WAIT! I'm not finished with Christmas yet!! We have only hours left until the new year and I'm grasping the last few moments to share our Christmas with you!
This little Joy Guru made the season especially bright!
Doing a Jesse Tree has become one of my favorite traditions. I use Ann Voskamp's Advent devotional, The Greatest Gift to number the days and to stay mindful of the love story woven for us since the beginning of time. Such a wonderful reminder of why I love Christmas!
Decorating for any season is a love of mine. We kept things much simpler and baby friendly for our curious crawler!
We kept soft ornaments near the bottom of the tree ...
... and replaced the Willow Tree Nativity that normally sits on the bottom shelf with this Little People Nativity.
It was magical watching my daughter introduce Jax to his first Christmas and I was so blessed to get to be a part of it!
We bundled up for the Christmas parade ...
|Grandpa's Star Wars float|
... watched his mommy's first Pax de Duex ...
... and turned 9 months old!
Christmas morning was as exciting as you can imagine! Celebrating Jesus' birthday with family - what else could one ask for?
Here, in the final hours of 2015, may we smile at this years victories and reflect on how we have grown from the hard things. Let us look forward with hope and joy for the coming year and may it be so, so blessed!
