Christmas 2008 at the Hellwig House

Posted by Gabrielle

We spent a quiet Christmas day at home as some of us were sick. But we still had a wonderful day as you can see!
Our "official" Christmas portrait!
The tree before we opened presents. This is always one of my favorite pictures to take! ;)
One of Mommy's favorites: sausages from Timothy
Christianna opens her presents
Arianne received a bunch of notecards and stationery from Timothy

My present from Arianne, "The Last of the Mohicans", one of my favorite stories.

Timothy received it too, from Christianna!

Benaiah was not so sure about this present thing. It didn't take him long to warm up to it!
"I'm nobody's fool, I know how to open a box!" However, at first he liked the box better than the present inside it!

Toby is very pleased with his new insects coloring book. To date, he has colored most of it, a main factor being that he also got a couple other coloring books, new colored pencils and crayons for Christmas and had to try those out as well!
Jedidiah opens his presents. In case you are wondering, the green bear was not a Christmas present. The little boys like to bring their stuffed animals down to open presents with them! ;)
This was probably Elliot's favorite present, a slingshot!

We pray you all had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends and we look forward to another new year of God's mercies!
