So sorry to hear of Katie Hancock's ATV accident in which she broke both bones in her arm. Praying for a speedy recovery.
Terry and Betty Thomas traveled to Cedar Grove where they spent the weekend with son, Patrick. While there they enjoyed the Christmas Party hosted by Southern Serenity Ranch where Patrick trains and shows horses.
Friday night, Prosperity Baptist Church youth and chaperones enjoyed a trip to Nashville where they enjoyed ice skating at the Centennial Sportsplex. Going were Jordan Blackburn, Hailey Walker, Adrianna and Alayna Reed, Case Isenhart, Mary Beth Patterson, Garrett and Bailey Hayes, Destiny Rich, Emily Keaton, Callie Mulloy, Shelby Clayborn, Madison Hayes, Haley Satterfield, Alan and Lesa Hayes, Linda Hayes, and Chris and Joanie Blackburn. No broken bones!
Saturday Jordan Blackburn was treated to a birthday meal at Cheddar's in Murfreesboro. Helping him celebrate were parents, Chris and Joanie, Emily Keaton and Hailey Walker.
Kullon and Shiloh Patrick enjoyed a day of play with Tim, DeAnna, Alayna and Adrianna Reed.
That afternoon they attended the 18th birthday party for Bailey Hayes which took place in the Fellowship Hall of Prosperity Baptist Church.
Doug and Cheyrel Pursell with Leslie Pursell joined Jacob, Annette and Annalee Pursell and Buddy & Song Little at the Gaylord Opryland Resort where they enjoyed the very cold Ice Show.
Anne and Mickey Anderson are once again enjoying their annual Christmas vacation in Playa dell Carmen, Mexico.
Tuesday, Michelle James of Murfreesboro took Meme, Robbie Owen, out on the town in Murfreesboro. They did a little shopping and some eating.
Auburn Baptist Church and Prosperity Baptist Church presented their very beautiful and impressive Christmas Programs Sunday.
Another Christmas has passed us by but by Facebook and my own family, this Christmas has been a great one. Lots of families gathered around the tree and the table for good fun, food and fellowship with some larger and some smaller. Some traditions carried on and some changed. It was a beautiful day so some took to buggy riding, others played basketball on their new outdoor goals, others tried out their new tech "toys", etc. My prayer is that each one did not forget the true meaning of why we celebrate Christmas.
Happy New Year to all of you and happy birthday to Stacy Baines, Doug Gaither, James Paul Davenport and Kathy Hays who open up 2015 with a birthday. Joey Reed celebrates the 3rd. On the 5th it's Ann Whitaker Thompson and Erica Melton Garrett's day. This finishes up the week.
Happy anniversary to Brian and Terri Jackson who became Mr. and Mrs. on the first day of 2005.
