Merry Christmas, everyone!!
The time of preparation and waiting is over!
And what a wonderful day our Lord has blessed us with!
Yesterday, our Advent Tree bloomed into a Christmas Tree!!
It’s filled with our kids Boyd’s Bear ornaments and sparkling stars, which our kids made many years ago. Our tree has been “baby proof” for several years now and I’ve grown quite fond of the paper stars and teddy bears! 😉
This morning, 3 presents  for each of our 9 kids (3 gifts each – in honor of the gifts of the Wisemen) surrounded our Christmas tree and the most important present of all lay in our wooden manger.
Jesus wore a bow and a tag that read:
To: Humanity
From: The Father with Love
We also were blessed with a white Christmas!! We haven’t had one of those for 10 years.
The snow started late Christmas Eve, and created a bit of a concern as to our ability to get to Mass in the morning. By the Grace of God we had no problem getting our 15 passenger, rear-wheel drive, maxi van out of the snow covered drive way!
I hope and pray you all had a blessed Holy Day!
And now that the wait is over it’s time to celebrate!
So this week I’ll be sharing a few other things my kids and I will be doing in honor of Christ birth!
Blessings to you all!


  1. Merry Christmas, Jennifer!! What a joy-filled season, isn't it? The snow picture is gorgeous! We had snow, too! Enough to make three snow men in our front yard with plenty of snow left over. And the chance of a white Christmas in Dallas is 0%! The kids are out there now. Very happy children in my neck of the woods 🙂 Wishing you days of joy, peace, and blessings!

  2. Merry Christmas, Jennifer! I enjoy your blog so much. Peace! +JMJ+

  3. Merry Christmas Jennifer! I love the tag you have on baby Jesus. Tells it all, doesn't it? How exciting too that you got snow this year! We had a light dusting which makes it more picturesque!
