Christmas Morning part 1 (2008)

Christmas Morning

My sister Elder 2x's made these for us.
This is Dash's stocking that his Grandmother made him.
It is so amazingly detailed and just beautiful. I am so grateful to her for these.

She made this for Dove when she was very little.
She made cute "Tellitubbie" one when she was itty bitty girl.
I always had an orange in my Christmas stocking no matter how poor we were.
It is my tradition to pass on to the children.
The Children awoke us sweetly on Christmas Morning.
They gave us a moment to dress and gleefully anticipated the party for Jesus!
We set the table.
Then the hunt began!
With a clue by clue race of giggly glee the went here and there.

Searching for Jesus.

Searching they longed to find him...

Of course reading was involved :)

Alas! the nest the closest thing to a manger.
Funny thing Daddy man hid the kids baby and I hid the real creche one. They were both out there and we each... did not know the other hid it.
I did it and he did it too.
They each had one to find

They seamed a little lost when they had Him in hand.
Like now what...?
They had a blast searching for him.
We all came in for the Party, by now they had been up a while patiently waiting.

While we ate Daddy Man read the story and Dove told the rest about The hunt that cause so many lives lost to save the baby Jesus.

They were ready for gift time and we joked with them...

Silly guys!

Dove showed us how her friend begs with her mom...

begging to open presents Dash style tongue in cheek.
We were just all having fun being silly.
The pups got an apple in their stocking and out side they went so we could open in peace.

Dog bliss

Santa had wrapped in foil and it was a hit!

This was the very thing they each desired.

I think they were surprised that they received them.

Dash was pleased but the wires were crossed that he longed for a different one,
but boy did he rally.
"That's alright...I love it!"

It thrilled my heart when they each really loved the hats and gloves.

I found Daddy man a place to put his CD's in the car.
He listens to books on tape on his drive to work.
He down loads them and makes cd's .

I was stunned to get this camera.
Tonight we used it to skipe with my sister while we all got together with her grown son. We opened the gifts that had come late due to the storms in the Eastern United States.

At this point I had to go start cooking and the kids started the Lego sets.
Daddy Man Helped them.
It was a wonderful morning.
How nice it was to enjoy each other and to play with the kids more.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"
