Christmas 2007

Can you tell she loves her little brother?

This year, we had a very quiet, but extremely fun Christmas. We certainly missed seeing all of our extended family, but to be quite honest, this had to be one of the best Christmases ever. Nothing can compare to the joy and excitement on your own child's face during the Christmas season. There was an added dimension of energy in our house that started on December 1 when we pulled the Advent calendars out! And it really didn't stop until they went back to school in January.

In preparation of Christmas, we decorated the house, we baked 8 different kinds of cookies and candies, we welcomed "Jimmy" the Christmas elf into our home, thanks to the Tyrrell family, Will made bird houses for all of the neighbors, we visited "Bethlehem" where we learned all about life there at the time that Jesus was born, we went to a Moravian Love Feast at Emma's school where she sang lots of beautiful songs, Will sang in the church choir on Christmas Eve, we shopped, we wrapped and ended it all with a huge celebration on Christmas morning.

Quite simply, nothing can compare to the innocence, belief, joy and excitement that children bring to Christmas.
