Merry Christmas!

Today, we remember the reason for the season and give thanks for the birth of Jesus.

The Hubster and I are spending the day together and with some friends who feel just like our extended family.

Tomorrow, we make our way to visit everyone, but today we’re happy to drink hot chocolate, stay in our jammies, and watch some Christmas Vacation!

I wish for you to have a wonderful day with your family and friends.

The 13th Gift isn’t really a devotional, but looks like a really good story to read this time of year.

This book really touched me last year and I think we all need these reminders. 🙂

The first week of January was also a week of vacation for us. So while most people headed back to work after the holidays, we spent the week hibernating from the cold and doing basically nothing.

I’m sure you think I’m kidding, but I took a break from my pajamas to throw a New Year’s Eve party, took a picture to post on Instagram every day, and then spent more time in my pajamas.

Okay, so maybe I did a little more than that.  Come on in and see if I’m telling the truth 🙂
