After all of Santa fun, it was time to get dressed for Church! The girls look so cute (I am a little biased). I was able to get a few really sweet photos of them all pressed, dressed, and ready for Mass! It took some work to get them to smile though! 🙂
The angel of the lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone all around them, and they were struck with great fear. The angel said to them, “Rejoice! Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all people. For today in the city of David a Savior has been born for you who is the Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests”
Luke 2: 9-14
Merry Christmas to all of you who are celebrating the wondrous birth of the Lord this day! I hope that you have had a wonderful day full of blessing, joy, peace, and family! We had a very full and busy day that was full of family time and gifts! 🙂 The girls started out with Santa’s gifts that spilled out of their stockings! Bunny has been waiting for so long for Santa to come and he finally did! They were not disappointed (I was though in my camera settings! I took my hubbie’s newer one a few weeks ago and I just haven’t figured out the right settings! Argh!). They loved everything! Bunny got everything that she asked Santa for (a stuffed elephant and a sewing basket) plus a little more! They both got some wooden dishes (from Apple n’ Amos) and they also got some candy. Pup also got a stuffed kitty, a pair of sunglasses (Melissa and Doug), and a matching game from Apple n’ Amos. They loved it all and loved seeing that Santa ate the cookies, drank the milk, and fed the reindeer the 9 carrots we left out for them (Bunny wanted to feed each reindeer)! Here are a few of the good pictures I got of them!
Getting the sockings!
“Green Gum” her favorite!
Just the elephant she wanted!
Sunglasses! She wore thses all day!
Pup took this one for us! She is pretty good huh?
We tried the timer and it works well! Now if everyone will smile! 😉
After mass we were off to my in laws house for dinner and gifts and then we stopped at my grandparent’s house! It was crazy, busy, and fun! 🙂 Tomorrow we will be shopping for a new oven (My died after I baked my last cookie), painting the playroom, cleaning the house (it looks like a bomb went off here), and finding a place for all the new gifts! With that I want to wish you a Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
