Christmas Presence




Do you ever feel let down once Christmas gets here?  I do.  Not let down in the sense that I did not get enough gifts or I had a bad day, but let down that it is over.  We look so forward to Christmas and plan it for months, and decorate for days, and cook non stop and then all the sudden it is over.  I really do love this holiday.  I love how it brings out the best in people (most of the time).  I want to share some of our special moments this holiday season.  They are in no particular order.









We pray that you had an awesome holiday and that you were able to love the ones you were with.  I am thankful for you, for all your encouragement through out the year.  We think of you often. 


Reading "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and "Christmas in the Manger".
BellaRose was such a good helper with some homemade holiday gifts.  It is good to be momma's assistant.

I know what you mean--I always feel a little down just after Christmas. And I'm really dreading taking down all the decorations.
Your family pictures are so sweet. I love the family storytime.

Although from different places, but this perception is consistent, which is relatively rare point!
