Merry Christmas!

It's officially 6 minutes into Christmas Day as I write this. My amazing volunteer, Barbara, is just now emerging from the nursery; God bless you, Barb!

Some pictures we took a few days ago; Seth's will follow tomorrow, I hope!

We will probably never get a picture of our whole family posed right and looking the right direction.
Plus, Isaac was in Iowa and Seth is at Children's.
Left to right: Gavin, Will, David, Marcie (the least happy to be stuffed in a stocking), and Grace

These two pictures (above, below) seem very Norman Rockwell-esque to me.
Everyone is doing something different, with very varied expressions.
That's a yawn from Marcie, not a scream, thankfully!
Will and David - don't you love Will's fat belly? He did NOT fit in his Dollar Store stocking!
David looks a bit scared by Marcie, who in turn looks shocked/scared by something off camera
Marcie was definitely not into this photo shoot. Grace was a content little princess who looks VERY much like a Peterson, I think! (Do the other Peterson's/Heisler's agree?)
The whole adorable home crew. We are blessed! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!


  1. A very blessed Christmas. I had the feeling that David was looking in the direction of Marcie and Grace with the thought, "They are going to be trouble for us, Will".
    All the pictures are just wonderful. So great to See Ken and Courtney.
    Love you all.

  2. Blessings and peace to you all this Christmas season. This is one of my very favorite Christmas songs....I think you'll enjoy it too! Merry Christmas Gavin, Carrie, Isaac, Will, David, Seth, Marcie and Gracie!


  3. Merry Christmas to all of you. The pictures are wonderful, thanks so much for sharing. Awesome news about Seth. He will be home before you know it. God Bless each ofyou.

  4. The pictures are wonderful, always brightens my day. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Beautiful pictures! Merry Christmas!

  6. I hope your family and a terrific Christmas. Christ's love is ever present and I am reminded of it every day when I read your blog entries :-)

  7. I love the pictures in their stockings:-) I have identical twin brothers that were born 11/17/65. They weighed 3lbs 11oz and 4lbs 3oz when they were born. We took pictures of them in their Christmas stockings too:-)

  8. Hello Gavin and Family! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! It's been a while since I've checked in on you all. Everyone looks great!! The stocking pics gave me a good laugh :-) God Bless you all! May God keep protecting your family.
