Christmas, Family

A Very MERRY Christmas!

We had a great Christmas this year! It started off with a trip to my parents house a.k.a= Nana & Papa’s 😉 We left on Tuesday to celebrate with them. On Wednesday night we were at Mema & Pa’s (my Grandparents). Every year the WHOLE fam. gets together on Christmas Eve to spend time and EAT! lol! We had 2 new additions to the family this year… Eli (my nephew) & baby Jaiden (my cousin’s daughter). They both were cute as EVER!

Then we headed over to my parents to celebrate!

Then it was on the road home for Christmas morning,.. so Santa could come to our house!
….sorry.. no pics.. Matt had the camera on video mode & took some “not-so-good” shots of me.. yeah,.. they won’t be posted! LOL!

We had a birthday cake for Jesus.. and sang Happy Birthday. Matt read some scriptures from Luke, and we hung our final “Adorenament“.

At lunch we were headed to Papa’s (Matt’s Grandfather). We opened more gifts & spent time with family & of course.. ATE!! lol!

On Christmas night we went to Gran & Big Daddy’s (Matt’s parents) with more eating.. (yum-o) and more gifts! LOL! To say that we were tired… would be an understatement! But, we’re all rested up now.. & I am STILL opening new gifts!!! lol!

As I think about Christmas this year, I am constantly reminded of some close family and friends who have lost loved ones this year… & are having their first Christmas without those loved ones! My heart was burdened for these people ALL day! I would stop and pray occasionally, for them & just prayed that God would see them through. If you are one of those.. who have just had your first Christmas without a loved one… ((hugs!)) My Prayers and thoughts are with you this Christmas season.. may you see the true meaning of Christmas and may God wrap his loving arms around you filling your heart with Good memories & a promise of seeing them again if you both are Believers!!!

Hope everyone had a Blessed Day!! Merry Christmas to every one!
