TRADITIONS AND MEMORIES

We enjoyed a truly wonderful, blessed Christmas!

First and foremost, our Christmas starts at church at a beautiful Christmas eve mass. Hearing God's word, singing praises to Him, and sharing fellowship with other believers.

Having Sarah home with us for the holiday was the greatest gift!

~My gorgeous kids~

~The little ballerina searching the night sky for Rudolph~

~The kids putting together our traditional Christmas breakfast, "bubble bread"~



~Making name tags for their stockings (they pick different ones each year)~

~Selecting cookies for Santa's plate~

~Doug reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas"~

~Hanging the stockings~


~Happy Kids!!!!!!!!~





I would have loved to have had a white Christmas, but no luck again this year. As a consolation though, the weather was nice enough for a lovely hike in the woods on Christmas afternoon. It was my favorite part of the day!!






Best wishes for a fun, safe New Year's eve.
~I'll be back in '08~
