trey had Luke help him with drawing out names to determine the order of presentations. What a fun way to see who would go next!
Macie and Sarah
The crowd waited patiently to see who would give the next presentation. . . .

The Christmas season is upon us. Our cabin is decorated, except for the tree. Hopefully we will cut one this weekend. Mrs. Coyote looks festive in her Santa hat.
For many years we have searched for a manger scene that has a removable baby Jesus. We are so excited to have finally found one this past year. Our manger remains empty until Christmas morning in great expectation of the arrival of the Christ-child. After we read the Christmas story first thing on Christmas morning, it is with anticipation that we find Him filling the manger. Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas! He is the one we look forward to on Christmas morning as everything at Christmas-time centers around Him. If He hadn't been born, we would have no hope of salvation! Our God is good!

the boys finally won one game!Guesstures followed before heading off to bed.After a delicious country breakfast the next morning, everyone decided to traverse to the barnyard to visit the animals.
Molly and Polly obligingly gave rides. What fun!The Pioneer games in the barnyard were fun for everyone! And of course we employed the Pioneer family painting!
Oh no! The baby's crying!
Ahh, this baby is sleeping peacefully.
That evening, a variety of games were brought out again with several sets going at once. Avalanche, Scrabble, Tri-ominos, and Yahtzee were just a few! (Have you guessed that our game closet was recently completed?)
Mark was the Yahtzee champion!
After a fun filled weekend, we worshiped together Sunday morning. The service being over, we said our goodbyes and our company headed away on their six hour trip home to Ohio. What a grand time we had visiting with the McDaniel's!
