CHRISTmas Celebrations

We traveled near and far, and enjoyed a lot of time at home with family and friends. The Christmas season was a blessing in many many many ways. We celebrated Jesus birthday for about a month, which He is more than deserving of, but it was tiring.  We've almost got all of the Christmas decorations stored and the boys went back to kindergarten today. It's very quite here without them, I can hardly focus. 

One of the best gifts I received this Christmas was the continual singing by the boys sweet, pure hearts/voices. Jesus' spirit shined through Ford and Graham so many times to remind me of the true joy that Jesus brings to us each and day if we allow Him to overflow through us. This year, I hope we can all be wells from which His life of living water overflows. James 4:13

We're looking forward to this New Year. Please keep us in your prayers for discernment and changes coming our way. Our home is still on the market, deciding on a school for next year, buying a new home, and not least, Nara Josette's arrival in a couple of months. Right now we are awaiting our LOA in the adoption process (Letter of Approval - to travel). As it gets closer, we're getting a little nervous, just like when we brought home each of the other little ones. Except, this time she'll be a Girl and a little older. Please continue to pray for our family, each of our hearts to be open to keep Christ at the center of our hearts and all to embrace and love one another now and after Nara Josette arrives. We're very excited - pink- her we come!  He says I've been 'nesting' for a few weeks now, I don't know what he's talking about... :-)

Sorry for not posting sooner, it's been a little busy. Here are some fun pics from our Christmas season. 

Blessings to you all through this New Year and for the little song in your hearts.

Love ~
