The day doesn't really matter, does it. We really don't know our Saviour's birthday anyway. On the DVD "Star of Bethlehem", he makes a clear case that Dec. 25 is the actual day that the wisemen came and gave gifts to Jesus! (see at bottom) What is important is that we celebrate God's love for us in His most precious gift to us - His own Son!
Showing Sophia the nice burp cloth. Andrea's sister makes these!
Eli loves the movie "Cars" so I got him a Baby Kachow (his name for Lightning McQueen) stocking. I got these sweet hair pins for each of the girls. Julie is making these to raise money for their adoption.
Somehow I didn't get a photo of Hannah's new stocking. She is very much loving horses these days so I got her a horse stocking in place of her princess one.
Lots of fun and more party time to come the next night!
