This Christmas

It's hard to believe that Christmas 2012 has come and gone. 
We enjoyed every bit of the season with lots of traditions...
and even started a new one!

Last week we went to "The North Pole" with the Golinos
to visit Santa and Mrs. Clause 
and brrr was it cold there!

so excited to get on the train to the North Pole!


on our way!



The girls meeting Santa

Rach and I and our fab 4.

Kate asked Santa for gummy worms and a scooter. 
I have no idea where that came from...
 We requested that Santa send a helper to keep
 an eye on Kate to make sure she would make the nice list.

This little guy named Rusty appeared at our house early December. 
He was a busy little elf who was all over our house watching 
little miss busy butt. 
 Christmas morning came & Santa left an abundance of toys for our babies!

Something about Christmas morning is so magical.
The beauty, the warmth, the joy, the anticipation...

It all reminds me of the birth of our Savior, Jesus.

I can't even find the words to describe how incredible this Christmas was.
It was SO full of love, joy & endless blessings.
 
We got to spend the day with both of our families & when we packed the car
up to head home on Christmas night our SUV was packed to the brim & our hearts...
 were even more full.

It took us over 3 hours to put everything away when we got home
 & there is still more to do...
I cried while sorting through all our goodies,
so undeserving of it all..
All of the stuff was amazing & so greatly appreciated but the love
that our family has is the most incredible gift of all.


We are so so grateful for the love that the Lord has for each one of us,
even when we are unworthy of it all. 
 
 I pray y'all had a blessed Christmas
& as this new year approaches you know just how much you are loved
by the One who humbly came to this earth for you and for me..
