"I Celebrate the Day"

Merry Christmas!!!!!

I thought I'd share a few pictures of our morning, though this is just more proof that I need a new camera! Did I tell you that Cody set it down in water?? Anyways...

{How cute are they?!}

Pepper was sad that she didn't have anything to open...


She discovered her presents the other day, so we went ahead & gave them to her. I don't think she understands that if she sniffs her presents out early, it really ruins everything on Christmas morning...


After the kids opened their presents, we had them gather up the wrapping paper & take it to the recycling in the garage...where they found new bikes :)


I was reading the label on this little gift & didn't even realize that I had said, "Milk chocolate pretzel bites filled with awesome." It says that they're filled with peanut butter, but my family already knew that so I had stopped reading aloud. When I looked up, they were staring at me like I was a weirdo. Chris said, "Filled with...awesome?"


And now for a bit more randomness...I've now had the honor of spilling coffee on this page of TWO peoples' copies of Wreck This Journal! {First Kassie's (one of my girls from church) & now Elly's} :)


I'll conclude with a couple of lines from the song for Day 12 in the 12 Days of Christmas Song Challenge: all-time favorite Christmas song. I've absolutely loved this one since the very first time I heard it!

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life...
"But when the right time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent Him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as His very own children." (Galatians 4:4-5)
