The Night Before Christmas..

We had our little family party on Christmas Eve.

We started out the night with the Christmas Eve service at Ridge Point and then headed home to eat dinner.

I read the Christmas Story out of Grayden’s Bible and then we opened gifts!

We started the tradition last year by giving Grayden 3 gifts to open, because baby Jesus was given 3 gifts by the wise men, we always want to be reminded of the reason we celebrate Christmas and get gifts in the first place. Plus as you’ve seen by now, Grayden was very blessed with lots of new toys from his Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. So we went simple.

And he has plenty of toys already (this is only half of them)

(we’ve since gone through and eliminated!)

But anyways, here is our handsome boy so excited to open presents!IMG_9694

We had a great night but our hearts were missing our little Brenham more than ever, how we wish we could celebrate these holidays and everyday with him and his little brother as a family of 4.

My heart breaks for you and Rob, as I know you are missing Brenham terribly bad. I continue to miss our Christian as well and suppose I always will.

On a happier note, looks like Grayden thoroughly enjoyed his Christmas. I'm loving the potty...cute!

Happy New Year and Prayers always
