December 25th

On Christmas morning, Liam was SO excited to give Daddy the present he had made him. 
He barely gave Daddy time to wake up, before he was making him open his present. 

 Once he told Daddy all about his hard work making his present, we could go out and open our stockings and presents.

 Grandma & Papa Masters came up for a Christmas brunch before we left for Chamberlain.

When we got to Grandma & Papa Dominiack's, everyone was waiting to open gifts.

Then we had to play some Yahtzee. Our new puppy, Chief kept nibbling on Aunt Carol's toes while we tried to play. He just couldn't resist her fuzzy socks.

Then we went over to my Grandma's house for Christmas with all of the Dominiacks. Liam had a blast with all of his cousins. And I love seeing him play with all of my cousin's kids like we all played together on the holidays. What a blessing!

It was a beautiful Christmas surrounded by family. We gave thanks for time with all those we love. We had many friends and family that were struggling with tragedies this Christmas and it made us so thankful to know that the true meaning of Christmas is all about hope. Hope that came in the gift of a baby in a manger. Hope that no matter what happens in this life, we are promised an eternal life with God if we trust in him. And I am so thankful that my friends and family can hold onto that hope when nothing else in life is making sense.
We are so thankful for the beautiful light of Christmas and all of our family and friends. We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas this year too!
