christmas memories

(note: bear with the bad pictures, I'm still grieving the loss of my slr camera...)

My Gifts This Christmas...

Four sleepy faces, tousled heads, and their slippered feet jumping on my bed
all resplendent in pajamas of polka dots, stripes and moose antlers

Three little children rushing to find baby Jesus whom we hid on that Christmas morning
 excitement barely contained as the King of Kings is discovered

Those same three kids snuggled up to their daddy as he read the Christmas story
sing song voices joining in a happy birthday chorus

Two tiny hands in mine, all squealing laughter and squirming baby
a first Christmas for a Legend

Two hearts so full, so blessed, so intertwined.

One Saviour of the World
 Bursting light and love and life
Breathing hope into my soul

Joel reading the Christmas story and an adorable rudolph the reindeer cupcake our cousins made for the Christmas Eve party.
Our attempt at a family Christmas photo. 

I Hope your Christmas was filled with the very best gifts of all!

What a beautiful family, and a beautiful day! (I might steal your idea for hiding a baby Jesus on Christmas morning!)

Joye, my dear! All of these pictures are so great, I am blessed to be apart of y'alls lives! (: I love playing with all of your adorable kids--even though now Boston thinks his belly button can talk, and Thad thinks every time he sees me I am like some crazy action figure that can carry him on my shoulders (considering i see you about 3-4 times a week that is my workout!) I love you guys sooo much.
