This Christmas was a good one for our family. While there were moments of stress for Mama, it all came together and we especially enjoyed our Advent book tradition, that helps us focus on Jesus. Finances have been tight, but the Lord delivered our adoption tax credit just in time for Christmas. I made many of the gifts we gave, so that saved on money too, and made the gifts more special.
After Grammi’s house, we went home and had our traditional Christmas Ever slumber party in front of the tree, starting around midnight (yes we were a little off schedule!). Followed by a yummy french toast breakfast, a few more gifts at home, and then packing to head to Oregon. On the way we stopped at my aunts house, and then again at Keith aunt and uncle’s house in Portland. We finally made it to Gramma’s around 10 pm. The next morning we had another Christmas.
This Christmas we were constantly reminded of the blessing that our family and friends are in our lives. God has given us so much and we praise Him for his generosity and goodness to us!
