And So This is Christmas.....

It's finally here. The season of anticipation is over, and Christmas has finally arrived. For many reasons, this is one of my favorite moments of the entire year. The moments just before Christmas arrives.

For our family, Christmas has always held strong traditions. Our Christmas Eve service at our church is one of those moments that means something to both Beth and I. We've attended for years, and every year, the anticipation comes to an end with a candle light service.

This year, we wish that your family be blessed. We wish that as you take a few moments with your family, that as you celebrate - you remember that moment 2000 years ago when God sent his son into this world. That moment when Jesus came.

Here's a few images from our daughter's first Christmas Eve service.

And one image from tonight as we exchanged gifts as a family. Tomorrow will be a long day of extended family celebration - so for us, this was our moment. Our moment together as a family.

Merry Christmas :)
