SWEET Sketch Wednesday!!

Merry Christmas!!!  What a wonderful few days this has been...  Great to see family, we gathered at my brother and sister-in-law's house on the Cape Saturday.  Love to get pictures of the next generation, they are all growing up so fast - this group ranges in age from 7 months to 10 years old!!

We were missing the newest member of the family, Jack just 6 weeks old - he arrived with his parents in New England on Christmas Eve!!  I was so excited to finally meet him!!  We had our Christmas Eve gathering at my sister and brother-in-law's house... complete with a visit from Santa!!

Before the gathering, we had a wonderful Christmas Eve service where we celebrated the reason for the season - the birth of  Jesus who came so that we may have life... eternally.

My heart is full and my body is tired, and I am thankful for so many things one of which is that tomorrow my office is closed =)

Lots to do...  Before I go on babbling, let me share this week's Sketch with you from Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Our Sponsor is Jodie over at Bugaboo Digi Stamps!!  LOVE her stuff!!  Be sure to visit and have a look...  always something new to see =)
