Christmas 2007

2007 was a very emotional year~
especially this particular Christmas.
Moving to H. proved to be a very Godly move of obedience
which we were very grateful we had made.
I remember being VERY thankful for my sweet family
and my amazing husband!!!

EK was still pretty unsure of the whole Christmas thing~
here she is with her new bitty baby.

Christmas Eve and ready for Santa!

The cousins on Christmas night @ mama and daddy's house.
We also logged in with our paperwork for ShayleeJoy
not knowing how LONG the wait would be...
and that she would be born on Aug 8, 2007
with a heart condition to a family somewhere in China.
You know the sweet part about all that~
GOD knew!!!

Luke 2:22 (NIV)
When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses,
Joseph and Mary took Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord.


  1. Well, this was also the year you logged into China again, right? Not knowing the wait was about to become explosive and crazy? Love EllaKate's cupcake clips!

  2. So 2007 was SJ's first Christmas. Isn't it precious to look back at the pictures and see what YOU were doing the year your daughter was born in another country to another family?
