A Merry Little Christmas


Dear Friends,

I hope that you had a lovely Christmas, wherever you spent it. Ours was spent at home, enjoying the joyful noise of little ones so excited by the possibilities of what could possibly be hidden under a thin layer of wrapping paper. Hyrum wasn't too excited, however, about modeling the knitwear that was made as gifts this year!


The dolls had a fun Christmas. One of the them, who was just a head without a body, finally got a body for Christmas, which can only happen if you're a doll!



 Evangeline's dolls were excited to meet the newest Ken doll, whom we have dubbed "Mr. Darcey" for now~


Frankie was just happy about getting a few toy tractors to add to his construction company~


The older girls not only received hobbit-related paraphernalia, but also were able to see the latest Hobbit movie the day after Christmas. They even dressed as some of their favorite characters!




My friend Cat surprised me with a homemade apron, which was truly needed~
 


 But of course, the greatest gift of all is knowing that "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

Love,

Marqueta

  5. A beautiful Christmas! Your girls look so much alike. It must be so much fun for them to have each other. I only have 2 and the chattering and planning that goes on!

    Legs and arms a doll can sometimes do without...but every head needs a body!
