Some Christmas Pics

Christmas is here. Yesssssssssssssssssssssss.

My dad (grandkids call him Cuz) spent Christmas with us. I am not sure if he was ready for the noise that is us. But even Flash couldn't contain his joy for Cuz being here.

Me and my Christmas babe. And my new scarf.

I am raising my kids with Jesus in their hearts...and Macs on their laps.

Christmas faces.

This girl woke me up at 6:30am looking just like this.

This boy had to be woken up. And he looked just like this.

Fun times.

Cuz got a stocking, too.

Flash was the happiest of all with his stocking goodies.

So I'm pretty sure that Jack and I got the same hat from Gap, except mine is black. Is that strange?

Cindy said...

I definitely wake up looking more like Levi than Lily Kate. My daughter is just the opposite. Some mornings she will get up, get dressed, make her own lunch and take care of the pups before I even get the urge to open my eyes. Sometimes I wonder if she's really mine. Your Dad looks like he is really enjoying Christmas time with your kids.

A few things that strike me: first of all, your Angela is just beautiful! Then I thought, oh I love the picture of the kids with their Cuz and the dog! Lily Kate in her dress is simply gorgeous (have Keith show you, if you don't know, how to clean a gun)! Finally, I was dumb-struck by the pure beauty and richness of the wood for the stair railing and floors! Ooh! Pretty!

May your family be blessed in every way,

PS It's snowing again here in CO! Yay God!!

Hey, my 5 year old looks like that in the morning too!

Great pics, with only one problem. That needs to be a Dell on her lap, not a Mac! :)hee! Oue youth pastor is all about the Mac too--whatever!

This is a fun game to play, check it out...if your Mac can handle it!

Oh I kid.

Fran said...

Well, that is just about perfect huh?! Those children are to die for. Daddy, you better watch out with that gorgeous Lily Kate! Could she be any cuter?! :)

I pray that 2008 is a year of richness in Jesus and blessings in your home and family.

Thank you Travis for all you do for me through your music. You are an amazing vessel!

Merry Christmas, Travis! Wow - Macs for the kids!! We got my oldest daughter an MP3 player and a nice Karioke machine. But dang if it didn't stop working the next day! Now we have to go through the hassle of returning it and ordering it again (online). Yuck.
My youngest daughter is simply thrilled with her Barbie house. :)
Me? I can join the rest of the world now. I finally got an I-pod.

Travis said...

Hey, Dionna!

No mac for the's my mac! I am simply "training them in the way they should go!" : >)

Adam said...

What a blessing you are, dude. Thanks so much for sharing with us that you are a normal guy who just loves Jesus. You have GOT to come to Chattanooga sometime-and NOT just for Beth M. and the ladies!!! Haha...God bless, man.

By the way, "Its a Wonderful Life" is an AWESOME movie!


Bec said...

What a very Merry Christmas!

I didn't know you had a dachshund! We have two and love them to death! Aren't they the best?

Lisa Pierre said...

Wonderful Christmas pics. Hope yours was very merry.

Stephanie (Ocean Mommy) said...

Looks like Christmas was wonderful! Thanks for sharing the pic's with us.

Praying that God pours out blessing after blessing on your precious family this year!

Precious, precious family!
And I've never seen "It's a Wonderful Life" either. We may be the only two humans alive that can say that. And if asked, "How's that working for ya'?" We'd probably both say- just fine!

Travis -
Got it! It was YOUR new mac! Sorry for my misunderstanding! :)
You'll have to let us know how you like it. I've heard Mac's are great.

Bev Brandon said...

I think you made Cuz (and yes, that is so Cajun!) a happy man. The photos are precious. What treasure you have from Above. Isaiah 33:6 - the fear of your good God is the key to your treasure. He is the stability of your times Travis to your family and to us through your life and music. May God use you to make many stable in HIM this year.

Looks like a great Christmas!
Blessings to you and your family!

precious - thanks for sharing!!!

Michelle Bentham said...

Well, as apt as I am... I never knew you had a blog. I have been so blessed by your Worship music both at Lifeway and LPL events and on the many cds I've purchased since that introduction. Your family is precious and you are too funny! Okay, so Happy New Year, Travis and family. May God bless you as you bless others.

Marble Slab is one of my favorites as well!

Blessings to you and yours.

Merry "late" Christmas and Happy New Year, Travis to you and your precious family!

I am loving the "wake up" pictures. Don't all girls wake up at 6:30 am looking just like that?! Love it. Too cute!!


Angela @ Refresh My Soul Blog said...

I just had to stop by to tell you that you should get the High School Musical sing it game! We have so much fun playing it! If your kids like the musical they will love this. Good family fun. :)

laura said...

My favorite pic is Lily Kate all dressed up at the crack of dawn. LOVE THAT! Of course, Adam loves the pic with the Mac. :) Glad you guys had a great Christmas! Praying for you!

PK Holli said...

Wow, looks like you & your family had a fun Christmas!! i probably looked like that when i woke up too. And my dog also got a stocking, and she was the first to open hers, after that she stood in front of all of us as we opened or stockings, it was hilarious.
Love and Laughter!!

Faith @ The Great Adventure said...
