Christmas Eve our son and his fiance that live in Michigan went to church with us for our candle light service. I wasn't sure how Adalyn would do but once again she amazed me and was super and Dalton sang along to the songs. It was nice to have them with me, all cozy and enjoying the service together.
Christmas morning, Dalton was up early as I expected. But Adalyn slept in and when I tried to wake her she said just a minute longer. Can I watch cartoons for a minute? She finally made her way to the living room and was in awe of what her little eyes saw. The rest of the day she kept saying I didn't know Santa came! We went to my mom's that afternoon and then on to the movies that night. We saw Bedtime Stories, it was a cute movie and a great way to end a busy two days.
We hope everyone had a great Christmas and made memories to last a lifetime!

Merry Christmas to all

Opal and Adalyn

Adalyn's friend Miss Opal who we go to church with gave her the sweetest gift Sunday. She give her the little bible Adalyn is holding. Her mom is always so thoughtful. The girls have became such good friend over the past two years and we are so thankful God has put these wonderful people in our lives to help us along our journey to being the best Christians we can be.
Our family wishes everyone the happiest and merriest Christmas. I hope everyone who follows, reads or just stumbles upon my blog knows the Lord as their personal saviour and because of Him we celebrate this joyous season.

Christmas ornaments

I got a little suprise today, two new ornaments from Leslie. They look great on our tree. The red one was made by orphans in China. My prayer is for this one to be a rare ornament someday because there are no more orphans to make them.

Christmas already?

Ok, I know its not Christmas but I can explain. Sunday night Miss Adalyn could not keep her little hands off our village and the poor juggler took the brunt of her miss handlings. I honestly thought I would run out of super glue. This poor little guy has at least a tube of the stuff keeping him together. Anyway I hurt her feelings by telling her the little guy would have to go bye bye if she couldn't leave him alone. So to make up to her I let her open a present. The look on her face when she opened it was priceless. Do I think I should have waited, no. When she kissed me and hugged my neck that was all needed to know I was right. Oh, and she has not touched him since.

Santa talks to Adalyn
Update: I showed this to Dalton and he asked me to put his info in, ahh if he only knew how he made my day.

I found this cute site on another blog and thought I would pass it along. You can customize Santa to talk to your child. You can even put a photo of them in his book. Adalyn was amazed and couldn't believe he was talking to her. She had tears in her eyes when she saw the picture of her in his book. She kept saying this is the best Christmas ever. She even said she would be a good girl to Dalton, what more could a mom ask for?

Adalyn and Santa

I have been so fortunate for both of my kids to love the guy in red. Adalyn adores him this year. It could be due to the fact that she understands that he is the one who leaves all the goodies under the tree. But what ever the reason I'm just glad to have pictures of my kids this magical time of year.

This particular Santa has been at the same place or over 14 years. So he is the only one the kids have had their pictures taken with. It was nice when Dalton was little and noticed things like that. He never questioned anything about Santa because it was always the same one. Ahh the little things in life, if this Santa only knew how easy he makes my life.
