Who's got a beard that's long and white?

Santa's got a beard that's long and white!!!

That's right...it is time for the Big Jolly Man to make his appearance. Calla got to meet him for the first time last week. She really enjoyed sitting on his lap and just smiled her cute Calla smile! We think that we are lucky that both Grandpa's have a beard...so hopefully she will never be afraid of him!

This last week she has really started to show us that she is growing up too fast. She pulls herself up to about anything now...most of the time, just to her knees, but occasionally to her feet!! Yikes...I want my baby back. :'(

In all seriousness though...Pastor Dave told of an experience he once had. A woman was telling about the Christmas program her children had taken part in at their elementary school. The woman was telling how cute they looked and all the fun songs they had done. Then she said...for some reason they had to bring Jesus into it and then they had to sing some religious songs. I don't know why they would bring him into it!
Jesus is the REASON for the season. Without his birth we would not have Christmas! Take the time this season to remember the real reason we celebrate and give thanks to Him and all that He has given for us!

Hanging out by the tree!

For some reason she was trying to crawl over the box!!

Wearing Little B's reindeer outfit from last year!!!

Calla and the big man...look at her arm propped up on his belly!

How cute, and I can't believe how grown up she looks!

ADORABLE pictures (as always) and GREAT message! I hope I truly appreciate all that Christmas means and the blessings God has given to my family this year, in years past, and in the many-many years to come!

Thanks for the reminder!
