Christmas Morning

Santa came!
 Two favorites for me this Christmas morning:
1:  No electronics.

 2.  The kids gave each other gifts.  They were so excited shopping for/making/wrapping/waiting to give their gifts to their siblings.  It was personally very gratifying to Mark and me to see our kids get excited about GIVING, not getting.  I'd like to take it a step further into giving time/etc. to helping others outside of our family circle.  (Heifer Project, mission work, etc.)  The one neat thing we did this Advent season was ring the bell for the Salvation Army.  You could find us right outside the JC Penney mall door a few Saturday mornings ago, singing Christmas carols and turning cartwheels (okay not all of us, but the smallest of us did that last part)!  Christmas is really about spreading JOY and LOVE :)!!

Another heart-melting picture;)
 Wynne stuffed a Santa hat with old socks and gave it to Rudy!  He loved it!  (He loved all things Pom-pom.  But we won't mention poor stuffed Santa!)
 More sibling gift giving / sharing the love.....

 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESUS!  Thanks for being the BEST gift of all!!

  For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting  Father, Prince of Peace.--Isaiah 9:6
