Merry Christmas to All!!!

Warmest Christmas wishes to all of you!!! This picture was taken last week while on our vacation in Georgia. It was taken in the town square. Perfect props for a picture. After church I told the fam we were headed there for a photo shoot (thanks to Matt's Mom and Dad for being our photographer). If I get ambitious and have time, I'll add our family Christmas letter to this post. If it doesn't get done, we wish all of you a very merry Christmas and hope you enjoy this wonderful holiday season as we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. We know that He lives, and are most grateful for him not only at this time of the year, but always! Love, all the Barlow family

Christmas Dance Recital


Micaela absolutely loves dance. She dances everywhere she goes. I wish I could see what she dreams at night. She oftens recites a dream of being a famous ballerina on stage! And I hate to brag, but she's pretty darned good! She's been doing 4 hours of dance this year. She had a Christmas recital this past week. She strutted her stuff and some great dance technique. She was grinning from ear to ear and is quite the little performer.

Micaela is so lucky to have the cutest teacher this year at school. She came to Micaela's dance recital. Micaela had told her about it earlier at school, then Miss Robbins called to get the details, and then showed up. It was so sweet and completely made Micaela's night. She threw her arms around her and said, "I love you, Miss Robbins!" (This teacher is seriously awesome! She totally goes the extra mile to do so many cute things. She used to teach in St. George. When they were doing their seasons unit, she'd drive to Cedar City and put snow in an ice chest and bring it to school so the kids could see what snow is like, because many of them had never seen real snow. Who does that??!!!) Thank you to Grandma, Grandpa, Grandma Mildred, Nana and Papa and Miss Robbins for coming to see Micaela. Thank you to everyone who supports and loves our children!!!

When the dance recital was over (Micaela did 2 dance numbers and then showed off her technique) she wanted to do it all over again!

And here's what AJ thought of the whole thing...........................................

And he kept asking every 5 minutes if we could go home yet!! Not sure dance is quite his thing!
