Merry Christmas! As a gift, I give you:
the first photos I have of all four of us together,
(those are our “roller coaster” faces. As in, “What a roller coaster ride this season can be!”),
a sweet moment (Lydia, playing with her new doll house),
and a brief, brief post.
I hope your Christmas was a beautiful one – not too stressful, but not too lonely either, and full of wonder at God’s goodness in sending his Son to live with us. We had a lovely Christmas, and some of it even happened at our house: I hosted Christmas dinner for the first time ever, and I loved having all of my family together in our wee home.
I want to tell you more–about dinner, about our Jesse tree, about the fun ways we found to share Christmas with Lydia–but I don’t think I have time: tea, The Book Thief and naptime are calling. Maybe I’ll write it all down before Christmas rolls around again.
