Packed with Christmas Cheer

Hello blog buds! I don't know about you, but I am all a titter with Christmas joy!!!

I am having a blast prepping for this Christmas season. The kids are so stinking adorable in their anticipation, wonder, and hope for the arrival of baby Jesus to our meager little manger.

Of course, I just HAVE to share some precious Christmas pics of the family (admit it, I know you want to pinch my kids' cheeks!!!).

OH, and soon to come: Christmas Home Decor Pictures!! Stay tuned!!!

One last thing:
At Christmas, especially in America, our blessings stretch beyond what we could ask for. Yes, at our home we have smiles on our faces, and an abundance of Christmas cheer. But, make no mistake! Our Christmas joy comes from One source alone!
It is He.
He who was born in a manger so long ago.
He who came to save.
Jesus is the Only Thing Worth Walking Toward.
At Christmas time.
For Always.

15 friends had a thing or two to say...:

Oh, these are so sweet! And the poor little guy cried on Santa's lap! That's one reason we don't have any pics on Santa's lap...

Only of the dog!

Merry, merry, Darlene!

Your family is so adorable! By the time my kids stopped crying on Santas lap they were to old to have pictures with Santa any more!

Stunning family - what a blessing! Did he stop crying as soon as you took him off Santa's lap?

Those boys are just sooooo cute!!!

My oldest did not like Santa either as a toddler. The first picture we have of him smiling with Santa, he was about 8 years old!! Ha, Ha

Enjoy those babes as they are so excited for Jesus' birthday!!!
