|As part of our Advent celebration, we memorized Luke 2:1-20 as a family.|
|We loved, loved using this Advent devotional this year. It was perfect for our kids, ages 7 and 3.|
|After a big melt, we got another snow and had a white Christmas after all.|
|I've got some new things to read!|
|How sweet is this paper nativity? You can download/print it from here.|
We had a wonderful day rejoicing in Christ's birth and being together. My parents gave us the generous gift of a new prime lens for our camera, and I'm excited to use it for food photography and blogging. My husband noticed me wandering around taking pictures of the tree, etc. the other day and commented "gratuitous picture taking--mommy must be on vacation!" Indeed. I'm thankful for the time of rest and celebration. It has been a busy, full, good year.
