Happy 2012th Birthday Jesus!

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!

This is our lil fam at the One Church {Conway} Christmas Eve service.

My girls had been telling me they reeeeeally wanted it to snow on Christmas. {Every Christmas movie talks about a white Christmas...} Since we live in central AR it's rare for it to snow here soooo, Matt and I made it "snow" on Christmas morning. {aka chunking plastic & foam snowflakes all over the house} They thought it was great. But we All know, God's MUCH better at this stuff...snow

YEP! It snowed Christmas night! White flakes, power outage, and sledding, oh my.

Happy Birthday, Jesus Party complete with chocolate chip pancakes, chocolate milk, balloons, singing, and candles!!!
Oh, and of course we gave gifts to Jesus {via World Vision}.

Then we got to give gifts to one another.IMG_9846

We let the kids "shop for parents" this year. Each kid got to experience choosing a thoughtful {inexpensive gift}, keeping a surprise, and then the joy of watching them open it.

We also ask them for ideas for gifts for one another. That was fun to give the kids a gift from their siblings. IMG_9913 IMG_9915 IMG_9908
We gave the kids credit for the "Hottest Gift of the Season" ;o)

Look out Allume! My hubby surprised me by sending me in Oct 2013!!! Already have my ticket!
