More Christmas Memories!

The Rooney Boys

The Rooney boys and their cousins decked out in Christmas outfits made by Aunt Jackie

Sean hardly ever took off his coonskin cap!


Bringing in the tree.....Patrick working hard while Sean poses. Love Bill's tennis shorts! :-)


I choose joy, I choose Jesus!

Even though all of the light in my sky is dim, I choose to celebrate the birth of Jesus and the hope that it brings. The gift of everlasting life was bought for us by the birth of a tiny baby in a simple manger 2,000 years ago. For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given. The hope that was born that silent holy night is what sustains me. May your family enjoy that same hope this season and always! Merry Christmas from the Rooney family!

I'll stop lurking and finally post a comment -- know that people like me who are half way across the country are thinking of you and Erynn and your families.

You and your family are never far from my thoughts and prayers. I am wishing you a Holiday Season filled with LOVE for you and your family.

The outlook you are trying to maintain through the pain of the holiday season is truly inspiring. You and Erynn have handled every obstacle over the past year with more grace and courage than I ever could. I wish you and your family a much brighter 2010.

AMEN, AMEN and AMEN!

What a beautiful post. How proud must the One be of your strength and courage as you serve Him! I know your husband and son are standing beside Him, filled with the peace of Eternity, and praying for you.

God bless you and your family - I'm keeping you in my thoughts.
