A few weeks ago we were invited to a Christmas party by a couple from our church, so we decided to pop by. We are so glad that we went. Not only was their home gorgeous, but Santa was there and they took photos of all the kiddos and up them up online for everyone to see...how awesome is that? I can't wait to go back next year!

Here is Eli with the big man himself. I was so proud that he didn't cry!

Here is Eli and I. I don't think Chris was really trying to take a picture of us, but of the beautiful house instead...thanks, honey.

Clearly, I was focusing on the two of them! :D

What an incredible year this has been for our family...God has been so good to us. Here is our Christmas picture from last year as we awaited our precious little gift.

And here is our little family today.

We are so incredibly blessed and we thank God for everything that He has given us.
Please take time to focus on the true meaning of this season and not get tied up in gifts and commercialism. Spend time with those you love and let them know how much you care about them. Have a very merry Christmas, everyone!

P.S. For those wondering, I have not given up my glasses and gone back to contacts. My glasses broke the day before that picture was taken...I was freaking out, but all is well and hopefully my new glasses will be in soon!
Also, I love to give credit where credit is due. Our Christmas picture this year was taken by Amanda Means. She was so kind to come and take a few pics of our family during Thanksgiving. She is a wonderful photographer from White Deer. Even though we have many, many, pictures of Eli, it is hard to get ones of the three of us. Thank you Amanda for helping us out and we are so excited to take pictures of your family soon!
