Christmas Morning

The Matthews family enjoyed a great year in 2013.  We love spending time together and the kids are at fun ages of learning, exploring, and coming into their own.  Jhon is excited for 2014 and turning 13 in May; he cannot wait for Jr High as well.  He is very loving to his siblings and excited for his second Christmas with his new family.  Derly enjoyed swim lessons this fall.  She is very smart and loves learning about photography.  She has a natural eye for photography and will be fun to see how she will use it in her future.  She comes along on a lot of my photo shoots.  Estefania is excited to turn 9 next month.  She loved Dance this last fall, she tried ballet and hip hop, she loved being on stage in front of everyone.  Ryan cannot wait for soccer in the spring.  He also loves drawing and wrestling with his brothers.  Ryan is very sweet and caring.  Prospero is very active and loves to do whatever his siblings are doing.  He loves Starwars, ToyStory and Thomas the Train.  He enjoys preschool and having friends over.  He loves his alone time with mom and dad while the kids are at school.  I am thankful for the another year as a family.  I am thankful to God for sending his son Jesus and celebrating his birth on Christmas.  I look forward to see how God will move in the next year.  I am so proud of Jim, on the tail end of his seminary journey.  We pray you and your family find rest this Christmas season.  Rest in Him, place your cares and anxieties on the Lord and trust in the Almighty for He cares for you.  Merry Christmas!!!
