Christmas Pics and Memories

We have had an enjoyable and pleasant few days celebrating Christmas. We were able to spend time with family on Christmas Eve and again on Christmas Day.
I thought I would take a break from my normal posts to share some pics with you!

On Christmas Eve morning the girls and I tried a new peppermint brittle recipe. Little Sister helped smash the candy canes!

After helping to finish the project, Middle Sister helped clean the bowl! ;-)

Little Sister came back to finish off what Middle Sister left behind.

(Notice the short sleeves combined with the winter hat. She is adjusting
to your typical Alabama winter weather. ;-)

Big Brother has been very proud of his "Sergeant York Rifle!"
(Don't you think those poka dots go great with the gun? :-)

Big Brother and Bigger Brother have had a blast with their
remote control tanks!

Big Sister was proud to match one of her dolls on Christmas!
(We're proud she still wants to! KWIM???)

We were also thankful to spend time with great-grandmother!

Thumb wrestling with Paw Paw!

Back home again, Middle Sister and Little Sister were excited to dress themselves and their dolls in matching pajamas.

We enjoyed our Christmas time, being with family and especially our children.

I am especially thankful for the gift the Heavenly Father gave us on that first Christmas night--the Gift of His own Son to be a ransom for many. Without that ransom, we would have no hope. I pray we remember His gift everyday, not just Christmas. *************************************************************

In the Heart of our Home,

What fun pictures! The girls look so cute in their jammies. How come there are no pics of mom? :)

No matching jammies for Mom. ;-)
