Christmas Day

Dawn on Christmas morning and baby Jesus has finally made His appearance into the manger.

Sipping my coffee by sunrise and waiting for the girls to wake up.

So sweet… She totally saw but bypassed the new bikes and went straight to the Nativity to see if baby Jesus was there. “He’s there, mommy!”

Faith tries out her new bike.

Uncle Ben was also with us when the girls received their first bikes at 3 years old.

Opening stockings…

They love beef jerky and pistachios.

She’s always wanted a pair of handcuffs.

Make your own Snuggie… a gift from one of Morgan’s clients.

This was a sweet coupon book Faith made for me. It included hair brushing and nail painting. :)

Another gift I got from the girls. Some of their precious rocks and gems. :)

The perfect age to enjoy all the wonder and excitement of Christmas!

Good Morning and Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

The girls have been riding their little 16 inch bikes ever since they were 3 years old. We knew it was time for a big girl bike, complete with kickstand. Although we could’ve waited until their birthday (in March), that would have only given them a few months to ride before our scorching summer months.

We typically don’t buy much for the girls at Christmas but this was really was the perfect time to present them with their new bikes!

And YES, they’ve been riding everyday!

I can’t believe another Christmas has come and gone already. We thank the Good Lord for all the precious moments we spent-- in preparation for His coming and celebrating His birth with our loved ones. Indeed, a very Merry Christmas!!
