Savoring Some Christmas Moments

I am truly enjoying this wonderful time of year. I just LOVE the Christmas season. We have been super busy, but that's just part of the enjoyment of the season!!

This weekend the boys participated in our churches Christmas concert. What a worshipful experience it was, and one that directed our hearts to the true reason we celebrate--Jesus!! There were two performances, one during the morning service and one during the evening.

I have the privilege of directing Riley's choir and just adore all my little four and five year olds!!!

They sang " Silent Night" and all 34 of them did a super job! I was so....proud of them!

Corban and his buddy Jack.

After all that singing, we came home and enjoyed some hot cocoa!
When I was a little girl my Grandma would make us cocoa in these Santa mugs. What sweet memories I have of sitting around my Grandparents table sipping cocoa with them.
Last week, my Grandma decided it was time she passed these mugs onto us!
Yes--that's a little whipped cream on Riley's nose!

One more sweet moment to share....
Riley has been working so hard on memorizing part of Luke 2 for Christmas!


I'm so proud of him!

I pray your family is enjoying the WONDERFUL Christmas season too!

You won't believe this, but I have those same Santa mugs!! They were my grandmothers and I LOVE them. I can remember drinking out of them when I was little, so it's surreal to me now to see my girls using them :)

Okay, that video was the sweetest thing ever. Rhett watched it with me and he said he wanted to make one for Riley to watch. I guess they can communicate by blog when they are not together!

I love the song but I can't hear Riley. Can you please tell me how to mute the song so I can hear him?
