Christmas 2012. Tesfas birthday.

Family. fun. food. blessings. gifts. the greatest gift of all.
What a blessed Christmas we had. enjoy the few pics that we managed to's a tad crazy to have the camera out & I find that if I'm really focused on taking so many photos I might miss the real wonder that is happening around, enjoy the few I have!! Hope your Christmas was delightful!!

                                                                     love this!!!!!!


                                   our precious girls & their babies:)

The day after Christmas was Tesfas birthday, so more celebrating was had at our house!! And since I'm obviously really slow with posting on this blog of mine, I'll throw in a few more pics of Tes' b-day, otherwise he'll be turning 10 by the time I post next:)

{our winter wonderland}

Oh, how I love watching our kids have fun, being their sweet, silly little selves...yesterday we woke up to a winter wonderland...our neighborhood was beautiful!!! The trees were glistening. It felt like such a cozy, Christmas-y day! Ariyat got a new winter coat, so of course she had to try it out...what better day to do it than this perfectly sun-shiny, snowy day!!! We have enjoyed receiving many Christmas cards...its always so fun to see how kids have grown each year!! The kids race to the mail box each day to see how many cards happen to be in there!!

Well, we are off to the kids' church Christmas program...a night of love & hope!!! May your days leading up to Christmas Day be blessed!! love & be loved.

                                                          Merry Christmas to you!!!!!
