Bill and I buy the "littles" Christmas sleepwear each year...we give them the pjs and nightgowns on Thanksgiving so they have plenty of pre-Christmas time to wear them. It's also a good day to try and get a photo of them all together...looking festive!
It's a good thing that I'm not really attached to formal, posed photos. That seldom turns out well around here....click HERE to see what I mean!
They were all tired, the light was all wrong, and, as usual, I had too many helpers (all over the room) saying "Here, look here!"
But I love these photos....I love the promise they hold. My family's future. The promise of things to come!
The three biggest "littles" are already sensing what's to come later this month. They've thought about their Christmas wishes and wants...a lot! Their warm, cozy, red & green outfits remind them...'tis the season!
They also understand the "real reason for the season"....I so look forward to the day
that they really understand just how wonderful the promise of Christmas is!
The promise...the certain Hope...of Him to come!
