Christmas Morning & a double giveaway!!!

Hello there! This is my 201st post! WOW!!!! So glad you have hung in and keep coming back. One of my goals this year is to grow my blog so THANK YOU for investing your time.

I promised Christmas Photos (I also promised a giveaway on post 200 so I'm one late there) So I will start with the first half of the day: our overhead lights were burnt out and my camera doesn't do well in dim light so this was the best I could get of the tree - not bad?
In our effort to keep the day about Jesus's birthday - we start the morning by reading the story of Jesus's birth. Mason's turn this year - he reads so well out loud - not every child enjoys that but he seems to.

We opened gifts and it was a wonderful time. We even got to go to church that morning since it fell on Sunday, such a sweet time it was.

Then, there was this "small" miracle... Family pictures! Weird thing was we all wore black, grey, and red. (The only ones missing were Bryan's clan and they were in a hurry to get home so they will be in tomorrow's photos)

The McGuire Gang:

Almost the entire family (this was where the miracle part came in:)

The Legg Gang: 5 smiles and all eyes looking at the camera!

The Mommy and Daddy (again) to be:

It was a sweet morning and a great day - the best one in a VERY long time! Again, miracles do still happen:)

Here is the giveaway #1:

We cannot all keep everything and I have been purging the kids stuff and figured it was my turn as well. I collected a "few" of my scrapbook magazines for you to use for your inspiration. Some of us really do prefer the feel of the paper and turning the page.

Giveaway #2: This is a mini-kit themed around various definitions: celebrate, priceless, time, etc. I never even opened the packaging.

See how deep the box is? Lot of goodies. And a step by step guide to building the book using the pieces included.

If you are interested, please leave a comment and I will draw a name next Sunday afternoon! Please tell your friends and the more comments the better (at least it makes it fair-er)

Have a great week and I will be back soon with a layout or two - I ordered a ton of pics right after Christmas and they arrived a few days ago - nothing better to get your "mojo" back than a fresh batch of photos!
