This last weekend was full of festivity – a youth group party at our house Friday night, to a ladies craft day on Saturday, and Christmas carolling with the church Sunday afternoon. And that was just the church events. Our family is also celebrating hard. Jessica is baking up a storm, we are making/giving something away every day for the 12 days before Christmas, we’re visiting with folks, and we’re reading and talking a lot about why Christmas is so important. Yes. It does all add up to make life a bit crazier than usual. But when you’ve got something as amazing as God coming to earth to save us, we’re pretty sure that a bit of extra celebration is in order!
