2015 Christmas Tour, Part II: ARKANSAS

We had 7 shows in 6 days while in Arkansas.  All were in the same area which made the lodging a breeze!  We made sure we had a fridge and microwave in the room and we were set.  This was our lineup:

1.  Cliff Terrace
2.  Cedarville First Assembly of God
3.  Larry's Pizza
4.  Bethlehem Free Will Baptist
5.  Cross Community Church (Poteau, OK)
6.  Kibler Baptist
7.  First Nazarene

Whew!  It was a whirlwind of a week and a great one!  We already had relationship with most of these, but two churches were new to us and that's always fun -- and I'm pretty sure they'll have us back =)

Now for the pics...

O loved the tree at Cliff Terrace.

He also loved my silly Santa earrings.

A little girl played with him during our soundcheck at Cedarville AOG and he was in heaven.  

That was also the night we all wore buffalo check.  The family that matches together... 

My friend, Heather, works at a boutique and I got a new shirt!  I wore it to Larry's Pizza.  AND it's not maternity so I can wear it after baby.

 Heather also watched chased and played arcade games with Oliver at Larry's while we sang some songs.  She's amazing.

Since we were stationary for about a week, I found some Christmas stuff for us to do so we could vacate the hotel room.  The library had free Santa, pancakes (which we didn't do), arts and crafts, and balloon animals!  It was the cutest.

And he didn't scream!  And he had his first candy cane!  Big day.

Bethlehem Free Will.  (Our friend, Beth, surprised us with gifts for Oliver and Amelia.  SOOO kind.)

The library also had a story time!  (Notice the train.  He's still in love with them all!)

I used nap time to address Christmas cards!

We didn't eat here, but needed a picture.  Obvs.

We opened for Consumed by Fire in Poteau, OK and had a fantastic time.  They were amazing!  

The time-out face.  Equal parts sad and cute.  Haha!!

Kibler Baptist.  Fun morning!

We didn't get any pics at First Nazarene.  But, they gave us a wonderful snack basket (my love language) and the pastor and his wife used to live and pastor in Waco, TX!  Crazy, small world.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Fort Smith/Van Buren area.  If you've read this blog for any time at all, you know we go there a lot.  We are so thankful for all the churches in that area that always open their doors and hearts to us.  We are blessed.
