Back in college, I asked my parents if I could have a Christmas party for our college friends at the house. They have ten acres in the country and we were centrally located and so they graciously opened their home up to over 50 college kids year after year. That tradition became known as Christmas in the Country! The top picture was from their house in 2009 and the bottom is Christmas in the Country 2017! It’s the same people (plus some dear friends from other areas of our life) but it’s a different porch!! This weekend we got to relive Christmas in the Country at our new house and it was such a gift to see so many old familiar faces. Thank you Momma and Daddy for letting us start such a fun tradition so many years ago that we get to continue at our own place in the country!! ❤️❤️❤️
