on the third day of Christmas...

my true love gave to me... 

A qu-iet Christmas Eve.  ;-)  Funny enough, our new neighborhood lights luminaries on Christmas Eve, which was lovely.  Funny enough, we actually got to attend Christmas Eve service at our own home church, which hasn't happened in many years, ever??

Our quiet Christmas Eve which was surprisingly full- in all the right ways.

James sitting up with the kids listening to the Christmas story at service.

And surprise!  Our kind-hearted baby sitter bringing gifts to our boys (&us!) on Christmas Eve.  Who could have ever known that the Lord would provide us such a special friend.

Aaahh, the wrapping & setting out the gifts.  Mommy got a little tired & luckily was able to finish up in the am before the boys woke up.  Oh the anticipation the I had while I waited for them to see the good gifts we had chosen to give them.  Can't help the imagery there of our heavenly father- if we give good gifts to our children, how much more so does he desire to give us??
