Kids' trees

Okay, I have to show pictures of Sarah and J.T.'s Christmas trees. I failed to do that earlier, and Sarah wanted to know why I didn't have pictures of their trees. They are pretty cute. J.T. is especially proud of his "choo-choo Thomas" ornaments. Sarah's tree is decorated in all Barbie ornaments--go figure!

Sunday school Christmas party

Today the kids had their Christmas parties in Sunday school. Once again, I was reminded of how fast time flies. My babies are getting so big! All the kids are so precious. How thankful I am for my blessings.

Christmas, something to celebrate!

Here are some pics of Sarah's Christmas party/last day before Christmas break at school. Enjoy!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

I love Christmas! I love the lights, decorations, food, presents, joyful mood, and of course the reason why we celebrate Christmas. Chris likes Christmas. His family has never been as gung-ho as mine in decorating (it is an art form the way we put lights on a tree) or entertaining for Christmas. However, thanks to my blogging buddies and your stories, he felt somewhat chastised for his lack of enthusiasm when it came to the "man job" of decorating outside. So, thanks to you friends I now have icicle lights on my back porch! This may not sound like a huge deal to anyone else, but trust me, it's the first time in nine Christmases that this much work was done on his part. Oh wait! Did you hear that? That was the hallelujah chorus singing in the background just then! Ha ha ha! Hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas!
