A few Christmas pix!

Ho Ho Ho!!! Merry Christmas!!! Happy Birthday Jesus!! Christmas 2011 is a wrap! All things were happy and grand for the ole Thomas family and momma Claus is pooped out. :) Here are a few snippets inside the fun. Enjoy!

This picture is actually my favorite. This is at my inlaws house and each of the grandchildren went around the circle and said a favorite bible verse and/or part of the Christmas story. Huddling is in the Christmas story, right?! It was so sweet though. These 5 kiddos really do love one another.





This is the gift to my parents. It was the picture we used in our Christmas card and the fabulous Erin Condren turned it into this!





This is my 70+ year old momma listening to some "beats!" She has no idea who or what she is listening to. Cute, huh?!





This guy got the Tim Tebow book.....kids version. I'll be reading this.




These are the infamous beats. Its the hot cool thing. Expensive cool thing I might add.





Here is stud with his new bat for the year! Watch out!





And then here we are Christmas morning by the tree. I'm still in pj's and therefore hiding in the back. ;)





It was really a great few days as a family. The kids are getting older so the Christmas fun and dynamics are seriously changing and after 15 years I'm truly ok with it. I'm now spending some time really really really thinking about this new year and what needs to be done.



I pray you use these days to thank God for where you have been and really seek Him this next year like no other time in your life. Its a comforting feeling and a crazy, hold on tight feeling all at the same time!



Happy 2012!! Hope your Christmas was oh-so merry!

Y'all are precious.

EXCEPT...

I thought Tyler was wearing an Alabama sweatshirt. And I hyperventilated a little thinking all of you were traitors.

Then I saw it was Arkansas.

All is right again.

Carry on.

You have such a sweet family! And I'm contemplating what needs to change in the New Year, too. I am looking forward to hugging your neck in Houston!

Merry Christmas, Fran. Love your pics. My step-son brought to our home this year (at my husband's request) his Dr. Dre headphones. I think my man is coveting them.

Happy New Year!

Beautiful photos! Looks like the Lord tremendously blessed your family as He always does all of us.

Loved the family photo blown up for your Mother and I'm sure that Tim's book is going to bless your son.

Christmas and New Year blessings to you and your family Fran.

Love in Christ,
Lisa

Loved this Christmas run down, and the pics of the family. It truly warms a Mamma's heart to see her young men grow and delight in the other things that Christmas brings to them. Thanks for sharing your life and encouraging us to contemplate the coming New Year.
Can't wait to meet you in Houston.
Blessings

I blog so you can get a glimpse into my life as wife, mom of 3 boys, and someone who simply wants to bless others along the way. Have fun and be sweet :)
