Merry Christmas!

This Christmas, we celebrate the greatest gift we could imagine our family growing from two to three. Beckett, we love you more than we can possibly say.
Because we have a six-week-old to handle, for the first time ever, we're not traveling for the holidays. Matt's parents visited this past week, so we were able to celebrate the start of Hanukkah and an early Christmas with them, and my dad and step-mom will be here for New Year's.
Beckett made it through his first church service yesterday as we braved the crowds at the Christmas Eve service, but today, we're staying home and celebrating with just our little family.
I made fabulous cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and Matt has a pot roast planned for dinner. I can't wait!
Merry Christmas to you all! I hope your Christmas is as wonderful and blessed as ours.

And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. And while they were there, the time came for her to be delivered. And she gave birth to her first-born son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. And in that region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. And the angel said to them, "Be not afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people; for to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a babe wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger." And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among men with whom he is pleased!"
--Luke 2:4-14
