We had a wonderful little Christmas around here. The kids got all they wanted, plus more. We enjoyed spending time with family the weekend before Christmas, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Olivia's favorite gift was her Barbie Cruise Ship. Daniel would say his bicycle and his Thomas trains. Jeff and I enjoyed watching them experience everything Christmas.
The best parts as parents - seeing the look on Olivia's face when Santa knew what she wanted, where she was from and who her teacher was! AND the look on her face when she and Daniel got a little coal in the toe of her stocking.
My kids were in Cousin Aimee's wedding this weekend. Let's just say it was HUGE! See for yourself...
Daniel wasn't too interested in the wedding, didn't really like the tuxedo. Didn't want his picture made with the wedding party. Even fell asleep when it was his time to walk down the aisle...guess who carried him in?
Olivia did beautifully! She was the perfect little flower girl.
The ladies over at Internet Cafe Devotions are hosting a FREE giveaway. Those participating are listing free gifts for the Christmas season. I decided to get involved with a "JOY" necklace and a little Arbonne Body Lotion. If you would like to enter, just leave a comment and tell me a new tradition your family is trying this year.
If you have never been to the Cafe, go over and take a peek. I try to read the devotions every morning - if it's not too hectic around the house. All of the ladies have wonderful devotionals to share.
Also, there are tons of other giveaways here. Winners are announced on December 12.
I am a Christian mother of 2 wonderful kids and wife to a marvelous man, Jeff. My kids are Olivia, age 9, and Daniel, age 6. I teach business in a high school, which is one adventure after another! I enjoy crafts, scrapbooking and learning from all of the wonderful bloggers out there!
