Christmas break

"For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And He will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaian 9:6

Wow, I have so much to go back to. I have not journaled about our Christmas. It was such an amazing time. Not just the holiday but the whole season. I always knew it will be special once we have children but it seems like it is getting better every year. We had so much fun preparing for Jesus' arrival. Everyday we were trying to make or learn something special about winter or Christmas. We loved the snow. I think if it's winter we shall have snow, ice and cold. We sure had plenty. It was neat to transport the boys to the school bus on sleds and pick them up that way :) Daddy and the kids made the best snowman. We named him Snowy Henry.

You can see our decoration and various crafts we added to our home each week. Little bells, sleds, angels, manger, colored wooden crosses etc. It was a lot of fun to pick the tree out with the girls and David. We enjoyed having the boys home from school, having visitors and going to the Children's Museum with Elizabeth, Miriam and Michelle.
The girls got into the Nativity so much that even in February they were acting like Mary, Joseph and the donkey :)It was so much to watch and hear as they played. Every night as they went to sleep they were listening to some special stories, poems and songs on cd related to Christmas.

Enjoy the slides
