I wrote this on Christmas Eve — then we had to leave before it was published. Read as if it was published Dec. 24.
Merry Christmas everyone! Matt and I are driving to his mom’s house tonight for Christmas, then we are staying at my sister’s house overnight and waking up with her two little girls. I am SO excited — it will be a lot of fun to watch them the next morning. But I’m REALLY excited that we are going to our church’s Christmas Eve service. Life gets so busy that we all forget what is actually important during this season. Christ IS the reason for the season – not presents or trees or lights or garland. I am actually glad that we have less money to spend this year, because it really helps us focus on what’s important. Anyway, I thought I would post a few pictures we took together with Matt’s brother, Danny. We wanted to give their mom something really special this year, and we figured something we made would mean more to her than something we bought. So we made her Christmas photos of us! We really had to think on our feet since all ambient light was gone by the time we started shooting. I borrowed a christmas gift mom got for me and we had some fun doing a few goofy poses.
