Christmas 2011

What a Christmas!  We were totally blessed in so many ways...

We started off our Christmas Eve with our traditional "Jesus Birthday Cake".  Let's just say that this year's one was way more edible than last years disaster...



On Christmas Day and Boxing Day, we spent time with our precious family.  We were especially blessed to share our Christmas with Dad Drake who we nearly lost (well, actually did for a moment there) just last week.




There was crazy shenanigans in the back yard...


Beautiful cousins having photos together...


The annual Christmas family skype photo (last year's here)...


 And many more family photos...




For some reason this year felt extra special... the sense of togetherness was so much more appreciated.


I am feeling so full (and not just tummy wise).

Family is so precious, people are so special... and I love that fact that God Himself became a person to bring hope and love to this hurting world.  You are so loved and precious.

Happy Christmas everyone!!!

    Such a good roundup PJ. I loved catching up on the posts I missed. How amazing that you're going to be senior pastors in your church - you are going to be A for Awesome (or is that O for Ohrsome??)
