Chickadee had one adventure after the next. This was her first time to travel out of the
Bart and I really enjoyed getting the chance to tell her the Christmas story for the first time together. We are praying that she believes it at a young age and what better time to start sharing the truths of the gospel with her than now?
Gift giving and getting was also fun, as always! There were some special gifts for Chickadee under the tree this year:
Her first Bible
A new, special friend who will go by "Twiga" instead of "Sophie". Giraffes are from Africa after all! So we thought the Swahili word for "giraffe" would be a fitting name for her.
Bart's favorite childhood book!
She also got some other great gifts from family members: her first baby doll, new clothes, a big teddy bear, and toys for her crib to help with sleep. Mom gives two thumbs up!- especially to the "toys" to help her sleep. Can I get a hallelujah?
Another highlight was our special pancakes! Check out our little reindeer! (Shout out to Pintrest!)
Even though the trip to and from was long and hard (ask Bart, there were a few moments when we thought we would never make it to the interstate, let alone back to Texas!), but every mile of travel was worth it to get to be with family.
