Denver and Bree invited us to share Christmas day with them.....nothing sweeter than a babies first Christmas....Lincoln became that gentle reminder that Christ was the first gift.
They had yummy Germany pancakes prepared for us...yum! We opened gifts, placed games, had lunch and just enjoyed little Lincoln.
Lincoln and his Christmas blanket....I bought it at thepoppieshoppe soft as baby skin.
Fun, sweet and happy Christmas.
On the way home we stopped at Sam and Heidi's to check on the kids and see how their Christmas went!
(Mason and Jessica spent Christmas at the Cabin.)
I know the Lord lives. I know that He loves us. I know that apart from Him no one can succeed, but as a partner with Him no one can fail.
I know that God can make a lot more out of our lives than we can.
My goal as I move into the new year is to more fully strive each day to think on Christ, learn of Him, walk in His steps, and do what He would have me do.
Christmas Weekend- Lincoln's Blessing
Sunday December 26 2015, Lincoln received a wonderful blessing and a name from his Father. Sweet and loving! Thankful for family and friends that came to support this sweet family.
(Mason and Jessica are missing from this picture...because... Alene became sick minutes before the meeting started and threw up ....they stayed long enough for the blessing then left....so sad) Sorry Turlock stake building....we kind of left our mark....thank you to the sweet sisters that helped us clean up...always an adventure.
I hurried and took a picture before they left.
and now a little Lincoln photo shoot
What a sweetheart...love him so.
We enjoyed soup, salad and cookies while he slept..... he wasn't the only one needing some sleep.
I love my family with all my heart and soul.....
"We build deep and loving family relationships by doing simple things together, like family dinner and family home evening and by just having fun together. In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e, time. Taking time for each other is the key for harmony at home. We talk with, rather than about, each other. We learn from each other, and we appreciate our differences as well as our commonalities. We establish a divine bond with each other as we approach God together through family prayer, gospel study, and Sunday worship.” Of things that Matter Most Dieter F. Uchtdorf
