Today the kids got to open the presents they got each other. I love the way they thanked everyone after opening their gifts – –  and for the thoughtfulness they had in picking out their gifts for each other. Isebelle loved all her baby dolls. She would stand-up and clap after EACH and EVERY gift! […]

The Shining Star…

After PIcture....

I think I understand the star of Bethlehem a little better tonight. I can imagine the joy that the shepherds found as the angels began to sing – the chills that ran down their spine at the sound of their voices! The Star…..I can picture the way it overtook the moon – the way it […]
