Christmas was so fun that it deserves it's own very belated post.
I am very happy to say that I accomplished a fun craft in the midst of the busyness- I re-covered all of the stockings with fabrics that better suited our family members' personalities and interests. more so than the original red velour-ish material they once were.
this picture perfectly captures our Christmas morning- lily and topher were SO EXCITED! lily is the blur in the pic. mia is sitting, drinking her milk, mad that we woke her up...
yup. still grumpy. even after opening some presents. I missed getting a picture of her throwing her toys on the ground in a huff. thankfully most of her gifts came from the dollar section at Target.
lily and topher went to the dollar store and got gifts for each member of our family with their own money. it was SO precious. it made my mommy heart so happy.
and they even wrapped and decorated the gifts themselves!
they are getting so big and growing up so fast.
lily is trying to get her sister excited about her present.
we try really hard to remind the kids all through the hustle and bustle of the holidays that the meaning of it all is the birth of Christ.
thank you God for sending your one and only Son to be born among us so that He could eventually give His life for ours.
Thank you and Happy Birthday Jesus.
