Twas the night before....

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse...the stockings were all hung by the chimney with care in hopes that Saint Nicholas would soon be there!
stockings all hung..the furbabies, Emily, mommy and daddy's

cookies and milk for Santa

Emily all snug in her bed while the elves dash around "working"

mommy and daddy happy and thankful

One of my favorite parts about Christmas Eve is going to church with my family.  For me personally it touches my heart in such a way that I feel so full of love and thankfulness.  While decorating a Christmas tree is fun, baking is fun, buying and making gifts for family and friends is fun I am grateful that long, long ago God sent His one and only son Jesus not only for me but for every single one of us.  If you have not ever read the Christmas Story you should, it is amazing.  My heart goes out to anyone who for this holiday season may not know the joy and love of Jesus, family and friends. We may not know who you are or what exactly your circumstances are but we are praying for you.  Jesus really does love you!

Wishing you all a very Merry and blessed Christmas.
