Thank you God for the greatest gift in the world...your only Son.

Christmas Eve

We had a perfect Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  I was so excited for this Christmas...It was so much fun sharing the magic of Christmas with our two sweet girls.  Briley is at such a fun age and really gets it.  I love the holidays!!

We started Christmas Eve off with our Children's program at church.  
Here is our little ham singing during the preschool choir part.  
I love working for our church and I had a blast putting this program together...but I was glad for Candlelight service to start because it meant the children's program was over ;)  It was a great program!!  All the kids did so good even after missing a rehearsal because of the ice.

My sweet Delaney Hope
This was the best picture I got of the 3 of us girls.  Briley was over pictures if you can't tell!!
Our church's candlelight service was packed and absolutely beautiful this year!!

After church we headed to my Grandaddy and Granny Nell's.  My Mom had a BIG surprise coming her way at their house!!
A sweet baby pug named Lucy!!  She has been wanting one for a LONG time and my Dad finally made it happen.  Lucy and Briley are already best friends!!
Love this picture of my Mom and her girls!!

After Grandaddy and Granny Nell's we came home, put on our Christmas PJ's, and set out cookies and milk for Santa.

And he did NOT disappoint!
Stay tuned for our Christmas Day post!!

The Reason for the pictures!!!

I really do want to keep blogging.  It is extremely hard to find the time right now.  Honestly the reason why I am blogging now is because I am sick with strep throat and home from church.  Maybe I should make a resolution for 2014 to blog more??  ;)
Here are some fun pictures of my sweet family celebrating our Saviors birth...
Putting up our Christmas tree

Harrison our elf came back!!
And he did not disappoint!!!  ;)
We blessed a 2.5 year old angel...the same age as our Hadley
Looked super cute in our winter hats!!
Went and saw the Fort Worth Parade of Lights and had our annual picture by the tree with Auntie and Papa!!
ICEMAGEDDON hit Fort Worth hard and we were stuck inside for 4 days straight!!!
 Delaney learned how to sit up with the help of her boppy 
This one enjoyed lots of popcorn and movies...I think we watched every Disney movie we own!!
We braved the freezing cold temps for about 2.5 sec!!
TOO cold for us Texans!!
Harrison surprised Briley the morning it iced.  She though it was snow and was so disappointed when she jumped in and landed on HARD ice!!
We did some organizing and had mani and pedi time!!
This was the amount of ice on our driveway!!
We finally got out when Daddy came home from the fire station and what did we go see??  FROZEN of course!!  ;)
Once the ice melted we made our way to see the jolly guy!!
 Briley wrapped and wrote tags on presents for the first time all by herself!!

Went and saw Daddy play the bagpipes in his city's parade!!
 All the kiddos rode in the trailer with the bag pipers and Delaney and I rode in the warm truck :)
After the parade inside the station the little girls couldn't get enough of sweet Delaney :)

Isn't she the prettiest??
We also celebrated Christmas with our House2House group at church and Delaney sat in a high chair for the first time while the kids decorated cookies :)
We have been busy!!  But it's been a blast and in the next 4 days we have Christmas Eve play rehearsals, Christmas Eve play, candlelight service, looking at Christmas lights, and of course Christmas Day!!
I'll end with our Christmas card...Merry Christmas!!!
