after Christmas morning at mom & dad's house i headed home to pick my sleepy husband up, he only was able to get three or four hours of sleep after working his overnight before we headed up to his mom's house to spend Christmas afternoon there. we had a really delicious dinner and then opened gifts & visited for a while before we had to head home so mike could get a little more sleep before he headed back into work.
i love so much that we live near enough to our families that it's pretty easy for us to get together whenever we'd like. that will be amazing once noah arrives in about three months! one of my favorite parts of our entire Christmas was hearing gracie tell Jesus "happy birthday!" because that is really what it's all about :)
"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this." Isaiah 9:6-7
