We've been busy decking the halls, donning our gay apparel, and flat-out making merry. And let's not forget the Christmas carols. Last night, I rocked Amelia Kate to sleep while singing "Silent Night." I tell you, I could barely get through it for the tears and the emotion. There is something so tremendously and beautifully gripping to a mother holding her baby and imagining what it must have been like for Mary holding baby Jesus. Not only did she have the joy of adoring her precious son, she was adoring the Messiah. "Jesus, Lord at thy birth...." Amen!
One night last week, after Jack and Amelia had been bathed up and greased up, we surprised them by a Christmas light drive. Amelia was "sooo mex-cited!" ;o)
But that, of course, didn't mean she wanted to take pictures. I don't know what I was I thinking...
This is the 3rd year Santa has sent Elfie to check in on us ... and, my gracious, he has been into plenty of mischief this year. It's one of the highlights of our days (the babies ... and mine) to see exactly what he is into each morning. We all love Elfie. :o)
Now, we've also been elbow-deep in sugar cookie dough ... and it has been glorious!
Hope y'all are all making VERY MERRY, too!
OH! And before I forget ... I had to share one of my favorites for Christmastime!! I can (and do) listen to this song a million times over ... so good!
