Christmas Memories

Christmas 2008

Clockwise, from left corner: Christian pauses from making an ornament at the junior youth Christmas party. Emma sings carols with her preschool class. Mary Ashley opens her present during her preschool gift exchange, excited to discover something on her wish list: a diary with a key. Carson and Christian open gifts on Christmas morning. Posing with cousins on Christmas Day (eager to open gifts). Posing with cousins on Christmas Eve (eager to open gifts). Caitlin discovers a cutie in the mirror Aunt Jennifer gave Mary Ashley. Our family's newest gift from heaven: Kadence.

Center: A kids-eye view of the treasures to be discovered on Christmas morning.

Beautiful children!! By the way, can you tell me if you purchased your playhouse (that you posted about last January) or if you had it built?

Melissa, this is so lovely! I love the way you make these collages. Hope I spelled that correctly! ;-)

We spent so many Christmases with our cousins, and it always made it special. I love how close your children are, not only to each other, but to their cousins. And each picture is as precious as the next. Thanks for sharing with us!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Nothing better than cousin time...

I SO hope that something comes out of your contest. You are so gifted, and that comes out often....not just for contests. :)
