My youngest brother carving the very first fried turkey most of us have ever had….verdict? Tastes about the same, but sure is faster. Very well carved. Oh…and that’s his daughter, Olivia, in one of her first photo-bombs…

They were all snuggled in bed, and we realized we’d forgotten to put out some gluten-free goodies for Santa….these two were wide awake reading each other stories….and more than happy to help….:)
My family gathered everyone around for a “Gift Exchange”, only to find out the gifts were all pretend…the first one opened contained this ornament and some money toward our adoption….explaining they’d rather give to bring our Phoebe home…so much love being developed….adoption touches so many lives…:)

Toward the end of Christmas, I noticed Sophie re-arranging all of the people that were spread out on Nana’s table. “What are you doing?” I asked her. “They all want to be closer to Jesus”, she said. Amen. 🙂
