Christmas 2011

Not sure if many know... but we actually celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. It's a tradition I grew up with (totally the Germany side of me), and it's a tradition that the hubby had NO problem joining in on. We still have a wonderful Christmas day... but the gifts are all opened on the Eve. We spend Christmas Day reflecting on Christ... snuggling/cuddling/relaxing... and Charlotte LOVED every moment of this sweet arrangement. She doesn't understand everything, but that doesn't mean we don't explain it to her over and over again... one day she will.

1 John 5:11
"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son."

Sometimes playing with the wrapping, is way more fun than the actual present... especially if it resembles her "glasses"...

Grammy "D" this is how Charlotte REALLY feels about the elf...

Christmas morning, the little one slept until 8:15... came downstairs, got ready for church, and played with her new toys. She just adores everything, and even more so, her new dress, and first time wearing tights.

Pin It!
