Oh, Christmas tree!

This month is so full and busy for us.  There’s more celebration packed into it than we hardly know what to do with, BUT it is wild joy.  Both of our babies were born near Christmas, two years and three days apart.  So we have birthday festivities amongst all the Christmas festivities.  Between holiday parties, family gatherings, parades, gingerbread house making, extra church celebrations, etc., we find ourselves having to be pretty intentional about how to slow down and savor this month and all it holds!  We can get overworked, exhausted and irritable in a hurry if we aren’t careful.

With every weekend packed for the whole month of December, we headed out into the freezing cold on November 30th to chop down our Christmas tree.  If it didn’t happen then, it just wouldn’t have happened.  Both babies were pretty sick so we were in and out as quick as could be.
