Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! Tony and I are making breakfast for the kids (homemade cinnamon rolls, eggs, juice, toast and sweet breads) then we are going to hang out in our pjs, drink some delicious coffee compliments of the Lindsay family! The kids have some new games and puzzles to play and we always watch the Nativity movie. Later on I am making fresh salmon and rolls and we are going to continue doing next to nothing except hang out together and chill! This is where we make the best memories together. The kids will bake a birthday cake for Jesus and we will sing happy birthday to Him. I am loving vicariously living thru my kids as we celebrate the real reason of the season!

Children Mass

Not to appear bias all the children did marvelous! Not a dry eye in the church!
But, I must brag for one moment...when we arrived we were informed that julia's drawing was chosen for the cover of the bulletin! It was beautiful and precious to see the children do the nativity story. Blaise was a bit shy at first and shed a few tears but in the end he stuck it out and even smiled and gave us the thumbs up thru out the mass. As we drove home the kids were all a buzz at how much fun it was and how they couldn't wait until next year to do it all again.

Letter to our kids

Dear Julia, Emerson, Blaise, and Benedict,
Daddy and I started this blog to record our memories of you guys and journal our hopes and dreams for you guys. Tomorrow people will open up presents of iPads, laptops, beer of the month, toys and wii games. Some will be searching for the ultimate gift to fill some deep need internally. Their will be a few small things under our tree for all of you but never forget the greatest present you will receive which was the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ! You won't need a gift receipt, or batteries and you won't have to worry if it fits. It is truly the greatest gift ever and should never be replaced by a box with some material possession inside. Daddy and I love you all very much and hope and pray every Christmas eve you will remember this letter. If you should happen to forget just remember Mommy always has a healthy dose of mother's love and a pinch of guilt to help you remember! Merry Christmas my loves!
