As you can see, the kids really enjoyed me making them dress up like life-sized Elves on the Shelf.
Regardless, we've had a lovely Christmas season, full of love and joy and surprises.
First we greatly enjoyed Crosspointe Church's Christmas service and even had a nice family picture taken while there.
Then we pulled out the Christmas china and had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner.
On Christmas morning, we surprised the kids with plans for a Disney cruise to Hawaii!
Of course all of the above is great, but in the end, it pales in comparison to the real meaning of Christmas.
Thank you, God, for sending your Son to show us how limitless your love and grace and truth really are.
