We has a joyful, wonderful, MERRY Christmas! Here are some highlights.
We had lots of fun with all the cousins we LOVE!
We baked cookies and decorated cupcakes.
Right before bed the kids were so excited :)
Joseph was HILARIOUS, he loved opening presents and trying them out!
My sweet baby doll got a new baby doll!
Shayla loves Snow White, hummm I had no idea when I took this photo that this baby doll would inspire a hair cut and lots of mommy tears.
After presents we all sat together as I read the acts of kindness done in honor of Jonathan. I was so blessed as well as my family to receive these. It means sooooo much to me that people took time, in this very busy season to remembered my baby boy and to make me smile on Christmas. Tears of joy fell because of these letters instead of tears of sadness. Thank you my dear friends that participated it means more that you will ever know!
Christmas at Mams
Mam made Christmas super special, she is so thoughtful and sweet to us. We had fun and then a delicious Christmas dinner with only one crystal glass broken ;/
New bike fun!
THE DAY AFTER
The day after Christmas, to my horror Shayla cut her hair. I am pretty sure she was inspired by the Snow White doll and that we had just seen Rapunzel at Disney on ice. Rapunzel's hair gets cut in the end. I think she though like the show that her hair would magically come back :( I had to cut it off to her chin and add bangs and it's still not even. I think she looks cute but it breaks my heart I can no longer braid her hair.
My husband so wisely reminded me that many little girls have no hair because of very sad circumstance. I am remembering to say prayers for Daisy , Lucy and others fighting for their lives and remain thankful that I have a healthy little girl!
Christmas was a huge success! My husband said it is a month long birthday party for Jesus and man did we party :)
We were blessed, our children were blessed and we ALL BLESSED the name of the LORD! Praise God for the birth of our Savior JESUS!
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
