Christmas 2010

Oh Joyful Time of Year!

"Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world of the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart." -- George Matthew Adams

"I am not alone at all, I thought. I was never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas. We are never alone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the word seemingly most indifferent. For this is still the time God chooses." -- Taylor Caldwell

Quote from Sonya upon arriving at our house Christmas day.

Happy Chaos!

Joyful Faces!

Teddy wanted Audrey Hope's noisy play phone.
Audrey wanted Teddy's Hot Wheels.
They each got a cuddly monkey of their own to hug!!

"And NOW what do I do with this, Dad?"

 "Will So like our gift?..."
(And they gave her a blue one as well!!)

It was an exhaustingly good time.
As soon as it was dark outside Sonya said,
"Oh, it's nighttime! Time to change into my blue ballet dress!!"
And what else could you ask for on Christmas Day?
(Most of the photos by Missy with my Nikon, then I edited them. Good team eh?)
