Holly Jolly Christmas

We had such a fun, crazy, and busy-yet-peaceful Christmas. We celebrated with both Jason's and my family and loved every second.
 Mandy, me, Meredith, Colson, & my mom
This is our normal. ; )
Colson & Hunter
These two are 6 months apart and loved playing together.
Zach and Abby were inseparable. Their little conversations are hilarious. One night I was giving them a bath listening to them talk about Riley and how they really like dogs. 

Zach: "Abby, you used to have a dog, right? You don't have one now, but you used to?"
Abby: "No, I don't have a dog. I've never had a dog because that's what God gave us. No dogs."
They are like an old married couple. ; )
My beautiful sis, my dad & me before the Christmas Eve service

My mom stayed home with Hunter and Colson so the rest of us could go. It was such a special night! The kids did great, but about halfway through when it was very quiet Zach said, "When is it going to be over? It's taking too long!" People around us laughed thank goodness.

I love family services because we all understand how loud and unpredictable kids can be, yet it's so important to have them worship with us.
Colson opening some toys on Christmas Eve
Shannon & Westin
Cam & Trish
Santa brought Z a fish on Christmas morning. He named him Helicopter. ; )
Colson taking it all in
Zach's great grands gave him his first bike. They were so excited.
I hope you had a Merry Christmas filled with GOD's love and peace. Even when you are hurting, He knows where you are and how to protect your heart. His grace is perfect just for you.

...my heart will rejoice in Your deliverance.

Psalm 13:5
