Santa Claus is Comin' to Town Part 1

Merry Christmas from the Barlow Bunch! (Christmas Eve 2012)
We had the BEST Christmas - seeing the JOY of two boys, worshipping with our Royston Baptist community, traveling to Kentucky, spending time off work, & enjoying lazy mornings as a family.  Peyton got it this year - baby Jesus, Santa Claus, the eight reindeer, presents on Christmas day, & a big trip to see family & celebrate with them.  I think Jonathan said it perfectly as he ate the Santa cookies, "I've waited my whole life for this!"
On Christmas Eve, we worshipped at RBC & Jonathan did an excellent job leading our congregation in the true meaning of Christmas. We came home & took pictures (per Mama's request), wrote Santa a note, tucked the boys in bed a little early, & played Santa Claus!!!
Christmas Eve (Nolan LOVES his hands!) 

Throwing out reindeer food 
Due to Peyton not feeling 100%, our Christmas morning did not start extremely early.  Jonathan & I were able to brew coffee, set up the video camera, & nurse Nolan before Peyton woke up to see what Santa left for him.  He loved it all!!! See the excitement on his face -

I hope this Christmas season was special for you & your family! I will treasure Christmas 2012 in my heart.  Christmas part 2 will be posted soon....
