It Begins...

Well hello friends! I hope you all had a very lovely weekend. We had a WONDERFUL weekend! I realized yesterday though that this will be our last "calm" weekend for quite awhile! CHRISTMAS IS BEGINNING!

This coming weekend we will be with Grant's family to celebrate Christmas with them. We should have a wonderful time and I am going to spend this week wrapping gifts till my fingers don't work anymore!

Then the following weekend we are headed to Texas! I haven't seen the twins since August and it has been far too long, I think they are speaking in sentences now and have IQ scores of 196. But that's okay. I will hug and kiss all over them! Aunt Jen will be in full form!

Then the following weekend is..... drum roll..... our one year anniversary!!!!! HALLELUJAH and AMEN! I don't know if we are going to go anywhere, Christmas is taking alot of our "play money", but just spending a weekend together will be wonderful. I cannot believe one year is almost here! It seems like just yesterday I was puking on my wedding day :)

It is time for my favorite Christmas song of the week:

Silent Night
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

It amazes me to think of our sweet Jesus as a little baby boy. A baby boy who cried and cooed and snuggled and sniffled and yawned. And I think of Mary, so young and frightened and then seeing her son, the Messiah, and holding Him and KNOWING that everything was gonna be okay. What a joyful, glorious night. That was the night that the Savior, the deliverer from all evil came to earth. That is why we celebrate Christmas. We celebrate Christmas because that was the day that our Savior came! Praise the Lord!

Hey Jen, sorry I haven't stopped by in a while, things have been way hectic with us! I really hope you have a fab time with the twins next weekend, and I hope you have a lovely anniversary weekend too. That is so special- a first anniversary, we were most proud on ours this past June.

Enjoy yourselves these next few weeks, and be sure to keep us all posted! xxx
