Christmas, 2015

Gingerbread houses with the Ball Team....gone in sixty seconds.
Balmy Christmas day by the town fountain.
We are a paycheck to paycheck kind of family.  Christmas is not a huge event, gift-wise.  James and I do what we can, and our parents are generous, but, we try to focus more on each other.  This year each of the kids got a present they wanted, and a few little things they liked.  We played, we ate Chinese food and we hung out together.  That's what Christmas is about - our family.  Jesus Christ was born in a stable all those years ago and He wants us to be happy, and enjoy our time here to learn.  We need to learn about Him, about life, about how to be happy.  That's Christmas.
