it is that time of year again when i do the annual christmas pictures. i love/hate it. something always comes up....a fall, sickness...something :) well this year was no different kya fell the day before our original pictures and gave herself a black eye so we rescheduled for the next week. the morning of our reschedule kinley woke up with a nasty cold. i figured we had to go and at least try to get some good pictures! it was an interesting morning trying to get a almost 2 year old to sit and smile. kya of course was a doll sitting perfect and listening. but i have to admit i was very surprised with all the good shots we got! i love having new pictures of the girls!
one of both of their favorite things...reading books! this was an easy one!
sweet girls :)

i LOVE christmas time. i love the music, the decorations, the family get togethers..i love it all. this year i am really trying to focus on the reason for this season. i am trying to take time to really teach my kids what christmas is all about. i know i personally get sooo caught up in the busyness of christmas that i forget jesus. i forget that it is all about him. sure everything else is lots of fun, but this time of year is about celebrating that jesus was born on this earth to save us!! what an amazing gift!
we have had a lot of fun spending time as a family reading books and singing christmas songs around the christmas tree at night reflecting on christ's birth.
we also have had a lot of fun decorating the house :)
