Merry Christmas Ya'll!!!!!!!!!
Isn't she ADORABLE? This is a picture we took of my little cutie, Belle, in front of our Christmas tree.
I look back today at the wonderful Christmas we had this year. This year we kept it simple. Not overboard in presents, just enjoying the company of each other. We spent most of the day just talking and laughing. No hustle and bustle of rushing around to parties or cleaning up the toy packaging (If you've heard "Toy Packaging" by Sarah Groves you know what I mean ;D)
My dad and I were able to finish a 550 piece puzzle given to me by a friend with the every now and then assistance from my mom (Unfortunately, my sister wasn't feeling very well, and she has a cold now. Bummer, right? I feel so sorry for her)It was amazing. A puzzle? Amazing? Well, I don't VERY often get to just sit down and have some fun with my dad, so it was one of the best Christmas presents I could dream up. We just talked about the puzzle, and not much else. But he was talking about how much patience I had to do it and how good I was at puzzles, and if ya'll know, getting a compliment from someone makes one blush, but getting a compliment from a family member make one just glow, even if it was about something small like a puzzle.
Pretty much a non-materialistic Christmas. I've got to say that it was the best one I've ever had. Anyway, I have everything I need, right?
So, from our home to yours, have a very Merry Christmas. May your lives be filled with the peace and joy of our Savior's birth as you spend time with your family and friends.
May God Bless You This Wonderful Day,
