Merry Christmas To All...

Merry Christmas to our family and friends. You are all dear to us. We've had a wonderful celebration which started yesterday. We spent some time with some friends that have walked with us through many ups and downs, happy times and sad...we enjoyed fellowship, food and ended with Christmas carols which opened up our hearts to hear from the Lord...it was the most beautiful Christmas Eve we've ever had.

Here the children are with their Christmas Eve gifts...jammies and of course cereal from our dear friend "Jack"...








Christmas Confessions....I hope you will still associate with me after reading this...It's true my children are the Milkman's...hahahaha!!!! We were able to enjoy our first glass of raw milk from our girl today...it was so good - just like drinking ice cream!







My very own "milkman" - I'm a lucky girl!



After breakfast we opened stockings and then filtered to the front room and opened gifts, one at a time! We enjoyed a relaxing time watching the movie Wall-e. Since the children all, yes all, got throwing knives we ventured outside to try our hand at hitting a target - not as easy as it looks! Before dinner we played a few games our favorite being - "dress up dad". The children absolutely enjoyed this. Our dinner was delightful as it was foods mostly from our hard work in the garden and canning. We ended our wonderful day by making a little candy village...that was so much fun! We have lots of candy left - yuk! Now we are watching the movie "Journey to the Center of the Earth"...so far my opinion is "hmmmmm yawn" - we'll see...

What a costume...so much fun!













We all feel like this was the most wonderful Christmas we've had.

Fantastic! I'm so glad you had such a great time together! I can't wait to taste some of that raw milk! Can you bring a little in January? That picture of Dave is hilarious! Your houses are beautiful, don't they smell great? You can put the candy in the freezer to save for next year!

blessings!
