Celebrating Christmas...{2015}

Stepping back a few weeks to Christmas and the last week of 2015...

Loving his pecan pie on our Christmas Eve...

Our Christmas was different this year as we returned from Ohio just a couple days before hand {see previous post [smile]}.  We enjoyed making memories through three Christmases this year! 




The lil' mommy had presents for her babies...


Discovering treasures in his stocking!


Who wants to open gifts by yourself when there's an eager lil' man to help?




Opening new doll dresses...




And a new baby!  


Yay for "Colorado with the Moodys"!






There's lots of presents to go around, and it's so fun to see everyone's reactions to their gifts!






Painting...


Drew building his new model with onlookers, of course! [smile]


Christmas dinner (At lunchtime)


Enjoying the trike at our aunt and uncle's that night!


Impromptu duets - such fun!


Christmas music on the porch on Christmas day!


Sweet uncle chillin' with some nieces!


Carson gets a workout!


Cousin fun!




Little mommies were ever busy in the girls room the Saturday after Christmas...


We enjoyed our time with family that day!

Dinner at Cracker Barrel thanks to someone's generosity!

Seeing the lights downtown afterwords...


Candlelit dinner at Grandaddy and Grandma's - enjoying great times with family!
We're so thankful for the Lord's blessings surrounding this past Christmas season!  How blessed we are that Jesus came to save us from our sin! I love these verses from Luke 1 and find them to be a fitting finish to this post:
 "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,  And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;The oath which he sware to our father Abraham, That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear, In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life."
