Christmas Time

Christmas time was full of firsts for us this year.

  First pair of Christmas pj's on Christmas eve.
First time Santa came to our house.

Annaleigh was surprisingly into all of her presents.  

  She especially liked her light up rubber ducky.
 And her little talking bunny.
 First time (tired) parents on Christmas morning. :0)

It was also the first time my mom had to work on Christmas day. 
So, we decided to go spread some Jesus love and Christmas cheer at the long term care facility that she works at on Christmas afternoon.  
I am so glad that we decided to go.  It really took the focus off of the material side of Christmas and helped us focus more on Jesus.  More than anything we want to teach Annaleigh to love like Jesus, and it makes my heart smile knowing she brought joy to others on her very first Christmas.  
All day I just kept praising and thanking Him for all of the blessings he has given us this year.  We are truly blessed beyond words.
