Christmas in Arkansas
This year, as we usually do, we headed to Little Rock the weekend before Christmas to celebrate the holidays with Nan and Papaw Carl. They traditionally have a huge Christmas get-together that weekend, but due to Carl having surgery, and Nan getting over pneumonia, it was just us....and it was kinda nice that way, I have to admit! Of course, the night we got there, the kids were more than ready to go ahead and open gifts. Unfortunately for them, though, they had to "suffer" through another day before they got the "go ahead". They managed, though, and that made it even more fun when the time did finally come!
So, after much anticipation, gift giving and receiving took place, and I think you'll agree that all were pleased with the outcome.We had a great time visiting, shopping, relaxing, and Mark & I even got to go on a date! Thanks Nan and Papaw ---- we needed that!
My name is Stephanie Finton. I am the wife of Mark Finton, and mom to Parker and Kinlee. I have entitled our blog "Lovin' Every Minute of It" because that is exactly what we are doing. There are so many things in our lives that tend to distract us, and we are striving every day to make the most of the opportunities and time that God has given us. It is our goal to live as God wants us to, raise our family to do so, and touch as many lives along the way as we can. Please join us in our journey as we share our lives with you.
