Merry Christmas

Every year this picture gets harder to take--no one will sit still and we are never all looking at the camera. But rain, or shine, home or not, screaming or smiling--the picture will get taken.

Another year almost wrapped--it's been a hard, wonderful, interesting year for our family. I wouldn't give away one single day. We are blessed beyond measure. The kids are in bed awaiting the big day and for me it is melancholy for the sun to set on my favorite day of the year. Every year that goes by I grow more and more fond of Christmas Eve. To me, it is the best day of the year-a culmination of all the excitement and preparation of the entire Christmas season. A day largely without presents and focused more on the sacred birth that happened in a stable so many years ago. How I love my Savior. How increasingly grateful I am for him each year I grow older. Thanks be to God for his most precious gift.

Merry Christmas from our home to yours. We pray you feel the love and blessings of our Savior this beautiful Christmas season.
