Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas | Anchors Aweigh


Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Can yall believe Christmas is just around the corner? I mean literally, we are 2 days away from the most magical day of the year. The little kid in me is so excited! Before I sign off from the interwebs for a few days to be with family and celebrate the birth of our savior, I always like to share our Christmas card for the year. 

This is our fourth married Christmas and my favorite Christmas card yet. It's not the best quality (we got lazy and used a tripod this year), but we took our picture a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving, meaning Taylor Grace was still with us. She was in Heaven by the time they arrived in the mailboxes of friends and family, but she was still growing inside me when the picture was taken. I love that, and I love that the card has her sweet name included. This will be the only card she is in, and it will likely be the only card Darla is in as well, so it's just a special card to us this year :)

We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!

Luke 2: The Birth of Jesus

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to their own town to register.

So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

15 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

16 So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. 17 When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, 18 and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. 19 But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. 20 The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

21 On the eighth day, when it was time to circumcise the child, he was named Jesus, the name the angel had given him before he was conceived.

This is so amazing that Taylor is a part of your family picture! You are such a testament to the unconditional love every parent should offer their children, and you are and will continue to be amazing parents to your little angel and as your family continues to grow! I wish you a truly Merry Christmas! And a huge props on getting both dogs to look at the camera, a seemingly impossible task in our family!
