Homemade Love

It's a bit of a chore peeling apart balls of aluminum foil wads, but we each do it anyway, knowing the gift inside is given with love from Oliver. Patience pays off and a piece of bubble gum, torn off of his larger roll is the reward. My favourite part of Christmas at home? When kids give presents they've created or bought themselves. We're getting more and more "regular" grown-up-ish things, but those homemade ones stuck together with hockey tape or wrapped in an egg carton are reminders that when I feel the kids are so big... well, they're still young. The best part? Watching them get all giddy waiting for their siblings to open the treasures in which they've put great thought. 

Hmmm... could this be what I think it is?
Ashanti's momma got to have her for Christmas Eve, so we opened gifts with her Christmas Night.
How she loves doing "Itsy-Bitsy" with Molly :)

Merry Christmas, friends!
May Jesus fill your homes and hearts with peace.
