I am so thankful for these little souls that I have been blessed with. That I know all of them so well, that they trust me with their thoughts and little secrets. I love that their MINE for this short period of time, that God trusts me with them, that he is using me to teach them about his SON...and the work they are called to do for him.
I have been going through Christmas pictures of the past and came upon these. This was a our first Christmas in Northwest Arkansas, back when my boys had toothless grins, Julia was still chubby and shy and Jillian was still pretty new. We have spent Christmas' in so many places, with so many wonderful people. My heart is full looking back over the 11 years Corey and I have been married at all the people we have celebrated with, at each child's first Christmas, and the wonderment in their eyes.
We are having fun...this Christmas season. Jillian is loving Christmas trees, calls the baby Jesus in the manger "Baby God" (not sure where she heard this but I love it), we don't let anyone correct her and have been able to share so much with our kids because of what comes out of the mouth of a two year old.
