faces of happiness

tutu...need i say more
{thanks jmjf}

my bro jeremy, modeling his new oven mitts my mom bought him

yep...that's paige...the "best" shot of the day

nana and two of her girlies

papa loving little sofia

oh my...it's a horse!!!!!
{this is to prove to you that brooke can sit still every now and then}

my sweet niece, shelby...a total ham!

the blabla was the BIG hit for jada!!! 

one of these days i need to get that girl to stop sucking her thumb
{i hate to admit it, but she's kinda cute when she does it}

christmas eve...i can't believe i got a pic of paige...she is NOT covering her face...and it's out of focus.  grrrrrr....

b's imitation of mary on the donkey on her way to bethleham...

sweet little sofia...serious

when the day was done, ryan said something that was really a great reminder.  at some point, no matter what happens, no matter what gift you get, no matter who is around and who has passed away, no matter where you live and who you are, jesus was born on christmas and that remains the same.  his love, his grace, his peace and his life, death and resurrection, we celebrate and are so thankful for.  because, in spite of ourselves, jesus always remains the same.  and that, my dear friends, is a very good thing.

I am so loving you last few posts. I videos are awesome, especially Sofie. I am so glad that you all had a great Christmas. And that is beautiful, the things that your hubby said.

Amen!!!

And you got a picture of Paige... I was wondering if she just kept her whole face covered at all times awaiting you juming out with a camera....

Those faces are all precious!!!

Love the entire post from top to bottom. And I'm even a little jealous of Jada's BlahBlah doll but I'm thinking sharing may not be an option. LOL

So happy you all had a Merry Christmas, your family is beautiful and you got some great shots!
