Once again it was Christmas vacation and Glen and Jennifer Alford Walker made their annual visit to Mississippi with their children, Emily, Joseph, and Grace, to spend Christmas with Mack and Sherry Alford at their home in the country.
The Walker children love to visit their grandparents in the country where they have fun exploring the woods and enjoying other activities that are not available in Macon, Ga., where they live. Of course, Mack and Sherry are always delighted to see them and eagerly wait for them to arrive whenever they visit. It was another joyful Christmas!
Christmas this year was awesome for Brian and Lydia Whitaker Berry! Their two children who serve in the military were home for the holidays. Emily Berry who is in the United States Navy came home on leave and her brother, Ross Berry, who is in the United States Air Force, was also home. Christy Bowman and her husband came from Petal with their two sons which added to the Berry's holiday joy!
Happy Birthday to Barney Nowell who celebrated his 91st birthday on Dec. 30! He and his wife, Lavinia, were so pleased to have their children and their families celebrating with them. What a monumental milestone for this very special person!
