Holiday parade!

Abby marched in her first Christmas parade this year in town, and she did an awesome job playing "Let it Snow" with her middle school band! We were so glad the rain moved out so we could enjoy some holiday fun! Great job Abby!













Cookie decorating party!

Our annual cookie decorating party grows every year! This year we had 19 kids and 16 grown ups over to cover our house in sprinkles and Christmas cheer! We love this time of year! Mom didn't get too many pictures this year because she was a bit busy, but we snapped a few!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from the Beach Family! We had a wonderfully sweet and quiet Thanksgiving this year with just the 5 of us... Cooking together, playing games, and chilling out made for everyone's favorite holiday celebration to date! Sometimes it's important to step back, quiet our hearts and spend time thanking God for our most amazing blessings right before us! We hope your day was as sweet as ours!





We had a lot of chefs in the kitchen this year!




And quite a creative table decorator! 




We were thankful to see a few family members to celebrate the day together even with the miles between us!


Dad taught some mean turkey cutting skills!



Abby loves to post to Instagram these days, and we're thankful for the love she brings!


Happy Thanksgiving!

Abby's Bucket List!

Abby's bucket list was next, and she was SO excited to go and meet her favorite author. She has read all of the Keeper of the Lost Cities books 3 times now, and looks up to Shannon Messenger to inspire her own interest in writing. It was great getting to listen to her talk about writing for an hour, and then get her books signed! A little "I love you" might even have slipped out when she finally got to meet her! It was a great night!










Can you find us in the crowd???  (Hint: Check out the 6th row on the Shannon Messenger side of the aisle :))
