Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

Christmas 2009

Here is little Levi opening his gift from the Grants and Gruncles. This was on Christmas Eve and he was up way past his bedtime so he really didn't know what was going on. The kids draw names at Thanksgiving to see who they will buy a gift for on Christmas. This seems to be one of their favorite things to do. Chreighton drew Brecken's name this year.
The girls bought me an electric griddle and as you can see I was pretty excited.
Levi loves Big bird. We thought he would be so excited about this gift but he was not that impressed. he kept calling big bird Momo(Elmo).
Christmas morning. Look at my major bed head.
Christmas Eve we sang carols after our Advent story.
The girls received tickets for the Little House on the Prairie play and Emily was the first one to figure out what the tickets were for. She was just a little bit excited.
Here is Levi on Christmas eve waiting for dinner. He found something to snack on while we were all looking the other way.

Brecken always plays the shepherd boy for the Nativity play. Here she is practicing.I found the girls upstairs watching the snow from their bedroom window. Memories I hope to hold dear to my heart for many years.
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas.

You are definately blessed and oh my goodness ~ Levi looks just like his Daddy!!!! Where did you go in that equation?

Your kiddos always look like little butterballs as babies, then they shoot-up to be tall, linky things!

Get rid of that chocolate and fast! Of course, I mean eat it, quickly :o)
