Some Christmas Celebration Highlights

Our family celebrated Christmas yesterday at our home. I put together a brunch with some really great recipes that I found in my Farm Chicks cookbook. Everyone enjoyed them so you might like to check it out one day. Our youngest daughter brought along a great DVD for the children that tells the Christmas story. And of course there were gifts. But we all mostly give gifts to the children in the family. Jeff and I do get one nice gift for our daughters, usually something they need or have wanted and have been unable to get for themselves. Not much extravagances around here. My camera decided to act up of course and there were a lot of blurry pictures for some reason. I do not usually have that problem. But here is a sampling of the kids fun. I think I will have to do two posts so it does not get to long because we had eight children here with seven of them aged 4 and under. But what fun we had!









Anticipation.













Natalie, Savannah and Zaiden.






I think Ethan must be receiving a present what do you think?












My Mom in Law, Ethan, Lucas (our youngest).

Aunt Samantha got at her all
night black Friday shopping at
Walmart.

































Son in law and Lucas.
















We are all praying for healing of this little guy. We just found out about three months ago that he has Neuraofibromatosis. He had a CAT scan in October and there were no tumors at that time but his parents have not been able to find a local neurologist for pediatrics yet. So we are still waiting for diagnosis on what they did find.








Lucas.











And of course Ladybug at the end of a very tiring day. I think I could have crawled in right beside her if there was any room for me!














If you noticed the little monster stuffed toy Lucas had in his lap I plan on posting about them next time along with a few other pictures. My oldest daughter always makes the children some really cute things. Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas week!

Hi Brenda, what a bunch of cuties you have there! They could really keep you on your toes! I will keep little Lucas in my prayers. He's a darling little guy.
Brenda your comment on the Bible Study post, is a huge blessing to me. It is doing for you, what it has done for me. Keep me in the Word, and studying, not just reading. So thank you, dear Brenda. You are one of those that God had in mind when this was started. Thank you for the support you have given me! Have a wonderful Merry Christmas!
love,
Debra

I'm praying for that adorable little boy and his parents too. May God bring information, a great doctor and most of all, healing.

Great event. I'm sorry to hear about Lucas. I'll put him on my prayer list. What a worry for everyone. And I love the name Zaiden. I've never seen that before.
