Here are some cute pictures of Sophia's turn to have our children's church's Jesus doll spend the week with her. It is such a cool way to show the children how they can have Jesus with them at all times. Love it!
In Matthew 28:20, Jesus said,
". . . and surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
Our nephew Michael came later but was not feeling well enough for a picture.
He had had knee surgery just three days before!
Gram with all of her grandchildren.
This doesn't often happen that they are all together at once!
Breakfast with our dear friends Lisa and Michelle
Lunch with Aunt Susie who is working on a
sand art project with Philip in this picture
Then there were the things we forget to take pictures of such as dinner with our sweet friend Minh, another dinner with our good friends Chris and Martha and their daughters (whom Eli couldn't take his eyes off of the entire evening thinking that Chris and Martha's 20-something year old daughters where just there for him!), spending New Year's Eve with Tim and Anna, and their family including Aaron who came home fron China to his forever family last March, and many other fun things.
We pray that Sophia long remembers all of the wonderful things she took part in during her first Christmas home - celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, being with family and friends, and doing so many fun things is sure to leave its fingerprint on her heart!
