Christmas time was a real joy for our family. We enjoyed our time together as a family, reunited as Bethany was home from the Word of Life Bible Institute. We also really enjoyed opening all of our familiar Christmas ornaments and decorations. It had been 5 years since we were able to decorate with our own special treasures. The kids analyzed all of their ornaments that they receive each year, looking at each one as if it were the very first time. This year's ornaments seemed to be centered around FOOD - Jordan got a donut, Bethany a cute little cupcake, Amanda a ball covered with glittery things, and Lukas, well, he had to get an ice-cream ornament of course. Jeff and Deanne got ornaments this year as well. Jeff's was a handmade llama, and he made Deanne a COFFEE themed ornament by filling a glass ball with Coffee beans, a mini spoon and a packet of sugar! So fun!
