Christmas Blessings

It's early Christmas morning and Jeff and I just finished wrapping the last of the gifts between feeding babies. It's been a challenge to get everything together this holiday season!

Amelia, Isaac, Sam and Alex ~ Christmas 2008

We took Amelia to mass this evening while Grandma D. had some bonding time with the boys. As we listened to the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of our Savior, I thought, "What a wonderful time of year to have a baby in the house." (Or in our case, three!) A baby is a great reminder of God's gift to the world -- his Son, who arrived as a helpless infant, born poor and laid in the manger.

Today will be full of presents and laughter and squeals of delight -- probably in just a few short hours. But we will also take time to remember the birth of Jesus, who is Wonder-Counselor, God-Hero, Father Forever, Prince of Peace.

Christmas blessings to you all,

Yes, Grandma D. has been able to get some wonderful bonding time with Isaac, Alex, Sam and Amelia. (The 1:30's are especially good for bonding with Isaac, Alex and Sam.) I have had such a good time; not even as exhausting this time! Grandma Alice, I bet you are waiting to see these little guys and Amelia soon, have fun!
Happy holidays, little ones.
Love, Grandma D.
