Our Christmas 2009

Four very excited children on Christmas morning!

Annagrace holding a precious little book she received about how a girl can be a little girl after God's own heart. The book goes through the fruits of the Spirit using beautifully illustrated pictures.

We have a family tradition of serving cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning. The recipe for these scrumtious rolls is called Pillsbury. ;)

Lauren's big gift was an Elsie Dinsmore doll. She is so excited!

My sweet Lauren crocheted this bag for me, and picked out Palmer's pregnancy lotion to put inside it. What a thoughtful and creative gift! Lauren has always loved to give to others.

On Christmas Eve we have a tradition of giving the kids new pajamas. They now know to expect new pajamas which is fun. Here is the group pajama picture. :)

Here we all are right before the Christmas Eve service.

It is hard to believe another year has almost come and gone. I think each year goes faster. We are thankful for the gift of Jesus and what He means to us. He is the giver of every good gift, and He is our real reason for celebration. I pray that we will love Him more faithfully in the year to come. He has been so faithful to us and is worthy of all of our heart's love and devotion.
