Christmas 2010

Sam awoke at 4:30 (am people!) to ask me if Santa came yet. We were done opening presents by 6:00 (am people!) (still dark outside)....then began the feat of putting them all together.

and playing with all the goodies....this was followed by the most amazing sunrise!

Even Nature will Cry Out...

Christmas morning sunrise.....

Jesus Christ is Born! Thank you for this magnificent reminder!

Little men

I have been reaping the benefits of my sister's camera!!! It is like I got a present too! These little boys are the shining light in my life....(get ready for mushy)...
I was sitting in church today with one of these guys on my lap and the other right next to me, and I began thinking how much they mean to me. What an incredible gift they are from my Heavenly Father and what an incredible responsibility I feel to raise them to the best of my ability. Yesterday was such a boy day to me in this family. Some days, I just can't wrap my head around what is is like to be a little boy...never sitting still...NEVER!...immediately going for the dirt in my good clothes just to have a laugh...thinking that anything having to do with bodily functions is jolly, roll on your belly funny! But I don't have to understand them, I just have to love them unconditionally and let them know I will always be here for them if they need me. Just like Jesus loves me. Merry Christmas to my little men...I love you!
