Handmade with Love

We made our gifts this year for each other.
And although it was A LOT of work.
It was so worth it.
Here are a few of my favorite moments on Christmas morning...

Bekah opening her puzzle blocks from Topher with pictures of The Nutcracker Ballet on them, she absolutely adores them.
Porter opening his puzzle blocks, and Christopher being so excited to see what he thought of them.Porter LOVING his barn that his sister and dad made for him, and putting all of his new presents inside.But these two moments are my favorite...

Christopher being so DANG excited about his beanbag chair, I mean look at that face!
And then the hug that immediately followed him opening his bean bag chair.
So much genuine love and appreciation.
And Bekah feeling what it's like to make someone she loves truly happy.
This is why we give presents on Christmas.
To feel like this.
To feel a little sliver of what its like to be truly selfless and full of love.
Like our Saviour, who this season is all about.
