Merry Christmas!

I had a lot of ideas and plans this year for Christmas. However, other things came up and they kind of just went out the window. Does that ever happen to anyone else? Anyways, at least I did Christmas Cards this year! I LOVE how they turned out! Seriously... so beautiful! We had them printed on Linen-Pearlized paper and man... I LOVED them! Yes, I am a photo/design/paper geek.

We are heading out tomorrow to kick off some good ol' fashion holiday cheer! We are pretty excited to see our families! It's sometimes so hard to be far away, but always so amazing to be with them again! We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas this year! It will be for us and our families!

O Come, Emmanuel

   I truly don't care what religion anyone person decides to live- or if they chose to live one at all. I believe each one of us is entitled to our own free agency. Either way, we love everyone. This is what I believe.

      I also believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ with my whole heart. I believe he lived on this earth and still lives. I believe he atoned for all of our sins and heart aches. I believe He watches over us in ways we don't even see or understand. I firmly believe that one day we will return and live with him again some day.

    This Christmas Season, I have been struggling with some winter blues and it sure has been hard to find the Christmas Spirit. As I was browsing Facebook the other day, my sweet Joelle's husband had posted this video. I knew if he had shared it, it must have been good. It touched my heart so deeply watching this. It is BEYOND beautiful! Regardless of your religion, if you are a believer/follower of Christ, you NEED to watch this. The music is perfect and just amazing. The message is the most powerful though.
