It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Our hearts are full and the excitement is rising.
We are so grateful for so many things and are blessed to have so much.
There truly is magic in the air, especially having our little boys and the spirit they bring this time of year.
It has been so fun shopping, decorating and getting into Christmas.
We have also enjoyed seeing Ashton really understand the true meaning of Christmas and remind us about Jesus. We are lucky to teach him in nursery and I am astonished at the things he remembers and applies to everyday life.
My mom (Mimi) sent us a package yesterday and inside were 2 M&M filled candy canes. Ashton immediately turned the candy cane upside down and said "J for Jesus". We had learned about the shepherds on Sunday and I had given out a candy cane craft and told a few things that the candy cane symbolizes. I'm so glad that he remembered.
As fun as it is to talk about Santa and the fun gifts and treats he may bring (if they are good) it also warms our hearts to see the boys play with the nativity and repeat the story while acting it out.
We hope you all have found the magic of Christmas-the light of our Savior. Count your blessings this season and remember why we celebrate.
