Christmas morning

Clay with his new helmet.
Checking out her baby doll.

Our three blessings
Feeding the baby
This is the look she gave when she saw her jeep.

One happy girl.

Who was up first this morning??? Not Ana Claire. It was the boys. They came in and woke us up. They asked her if she wanted to see what she got for Christmas. She told them no since she was still half asleep. One of them got her attention when they asked her if she wanted to see if she got her jeep. Out the bed she jumped. The only thing that she has asked for if you asked her was a jeep and a baby doll. When she walked into the den she was grinning from ear to ear, but you could tell she still didn't know what to think.

As I sat there and watched the kids, I couldn't help but think back two Christmas's ago, the boys sat under the tree with just a photo of their little sister and now here she is right in the middle of everything. Tom and I were also anxiously waiting to hear when we were to travel to bring her home. God has truly blessed our family over the past years.

While we were sitting there I reminded them to think about the true meaning of Christmas. That today we celebrated the birth of Jesus. While it was nice to get gifts, we couldn't forget the true meaning.
Fast forward, we straightened up a little and we all got ready to go to my parents house to spend time with my family. I have also posted a few photos from that above.
