Merry Christmas!

We celebrated Christmas today with our hearts full...we really have so many things to be thankful for and so often take much of that for granted. Although the children are small, we really emphasized that today was Jesus' birthday. They understood to a degree but then the toys are always a deterrent. We will keep working on that in the years to come. My parents were in Atlanta this year with my sister but Matt's family came over to Ruston from Bossier. Jake and Landry Grace are the only grands on his side and we were blessed with their company today.

Jake got up before 6:30 and would have gone back to sleep with us but I was eager to see the excitement in their faces so I reminded him it was Christmas morning. From there we went and woke up his sister who was DEAD to the world....hated waking her up but it's only once a year. It was a fun day but not without a few meltdowns along the way.

Overall it was a wonderful day as we celebrated the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Enjoy the pictures.

Jake's stash....he wanted Landry Grace to stay away but of course opened up her one present that was wrapped. Go figure.....

Landry Grace's gifts from Santa. She was more into brother's gifts this morning....can't win for trying!
Picture of the day! Love this shot. Don't you love the milk drool?
Singing Happy Birthday to Jesus before breakfast.
Quick smile before the Tyler's arrived.
Round 2 of presents.......
Landry doesn't look too thrilled but do not be fooled, we all love our dear Aunt Lou!!!!

Merry CHRISTmas to all and to all a good night!
