Lets Scrap Sketch 138

This weeks sketch project on Let's Scrap!
The original sketch had ten photos' but you know me, and I have to have a large journaling area.
We have a particular way we open our gifts on Christmas so this is my layout of our family tradition. I did make the lamp my nephew is holding and plan on making another one for hubby and my bedroom. Visit us at www.letsscrap.ning for more inspiration!

The Greatest Gift Exchange

Something I've been contemplating today- the greatest gift exchange. I've been working on my DT project for Let's Scrap (reveal on December 30th) and had planned on titling it "The Great Gift Exchange" but decided instead for "Our Family Christmas Gift Exchange" because my spirit kept working on me about my term usage. The Greatest Gift Exchange is the gift of Christ, on a cross where he exchanged all my sin for redemption . How could anything else compare?! Nothing in this world, for sure. So during this wonderful Christmas season all thanks be to God for his incomparable gift!

All Things Christmas

What a surprise for Emma! We adopted kittens about the same time in September but her's disappeared in November. Her Nana and Pa decided to give her a new kitten for Christmas. My sister chose the kitten and I went on December 20th to pick it up. Michael and I had the pleasure of pet sitting until the big reveal on Christmas Eve. I don't know yet what Emma is going to name her but she's one of the mellowest, sweetest kittens we've ever known. She'll always have a soft spot in her uncle and aunt's hearts!
