Christmas Morning. . .

I'm not sure exactly how to describe all this because I will not do it justice. There is a peace that snow brings, and when you combine snow and Christmas morning, it is just amazing. This was my first white Christmas in many years ~ since I was in first grade! I kept telling the boys, "Remember this. Look outside. We probably won't have another white Christmas for a very long time!" Erik and I slept in a little bit, and when we came downstairs, this is what welcomed us. . .



There was a fire in the fireplace, snow outside, and Cecilia all cuddled in a blanket!!!

It was wonderful, so wonderful. Here is the view from the front of their house. . .


And, here is the view from the kitchen/living room area. . .


Here is a cozy cute couple. . .
My big boys woke up before the rest of us, so they did what they always do. They wandered out of the bedroom and down the stairs. The only person awake was Kelly. When my mom got up later, this is what she found. . .



The boys got some good cuddle time with Uncle Kelly!!!

The first thing we did that morning was act out the Christmas Story. This is a family tradition. It dates all the way back to Kristin, Kelly, and I acting out the story as my Daddy read from Luke when we were little kids! Now I get to be a spectator and watch my boys act it out!!!


In case you can't tell, the cast went something like this. . . Avery was the angel. Peyton was Mary. Erik Daniel was baby Jesus. Joshua was Joseph. Lijah was a shepherd, and, JCT a wise man. . .



Next. . . playing in the snow. . .

Here in Illinois, most of our Christmas mornings are white but I never grow tired of the beautry and purity of it. I am a rarity in the midwest because I love snow. It truly takes my breath away every time I look out the window. So glad you got to eperience a white Christmas.

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
