christmas day

We began our day at home with homemade cinnamon rolls and the story of Christmas.  The kids enjoyed opening their stocking and presents.
Andrew was excited about a Toy Story 3 Lego set.

Carter got the game BOP-IT and loved it, not so sure about the face we caught.

Aubrey got a guinea pig and named him Scooter... she is in love!

Andrew also got a Green Machine...

Aubrey got a bow ans arrow set from Grammy and Papa so she gave it a try!

Cooper got some apple sauce in his stocking from Grammy and he dove right in!

 Uncle Paul, Andrew and Carter made a little time for football even though it was freezing out!

Christmas day also marked 7 months for our dossier arriving in Rwanda.  I never thought we would wait this long.  We prayed for our children this day like we do every other day and now we pray more specifically- Lord, bring them quickly.  We thought they would be on our Christmas card this year but now we are praying that this is true for next year.  We already love those 2 that we are eagerly anticipating being part of our family!  The kids are eager to share their lives with them.  They daily say something about their new brother and/or sister. 

Still resting in HIM- the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings and choosing joy in this circumstance!
