Merry Christmas Eve!
we’ve had a busy and eventful Advent season. i can’t believe it’s already Christmas! a few highlights from our season are: picking out the tree, all three of us getting sick, having Sophia’s first hot chocolate, mama and daddy planning a cool diy gift for Sophia(another post), playing with the nativity set(can’t you hear Sophia saying, ‘of course Tinker bell had to be there to worship Jesus too, Mama’), daily admiring of the tree and all the lights and decorations, mama crazy busy with etsy sales, potty training(WHAT!? why did i start that in such a busy season, you ask? ahhhh who knows…cause i’m crazy?), getting a cool advent wreath and doing daily advent devotionals.
it has been a beautiful, precious, crazy season. Sophia is at such a fun and busy age. we are very excited to celebrate together tomorrow!
here are a few pictures from our month:
can you even handle that face? ha. she says “cheese” now whenever i take a photo of her.

Isaiah 9: 2-7
“The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shone.
3 You have multiplied the nation;
you have increased its joy;
they rejoice before you
as with joy at the harvest,
as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
4 For the yoke of his burden,
and the staff for his shoulder,
the rod of his oppressor,
you have broken as on the day of Midian.
5 For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult
and every garment rolled in blood
will be burned as fuel for the fire.
6 For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon[d] his shoulder,
and his name shall be called[e]
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 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.”
Merry Christmas friends! we send you our love and pray the Lord reminds you of Himself this Holiday.
