Merry Christmas!

I hope you had a very Merry Christmas!  We did!  We went to Dallas to spend Christmas with my family - My Mom and Daddy, Sister, Emommy & Pappa!  It was wonderful to have so many of our loved ones together.  We just missed Edaddy and Aunt Cinny so much!  He is still in the hospital trying to recover from his surgery.  He is not doing well.  Could you please pray for him?  Thank you so very much.

Here are some pictures from the weekend!
Hubby and me before Christmas Eve Service.  We didn't go to Christmas Eve Service growing up, probably because we were always traveling across the country to our Grandparent's houses.  But this would have been the first year of his whole life that Hubby wouldn't have gone to Church on Christmas Eve, so my whole family, for the first time ever, went to Christmas Eve Service together.  It made me so happy.

Me and My Sister

Bandit was worn out from all of the excitement!  He and Hubby watch TV together like this every evening.  I'm worried about what will happen to this time when the baby comes!

Our little baby's first Christmas gift from my parents.  It is a Noah's Arc book.  Thanks Gigi and Bud!

My sister made each of us picture collages from throughout the years.  They are so sweet and beautiful!  Here is Mom opening hers.

Our baby boy gave everyone bibs with their names on them. They were a hit : )  I think Aunt Vallie was the most excited of all!

Grandpa Bud decided to wear his :)

My cutie Pappa

My Sweet Emommy.  She is having such a hard time remembering things, and physically, she cannot even stand or get out of her chair alone.  It is very sad and very trying on her and my parents.  Please pray for all of them while they go through this time.

Bandit sleeping with his reindeer that Santa brought him.  He had too much Christmas fun!

My parent's gave us this beautiful frame for the baby's first year.  Isn't it beautiful?  I am so proud to have it.

Here is the box that my sister made me.  I will treasure it forever! 






My Mom's tree.  Isn't it amazing?!  I aspire to have a Christmas just like hers someday - haha!

She wraps the best presents!

I love her bows.  She said she started making special bows years and years ago when she used to get her presents wrapped at Rich's department store and they used ornaments in their bows.  I never knew that until this year!


This pink beauty was for me!


Love the peacock one.

Her mantle

She made this garland.  I can't wait until we have a mantle in our home so she can make one for us!


I love all her little details!

I hope you had a wonderful family filled with the Magic of Christmas, God's Love, Family & Friends.

Happy Birthday Jesus!

Michelle,
I looks like you had a beautiful Christmas! I love your mothers wrapping. She needs to do a demo for us next year on your blog! Ha. I have a similiar picture frame for Cole's first year too. It's neat to see how much he has changed in just a few short months. You are going to have so much fun with your little guy. I just wanted to wish you a Happy New Year! I hope and know with the expectant arrival of your son that 2011 will bring you lots of love, happiness and peace!
Love, Tiffany
