Friday Favorites :: Favorite Christmas Past Pictures

by - Friday, December 22, 2017

Happy Friday & Happy Christmas weekend y'all!! 
Only THREE more sleeps until the Big Guy comes!

And I can not believe there is only ONE Friday left of 2017.

Before I get started today, I wanted to share our magic reindeer food with you that my kiddos & I make every year together.  This is just something fun that we started doing a few years ago.  Cooper & Millie Jo love it.  I even found this little poem that goes with it on Pinterest.
This year we used oats, Christmas sprinkles & mini marshmallows.  On Christmas Eve we go out in the front yard & sprinkle it out.  Try it with your kiddos!  I'm sure they will love the magic of it all! 😊
And now time for ...
Today I am linking up with ErikaNarciAndrea for Friday favorites!  In the spirit of Christmas, I am sharing some of my favorite pictures from Christmas past.  I don't know about you but I LOVE looking back on pictures!  And today I'm starting by taking it all the way back to 2008 ...
Mine & Dan's 5th Christmas together.
I mean BABIES!!!
And let's all just take a moment & check out Dan's hair & beardless face. 😉

Not knowing when we took this picture that we'd become the parents of this little stinker just two years later ...
Christmas 2010
Cooper's first Christmas!

Christmas 2013
Millie Jo's first Christmas.

And then this specific year we just thought for sure we would be celebrating our first Christmas as a family of five ...
Christmas 2016

But God had other plans for our life & our sweet Ruthie Belle.

As I get ready to celebrate Christmas 2017 ... twenty-eight weeks pregnant with another baby girl, I give Him all the glory, honor & praise because His ways are good & I trust Him.  Looking back on last Christmas when my heart was so broken & I was grieving the loss of my girl, I can't help but tear up thinking about how God knew all along that His plan was & is for us.  He has known the goodness He has in store for our little family.  Joy does come in the morning, friends!

My prayer for each & everyone of you reading this is that your Christmas is filled with lots of love & family.  That you focus your eyes on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ & that your hearts are so full.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
