Well we started with Christmas Eve in Chicago and then flew to Hotlanta on Christmas Day. Sometimes I wonder if all this traveling and craziness is worth it. Then I look into my mother-in-law’s eyes as she watches her grandson open his presents, or I look at my mom feeding Isaac Christmas cookies and listen to her giggle as she sees Isaac’s wide eyes. . . and I say. . .yes it is worth it. We are blessed to have such a great family. I love being with Tim’s family just as much as he loves being with mine. Here’s a picture of the Farrant side on Christmas Day. Grandma wanted a formal picture, so we all got gussied up to take the shot.
This Christmas was the first Christmas that Isaac knew what was going on. He played elf and passed out all the presents to everyone. He loved ripping the paper off the presents. He was so wired. He now is taking his post Christmas nap. He napped for a total of about 30 minutes yesterday. Today he is going on 4 hours! Being the first and only grandson on both sides he got spoiled rotten with presents.
Every year my cousins (Lindsay & Stephanie) and I take a Christmas picture. Look how much we have changed in the last years.
Well I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. It is so hard to actually remember the reason why we celebrate Christmas. That it is all about a baby named Jesus who was born thousands of years ago in a manger who ultimately died for my sins and allowed me to one day have eternal life with Him. I am so grateful for this time of year as a reminder of all He has done for me. It is a double bonus that this time of year includes lots of family time as well.
