The kids probably get weary of Mommy and her camera during the holidays. There are so many photo opportunities, and I just can't pass them by! So some of my pictures include squirmy little angels!
This was right after our Christmas Eve service--the first one (6pm), that is. Our church also has an 11pm service with communion, so it is usually well after midnight before Mark is home on Christmas Eve (I guess that is officially Christmas Day). Fortunately Santa was already taken care of by the time he got home around 12:30 am--not too much assembly required for this year's Santa goodies (unlike a few years in the past!), so I was able to take care of it myself, with some help from my mom.
Nothing warms my heart more than a good picture with my kids and/or Mark. And this one will go down as one of my very favorites! A few months before Christmas, I found these cute snowman sweaters for Hannah and me to wear--our first "matching" outfit. I could hardly wait! I can remember as a girl seeing other moms and daughters dressed in precious matching outfits at Christmas Eve services and dreaming of the day that my daughter and I would dress alike. That day has finally come.
God is so good. We are so blest in so many ways.
