This weekend was filled with family time and memory making moments.
Grace and Hannah were excited to put on their new dresses
And carry candles in church.
Ava celebrated her very first Christmas
She was at such a fun age to dress up
even at night.
As usual, we made our birthday cake for Jesus. This year Grace wanted to make cupcakes shaped into a cross.
Singing to our Savior makes the joyous event feel so real. It is a great way for both the young and old sense the most important birthday in history.
Another first for us this Christmas literally brought tears. Part of it is captured right here.
After reading Jesus' birth story verse by verse through Advent, Grace (6) read the entire story from my Bible for the first time.
And what a beautiful story it is. Immanuel - God WITH us - is here. In our highest of highs and lowest of lows we do not walk alone. Christ is present. Always.
