Thanksgiving has recently come and gone; the Matthews enjoyed a "quiet" thanksgiving with our family and Grandma Matthews. We enjoyed time together, good food and great fellowship. We started off the winter season by cutting down our Christmas Tree at Jan's Tree Farm, an annual tradition. Prospero's pick this year: he loved the little ones, but then understood they needed to grow bigger and we weren't allowed to pick the ones that were only 2ft tall. He settled on a beautiful tree just under 6ft. Jhon enjoyed being "the man" by cutting the tree down with little help from Jim. We look forward to dance recitals, school performances, and the Christmas program at church. I joined the choir this year and look forward to the Christmas services. I have not been in choir in 15 years, since high school, and am blessed to serve in this area. We spend this season reflecting on the last year and all God has done for us and excited for what our future holds as Jim is graduating from Seminary this Spring!!!
Love this pic, I know Jhon is wearing 2 diff shoes, "it is my style", and Prospero has Estefania's gloves on, the only pair we could find that fit him, how do gloves go missing so often??? I love the happiness in their faces.

Jhon has a signed copy from Steven Curtis Chapman, they used his pic on a Show Hope Brochure, When he signed it he even spelled his name right!
Even Windy is loving this season
