Merry Christmas!

Yes, I know it should say Happy New Year, but I'm about a week behind.  I wanted to post a few pictures from Christmas and then I'll move to our New Year's celebration.

We were blessed to have my parents come up and spend Christmas with us!  We loved having them here and had a great time with them.  We went to our church's service on Christmas Eve. 

Eliana was delighted with the candle.  It made me a little nervous.  lol

A photo after church and before our meal and opening of the traditional Christmas Eve gift - pajamas. 

Here are some photos of Christmas day.

The excitement of a new pocketknife!

A new science kit with "lab experiments".  Isaiah loved it and wanted to do one right away.  (We did.)

My Mom and Dad with scrapbook pages that I made for them.

One of the new games we received is fun for all.

Eliana's gift was a doll stroller and crib.  She loved it. 

We received several new Wii games this year and everyone is having fun playing them!

We had a mostly relaxing day spent with people we love.  We are thankful for the gifts, but more thankful for the most precious gift of our Saviour!  Hoping your Christmas was filled with love, laughter and the presence of the One who gave the greatest gift of all.

With love,



  1. Thanks for sharing your Christmas pics. Looks like your family had a good one. We also love going to the Candlelight Service at our church on Christmas Eve.

    It looks like a wonderful Christmas. All your pictures are beautiful but I really like the one with Joshua opening the pocket knife. His excitement is so great.



  3. Hey Leslie,

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too.! It is amazing that you have found time to post as much as you have during the holidays, and I am glad that I have been able to "catch up" on reading about your sweet family. Tomorrow we are back to our normal, rushed routine, but for today I'm going to enjoy the calmness of the morning and make a few more holiday memories with my boys. I love all the pictures of your family, and your mom and dad look amazing! I pray God's blessings and favor upon you for the new year!

    With much love,


  4. Oh, these are wonderful Christmas pics Leslie!! What a special time with family! I love the thoughtfulness with which you picked out each of your dc's ornament for this year. What a lovely tradition!
