My Christmas Blessings

I do realize I'm a little later than most with sharing about Christmas. But considering my little ol' blog hasn't gotten any attention since November 21, it's no surprise. I'm posting pictures of my family for my family, but you are more than welcome to enjoy them as well. I *bigsquishyheart* my family!

Every year we spend Christmas Eve at my mom's house. This year was no different. We had such a great time visiting, eating some JL's BBQ, opening gifts and sharing about how we helped someone in need during the year/holiday. My mom and bonus dad started something quite special years ago. You see, they don't need anything and the things they want they are able to buy. All they ask of the kids and grandkids is for us to do something for someone else and then write it in a Christmas card and share it with everyone Christmas Eve. It's been such a blessing of a tradition, even the younger children enjoy sharing how they've helped someone. 

Christmas Eve morning was spent with my dad, brother, sister-in-law and niece. Poppy spoils his girls immensely! 

Christmas day was spent with Brett's family at our home. Yes, more spoiled was going on.

I know how blessed we are and never want to take that for granted. Our girls have such wonderfully giving grandparents. They truly do not know what it's like to do without. We can never thank them enough for all they do for us.

Hopefully I'll find time to do another blog post in the next day or two. I'd love to share the family pictures we did for Christmas.

I sincerely hope you all had a blessed Christmas and enjoyed time with those you love most.
