Why We Call Our Blog the Miracle of More

The miracle is a beautiful image of Ephesians 3:20--more than I can ask or imagine. Every day is a miracle. Every moment is a miracle. Specifically for our family, the miracle of more is our family growing in ways I would never have imagined when we first committed to adoption 8 years ago. But, the greatest miracle is the change in ME!

Christmas 2012

This has been one of the sweetest Christmas Days ever.

My post today will be simple-a few video clips from our day. Notice Zeke's excitement as he has NEVER had Christmas before.

And Ellie NEVER leaves us wishing she had shone more emotion.

Drew enjoys seeing his name on the package more than the package itself.

Josie-Tatum is a little more reserved, but listen for the giggle at the end of the video....I think she liked the gift.

And, Whitney NEVER had any idea I was videoing her.

Never could I leave out Brandon!

I just loved seeing the children open their gifts and see the smiles and hear the giggles.I thought whitney looked cute just the way she is with no apologies needed. I loved hearing mama's southern accent in the background. Thank you for sharing your family's joy this season...mm from vancouver,wa.
