My Faces of Christmas

We had a wonderful Christmas this year....inspite of Bill's crazy work schedule.  Some or all of my family was together beginning on Saturday straight through Christmas Day.  Joe read the story of Jesus' birth to our precious little ones, we had a fun time fellowshipping with and ministering to one another.  Gift giving was so special....the receiving was nice too! Everyone participated in the food preparation...and everything was yummy!  We did a little crafting....and lots of talking.
My only regret was we never took time from the fun to snap any group photos.  But I did get some good ones of "the littles" so that makes me happy.

Here's a peek at the faces that surrounded me this weekend....my dear family....I love them all!

Elijah with Caleb's pacifier.

C'mon girls....just a little smile.

Earmuffs!!

Christmas Eve cupcake.

Making a snowman.

Poor Caleb...he wasn't feeling good.

Love pomegranates!


Jacqi cooking some really excellent french toast.
 
Playing with the driedel.

Charlotte made a "gingerbread" house at school.
 
Plugged in....

They're all playing Angry Birds.

Doing a little crafting.

A Florida snowman.

She used every single sticker that she had.

A less ornate tree...simple and sweet.

Let the un-wrapping begin....

Caleb loved his stacking rings.

Elijah loved his hat.

Checking out the ornaments with her Daddy.

Jacqi crocheted crowns for Charlotte and her family.

G G Ma got Elijah some binoculars.

Reading a good book with momma.

The king sleeps......

The little guy eats...

Somebody's got to put together these toys!

Look at the pretty candy necklaces they made.

Fast asleep on Christmas Eve.....

Love seeing each and every face! My favorite... the KING :) what a authentic KING he looks like too. I think I saw him in a history book. I made crocheted crowns too but none for the adults.

A joy visiting with you all!
