Among all the hustle and bustle...

We had a really nice lesson on Sunday at Church. It was about making sure that the Christ is the center of Christmas. Unfortunately I was only able to enjoy the first portion of the lesson because the rest of the time I was walking the halls with my ALMOST 18-month-old (can't wait!!). But, it's true that there are so many things that happen this time of year. I sometimes hate turning the calendar to December because it fills up so fast. But, all the things that happen...I love. Like family nights and parties. It's just hard to balance all of them. Oh, and then to remember Christ during all of this. I am especially going to try to make sure that my children know the true meaning of Christmas. They are good about saying that it's Jesus' birthday, but they need to understand and realize the importance of this special holiday. I truly enjoy getting together with family and sharing stories and just being in a room filled with love. Hey...that's the meaning of Christmas right there! Christ has so much love for us and being with those we love shows that.

We are doing something fun with the kids for Family Night tonight. I will have pictures to post in the next day or so. Merry Christmas!!
