Happy Birthday Jesus!!!

What a wonderful day today was. The kids let us sleep until 6:59 and we were greeted with signs leading the way to the presents. A has started this tradition and does it every year. The kids are playing and J is sitting by the fire surfing. I am trying to get a few hand sewing projects ready for the ride down and I have Ted Dekker's Saint in the car ready to be read. Now I need to motivate everyone to get things packed. We leave for LA tomorrow. Packing isn't too bad, we have made this trip loads of times and we have a nice system of what we need and where everything is put.

I am looking forward to this trip. Winter started early this year and we haven't had much warmth since October. Z said that he is packing shorts. I am also looking forward to meeting my brother's fiancee' . I haven't met her yet and given my approval..LOL I love my brother and I am glad that she makes him happy.

Looking at this picture, I realize that I have a motley looking brood...I love them all so much and they are such blessings to me and J. Too many years I spent praying for them to arrive. I am one joyful mother. God had blessed us beyond measure. Thank you Jesus!!!

I hope everyone has a great Christmas!!
