Family Times at Christmas

We were so blessed to have both of our daughters and their families with us to celebrate Christmas this year. Here are a few photos of our time together:

Mark and Maya cutting out gingerbread cookies...
Eli tastes a little dough while Erin and John help him cut out cookies...Jack and John do a little cutting out of cookies, too...It's a gingerbread cookies decorating party!
Sara, Mark and Maya...Erin, John, Eli and Jack...Me, Lauren, Erin and Sara...The JEMS in their new hats, ready for the snow!

Erin, John, Jack and Eli headed for Minnesota yesterday after a 1-day delay due to car trouble. They will get home today, hopefully before another Midwest storm! Sara, Mark and Maya live here, and they are enjoying some family time before Mark student teaches and Sara goes back to school. Lauren is back to work and I am recuperating from a very wonderful time together. We are so thankful for God's provision for us as a family, not only with our time together, but also because of His Son's birth, sacrifice and resurrection so that we may be forgiven and have a relationship with Him. He is our greatest Gift, and by His grace and mercy we are in His family.

Yes, He is indeed our greatest gift. Good to see that He has also gifted you with a loving family to share these times with. Nothing like it on this side of glory.

Came by to wish you all the blessing of the Lord in the New Year!
