On the ninth hour of Christmas my boys gave to me, perfect looks of sheer surprise and awe.

On the eleventh hour of Christmas my baby gave to me, ornaments pulled down off the Christmas tree.

Christmas morning is loud at our house, there's excited boys, candy snitching, dramatic babies, and chaotic moments of missing pieces and piles of wrapping paper.
But it's perfect, in every way, for our family of seven. The wrapped presents under the tree and the sincere gratefulness from our smiling babies serve only to mirror our Father in Heaven, the giver of good gifts and His blessing us with innumerable presents throughout the year.
So as our kids jumped into our arms and wrapped arms around necks for gifts given from a loving father, we ended Christmas Day joyous in praise for all the gifts from our Abba Father! Merry Christmas 2017!
