On the Friday night of Josh's last seminar session (the 6th) Dr. Melick, the director of the program, had a Christmas dinner for all the PhD students and their wives. It was a good time of fellowship and getting to know each other outside the classroom. We didn't have the camera so not pictures of this one.
The next evening Stacy went next door to a gingerbread house making party with some of the ladies on campus.
Then the next day our church threw a wonderful potluck dinner and shower for us and the baby. We feel very loved by our church family.
Sunday afternoon was the Christmas program at the preschool. It sure was nice for Stacy not to have to be directing it.
That night we went to some other neighbors/friends' place for a farewell party for two of the couples who graduated and are leaving to go overseas for ministry.
These two (Lydia and Bryce) belong to the Watts and Chartneys, the couples who are leaving. Bryce was born just before we got here last fall and Lydia, just after.
You might remember a picture similar to this a few blogs ago. Here's an update. Liz (due in March, in 11 weeks), Stacy (due today), Shannon and Carsyn (11 weeks old).
Last Saturday night we went on a little Christmas date. We went into the city to a concert in the beautiful Grace Cathedral. It was called a Cathedral Christmas and it was a mens and boys choir doing traditional Christmas carols and songs. Then we went to Cheesecake factory (our favorite).
