Christmas 2015

Hello lovely readers. I am back. These last few weeks have been crazy hectic. A few thing happened. First off just senior things and tying up loose ends. Second was finals which thankfully there were only two of. Third but the most important was the passing of the most beautiful soul there ever was. Nancy Dickerson, my nan, passed away Saturday, December 19. It was something our family saw coming as she had decided to stop dialysis. There are many aspects that came into play here but we are not going to dwell on those. She lived her life to the fullest and was ready to be with Jesus. I plan on doing a blog post dedicated to her in the near future. However, it was still Christmas time. I was honored to be chosen as Gabriel for our church production of “White Christmas.” This is where we put on the Christmas story. We proceeded to have our normal Christmas traditions just with a little sadness in our hearts over Nan’s absence. Christmas Eve was spent putting together a puzzle with my parents and Scottie. Then we went to church and ended the night opening presents. Scottie and I both ended up in bed at about 11 ready to crash and didn’t wake up until 9:30 on Christmas Day. A stark contrast from the early 5 o’clock mornings of our childhood. Christmas Day was spent playing with new gadgets and gizmos. Though Christmas Day evening is spent with my Dad’s side of the family. We open presents and play dirty santa. However, this year there was a twist I decided to film it all and share it with you. I know you are all very excited to peak into what it is like to have christmas with 12 grandchildren around. If you can sit through the video I promise it will make you laugh or at least smile. I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas. But most importantly I hope we all kept in mind what the reason for the season really is about. Though my families hearts hurt we know Nan was celebrating a big birthday up in heaven. 
Thanks for reading!!!
XOXO, Emma Rose
