Christmas is such a beautiful time of year no matter where you live or what you do. It is a time to reflect on our Savior Jesus Christ and all that he has done for us. And it is a time to reflect on the importance of his birth and what it truly meant to have him walk, and teach on this earth. Christmas is also a time to spend time with family if you are able to do so. Joel and I were able to see a little bit of both our families over Christmas this year, even with the crazy snow fall that we have been having.
On Christmas Eve we went to Joel's Parents house to have dinner, read the Christmas story out of Luke and open presents. This is usually a huge event, but due to the weather only a few of his siblings were able to make it home for Christmas this year. Then on the drive home our car broke. I know that things like this happen to everyone, and it really was not that big of a deal, except that it was a blizzard and we had no heat or power in the car, and had to wait for Joel's dad to come help us out. We were so thankful to be safe at home later that night.
Joel and I got a stepping stone for the yard that says families are forever.
