A complete Christmas

Lots of cocoa...
Recipe planning...
Time in the kitchen...
Clowning around...
Our family had a wonderful Christmas, and I hope you did, too! The last several days we have been taking it easy and spending time playing together. It is so nice to have a break from our regular routine. The kids have been staying up very late at night watching Christmas movies and munching on goodies. Late nights mean they have much-later-than-usual waking times, but that's what vacation days are for. ;) Lots of smiles, lots of laughter, lots of time together. Deep conversations, too, with a certain seven year old who was so excited to celebrate Jesus' birthday, but can't quite understand that He isn't a certain number of years old. I love to see the wheels turning in her head. I also love hearing my children wish Him a happy birthday and tell their Heavenly Father how glad they are that He sent His Son to die for their sins. That made my Christmas complete.

Beautiful.
My girls, although older now at 15 and 10, still insisted I bake our Happy Birthday Jesus dessert! Of course I did and it gladdened my heart. unfortunatley I couldnt' eat any until sat because after our xmas eve service I was hit with some kind of stomach flu on top of my already raging headcold...so....I stuck to water and bananas on xmas day! BUT...there is nothing like vacation days from school/teaching to get us all on the mend and to have fun playing together...my kids are doing the same kinds of things your children are...and i love it!

awww...you're making me a little misty here...I've been praying so much for your little ones that I feel attached in some way; and to hear about their soft hearts and growing affection for the Lord just makes me overflow with gratitude too.

He is infinity years old! How cute!

We also had some very relaxing days for Christmas with our little family. What a blessing! It was so good to have my hubby home for five whole days and we're looking forward to that again this week as we bring in the coming year.

By the way, Happy New Year!

Thanks for your words on my blog.

I have a 7 yr. old who has lots of deep questions too. I am amazed every day at how her mind works. She is a deep thinker. She is also very curious and sensitive to spiritual things.

We have also had lots of late nights watching Christmas movies and late mornings in our pj's.

I'm so glad you had (are having) such an enjoyable Christmas season together. It is so refreshing to hear of others keeping the main focus on Christ and family while talking about more than just presents! Yet another reason to be a Christian -- this time of year is so much more satisfying and meaningful. :o)

It looks like you had a very wonderful Christmas with your family.

I do like to be organized too (your post above) and have some lists of my own :) I have always been a list maker and my mother is NOT. She has teased me for my whole life.

I love to really dig in and clean deeply after Christmas. It feels good to have all the clutter put away doesn't it?

Have a Happy New Year, Mrs. C!!
