Christmas 2019

Christmas just snuck up on us this year... and as quickly as it arrived, it departed. It's become a sweet time of rest for us in this house. Lots of hustle and bustle usually comes with this beautiful day, the day of our Savior's birth... but over the years, learning to find rest and savor this day, has been life giving.

These are the things I want to remember:

- This was the year of the "sleeping bag"... every little received one, in hopes that they'll be used for future family camping trips!

-  Finn received his VERY FIRST Lego set... EVER. Dad put most of it together.

-  Dad implemented a rule, "When you're done opening a present, put the wrapping in the cardboard box (so we could just do a quick burn outside of it)"... Jo was the only one to follow said rule.

-  Jo was into opening everyone else's presents for them...

-  Mable just wanted to play with every gift she opened, instead of opening more and more.

-  Charlotte is obsessed with dolphins, hence many dolphin "things".

-  Charlotte and Marley received a "joint" present (a mini polaroid camera) and totally used up all the film in one day.

-  Marley created a crafting box... she declared it, "The best present for her crafting heart... EVER!"

-  We went to our favorite local beach to grab some fresh air... it's become a tradition over these last few years, and it did not disappoint. No red starfish sightings this year... maybe next year.

Pin It!
