christmas time is here...

A few more advent activites to wrap up our calendar. We'll finish tomorrow with baking a birthday cake for Jesus and watching The Nativity Story

We'll spend our first Christmas together tomorrow... just our little family. Seems like it's been Christmas all week long though. We just got back from spending several days with the lovelies below. Had a great time. We're very blessed to have so many people that love us.
Merry Christmas!

family day

We spent the entire day together. Cookies in the afternoon. Christmas Train at night.

This year's trip to the Christmas Train is gonna be hard to beat. Perfect weather. No long waits in line. Happy kids.
But what makes it a night I will never forget... I sat next to a certain six year old boy and listened to him pray the prayer asking Jesus into his heart.

Hayes, we could not be more proud of you. What a big decision you made tonight. One that has changed your life forever.
You got up after the prayer and declared, "I'm going to be the best I can be for the rest of my life." Sweet boy.
Looking forward to watching you grow in Christ, buddy. Love you.

How's that for a Christmas present? :)

a groom is hard to find

 A conversation between a girl and a boy...

"No one will play wedding with me!"
"I don't want to play wedding!"
"I want someone to play wedding with me."
"I don't want to do the kissing."
"I won't do the kiss. I will just do the regular dancing."

He ain't buyin.
Poor girl needs a sister.
