December is always a crazy busy fun cold month. This year it was just like that. We enjoyed it so much though. Husband enjoyed his time off from school. I enjoyed all the parties and get togethers with family. It was just a happy month. There was so much giving, service, and joy all around us we couldn't help but be grateful and celebrate the true meaning of christmas and that is Jesus birth.
Our hearts were full the whole month.
