merry christmas

One thing is for sure, this Christmas is different from any other we've had as a family! It's been quite a year, and Aaron and I feel that we are abundantly blessed. 

This year we are spending Christmas at home with my parents in San Diego, just the six of us. Really, it's like any other weekend. Except we can feel just how special this Christmas weekend is. For over a month now we've been talking with the kids about getting ready to celebrate Jesus' birthday. We've read stories about his birth, we've been doing Jesse Tree devotions every night.

And it all comes down to these special days we get to spend as a family remembering the sacrifice that God was making for us when he was born in the flesh. A tiny baby who came into the world to save a sinful humanity.

Yes, today and tomorrow we are remembering the birth of Christ. And we are thanking Him for the love and hope He gives us each and every day. 

Blessings to you all as you celebrate during this special time of year! And...

From our family to yours!
