Christmas 2010

This Christmas was the very first time that we spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with just our family of four. We did see Honey and GP for a bit and that was wonderful but for the most part we were here. It was odd and quiet, and sad and we missed everyone, but we needed a quiet place to worship Him this year.

Mark found this sweet little mirrored box for Ally and it has already become a treasure to her. It's so sweet how she tells all her friends that her Daddy gave it to her. SO SWEET!

Thank you Daddy

And then...SANTA!

Ally got her skates and has been a skating fool!

Christmas Day

Ready for Lunch!

and a mean game of Disney monopoly. I forgot just how long those games take.

I hope you and your family had a Merry Christmas as well.

Enjoyed all the posts! My favorite for obvious reasons is Ryan helping GP with ringing the bell. Justin was intrigued by that this year - we might have to do that soon.

Mountain Dew from Santa - is he trying to rot their teeth or make them run around like crazies? :-) What's the scoop on that?

The Lord somehow knew you guys needed a quieter Christmas, all things considered. Glad you were able to worship amongst the emotional December...
