Fun with the Whitworths!

Monday, December 21, 2009

Our sweet friends, Michael and Christy, came to visit us for a long weekend.
We had the best time.
It was wet and cold weather for most of the time they were here, but it didn't stop us from enjoying Franklin and lots of tea.

We visited this place...

And Michael was very happy about it.

Caramel apple cider... the BEST.

Here's the info: Franklin's best coffee shop, hands down.

Best buddies. Precious.

The boys posed awkwardly with a nativity.

A nativity without the Christ child... it made me feel just a bit sacrilegious. We just resolved the missing baby Jesus by saying, "He is risen indeed!" :)

Oh and we made scones!
Can't forget the scones.

Tender, gluten-free oatmeal scones.
Am I making you hungry?

The boys wrote a song.

It isn't quite finished yet, but once it hits radio I'll be sure to let everyone know. :)

We feasted at J. Alexander's.
Mountains of potatoes,

Thank you guys for making the trek from Atlanta.
As always, you blessed us so much with your presence.
We love you both and can't wait to see you again soon!

  1. I know this post was two years ago, but I've been slowly reading through your blog and wanted to tell you about why the baby Jesus was missing from the Nativity. Was it in front of a Catholic Church? Because Catholics have a tradition of not putting the baby Jesus in their Nativities until Christmas comes to symbolize the Jews awaiting the Messiah, the waiting of the Holy Family for the birth of Christ, and of all people anticipating the second coming of Jesus Christ. And then once Christmas comes the baby Jesus is placed in the manger so we can celebrate his coming! Just thought I'd let you know;) I love your blog!
