Christmas...a little early:)

We let the kids open one present a piece, a little early, and they were so pumped! I can't imagine how HYPER Christmas will be this year:) Two toddlers, LOTS of family and TONS of presents...I already need a nap! I joke about the craziness, but I must say, I am so looking forward to this Christmas with the kids. Monty and I have really been trying to teach them the precious reason for this holiday and their grasp of Jesus' birth has been fantastic! They genuinely know this is His birthday and that THEY are their own gift to Him:) What a wonderful concept! So, praise Him for this season and for the gift of His Son and His Spirit! May you be glorified, Lord, in all we do...even if we will need a nap after it all!

Mayce decided she wanted her dad to be the couch. What a good sport to try and accommodate the request of a 3 year old!
His daddy has taught him well! "Hook 'em Horns!"

Yes, folks, he IS a professional!

I just had to post a picture of the beautiful work of art Monty created on our house:) He did such a good job with our lights, I felt the need to share:) I'm pretty sure you can see our house from 2 blocks away:) May each of you have a blessed Christmas as you celebrate the monumental birth of our Savior!

Monty...I absolutely treasure you!

Monty, you are the most precious person in my life and I adore you! I literally praise God daily for the gift that you are! You are the epitome of a Godly husband, being blessed with the heart of a lion and a lamb. You truly remind me so much of David in your pure and uninhibited devotion to your Father. I don't know how you manage to make me feel as if I am the most beautiful women you've ever seen, but you do it daily, and it blows me away. Thank you for giving me so much security by making your relationship to the Lord more important than anything here on earth....2nd place never felt so good! When you proclaim "as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!" it is a battle cry from your heart and I have never seen a man fight so hard for it! You draw in the Spirit in such a mighty way, crying out for him to activate all His wondrous gifts right before our eyes. What a marvelous sight, I have witnessed, on more occasions than I can count. You cause our children to literally hunger and thirst for Christ, for to them, He is as real as you are! So, today, the words thank you fall so short, but they will have to do. You are the man I could have never dreamed of, for you far surpass what I could have ever imagined! I love you!
