A Merry Merry Christmas!

Last year, Kimmie and Quan were just pictures on our Christmas tree...this year it's the full monty baby!
We spend every Christmas Eve with Nanny Nell, our sweet "adoptive" grandmother from church!

Rob's present to me this year was VERY SPECIAL. He made a video of our China trip! It is BEAUTIFUL, and I just cried and cried. Kylie came over and watched it, too! It is 40 min. long, so we can't put it on the blog. But I do wish you all could see what an awesome job he did!

All the kiddos got new blankies Christmas Eve. I had just told Carlie to give Troy a kiss! :)

We're in our new jammies and ready to go look at Christmas lights now!

Christmas morning! Let's see what Santa brought us....

Oh, it must be really good....

And oh, WE must have been really good....

What a heap o' fun at the Ferrill's!













The children woke us up at 5:30 a.m. Christmas morning. All six of them. Singing "We wish you a Merry Christmas" at the top of their lungs. Can you tell we are ready for a long Christmas nap?

Rob was so tired he had to pull up a chair to fry the bacon! This Christmas definitely goes down as one of my favorites. We laughed so much and just had some great family time together. Thank you Lord for allowing our family to grow! And thank you Lord for the Reason we celebrate...God became flesh and dwelt among us...

I LOVE IT!!! What an awesome blog!! The kids looked SO excited!!! It's funny...I saw a lot of the same things under your tree that was under ours! :) Was Kimmie & Quan excited or what? Did they understand what happens on Christmas? I don't think Sadie did....I'm sure she did after it was over though. Thanks for sharing your wonderful family pictures and photos of your day!! We feel so blessed to be a part of it in some way!! We love & miss you guys!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
Love ya,

Merry Christmas Yall! Thanks for sharing the pictures! We know what you mean about a "special" Christmas because of our babies being home! It was Amazing! Hopefully I can get it together soon and post some pics!

Ps. Thanks for the card and donation!! The card made me cry and you and Rob have such a giving heart! You'll never know just how much that money will help a little one in the "Cleft Healing Home!"
Thank you!!!

Glad y'all had such a great Christmas. There is nothing like the look of a child on Christmas morning. Of, course, your kids were good, was there ever any doubt. Hope you have a safe trip to the beach and get some sand between your toes for me. We will miss you at church, but see you after the new year. Love to all. Ethel.

Oh - it looks like y'all had so much fun! I think my favorite pics are: Kimmie with the shoes (first picture), Quan hugging the spiderman (I actually teared up!), Carlie's look with the blanket, and Colby and Clay with pure excitement on their faces!! I'm glad y'all had such a special Christmas.
love, DeEtte

Looks like a great Christmas at the Ferrill house. I love all the photos of the kids, but the one of your honey sitting to fry the bacon. That is priceless.
Hope you have a very Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Ferrill family!
It looks like you had fun, and so did the kids! Great pics, and I hope you enjoy your time at the beach!
I'm so glad I "found" your family in Cyberland!
