Merry Christmas!

We are so blessed to celebrate Christ's birth as fellow heirs to the kingdom of God. And we are so blessed to have celebrated Christmas this year together with four kids at home in our new resident state of Texas, and one kid waiting across the ocean in China.  :) 

Can't wait to hear that Eli hopefully received his Christmas Care Pkg & the news of us becoming his forever family. As a family tradition we opened gifts to one another on Christmas Eve. But in the spirit of St. Nicholas's Giving our entire family gets stockings on Christmas morning at our house, and today was no exception... the kids found Eli's stocking under our "Advent Tree" where dad put it because Eli is family and we are preparing & awaiting his arrival, just as we have been preparing & awaiting for Christ this season.

Zoe & Levi enjoyed exploring Eli's stocking and we are putting his things up for his travel backpack home...

And if we didn't have enough things to praise God for, I must share a wonderful blessing we just received... When I opened our blog to write this post, I noticed it looked like our Chip In fund was bigger. So I hurried to log into Eli's paypal account and found that we received a $100 Donation TODAY, on Christmas day!!! Thank you so much to the GIVER of this Gift. May God bless you tenfold! That is the second $100 Donation we have received this week... Christmas week. God bless tenfold the Corsicana family, who blessed us earlier this week too. Praise the Lord of all things, praise His Holy name! As we are trying to finish selling the calendars and raise the rest of our first agency payment of $3,000 these Donations are a huge blessing and encouragement.

Merry Christmas to all & God bless us, everyone!
