We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 This is our favorite time of year! (and the only holiday that we really decorate for)
With the kids being so young, I am not sure if they really get it yet. I don't think they know the real reason why we are celebrating; or why there is a tree in our house; or if they even know that soon there will be presents under the tree for them. But that doesn't really matter. The adults of this family are excited for them.
We can't wait to start our traditions. We can't wait to see their faces when they open their gifts. We can't wait to tell them that a baby was born to save us from sin... and to have them know what that really means.
We have always liked to keep things simple, but this year we got a real tree! And had the kids help decorate it. 


Our tree!
 While putting the lights on I noticed a nest it the tree! I am not sure how it survived the cutting, getting stuffed in our van, and then shaken while being put up in our house, but it did. (there were no eggs in it and most birds have flown south already, so no birds were harmed or out of a home) This is amazing to me and I will be taking the nest out and preserving it for future decorating. I already put one real nest in our tree every year. That one is from our first year in our home (and our first year being married). It was found in a trailer hitch and it has bits and pieces from our yard woven in. So having a nest from our first real tree is something special too.

We hope you have a great holiday season and that you can find peace in your heart. We hope you are surrounded with loved ones, can make peace with your past, and remember those you have lost along the way. 
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
