Family Christmas Memories

When family is home, it is like a little taste of heaven. Exactly three weeks after our Family Thanksgiving (with 23 family around our table), we gathered again - for our Family Christmas (with 18 around our table). It was a special treat to have a son home from San Francisco, to join those who live nearby to us.

The time of year when we celebrate the best gifts of all ... the Greatest Gift of all - JESUS, the gift of a loving family, and the gifts of sharing food, fun, and presents.  The year has not been perfect, and none of us are perfect, but when we are together, we taste of heaven.  Because of JESUS, love is with us.

As a mom and grama, I treasure the memories of our day together, and love to capture them with digital scrapbooking.  These are the pages that I have had time to create so far (and may share some more from our Christmas in the future).  All thanks and praise to God for the Gift of JESUS, and for the gift of family ...
