Thanksgiving and Christmas 2013 were spent at the home of Paul, Kelly & Reese Benton. Kelly's parents, Jan & Gene Sutton, joined us for both events. Paul's Dad, David, joined us for Christmas. Reese is now 4 1/2 years old. She wanted to surprise her Daddy with some Monkey Bread, so Grandmommy (Kandy) helped her make it while we were there for Thanksgiving. We also made Christmas cards for her to give to all three of her teachers. She learned to emboss and put together several elements on the cards. She then decided she wanted to make a card for her Mommy & Daddy. Grandpa Byron helped her write the sentence she wanted on the inside. Grandmommy helped her decorate the outside of the card. She was so proud, and her Mommy & Daddy were so excited and surprised.
At Christmas, Reese and Grandmommy decorated Christmas cookies.
