Took the time off the computer to spend with my family. The girls were wonderful and my son has been basking in the attention. He sees so little of the two oldest that he enjoyed playing video games, playing with his kitty and just hanging out with them. Rachel and Beth love him to pieces so it was mutual admiration time. Paige loved her new "Sock Monkey" pajamas so much she spent the entire day in them. Pretty funny for a 20 year old. Robin and I just enjoyed having our own around us. No fighting or fussing. So peaceful. Such a wonderful gift.
Christmas at our house isn't about gifts. Sure, we had a few but the real gift was being together. And that is really what Robin and I have wanted from the beginning of our marriage. We watched "White Christmas" and "Christmas Story"and laughed just like it was the first time we'd seen them.
We are so blessed to be able to retreat to our little kingdom of home. We play together, pray together and best of all, love each other. There were plenty of hugs, kisses and expressions of "I love you" to go around. Our hearts are warm and full.
All because our Jesus first loved us.
Keep the faith,
