Christmas time!

Christmas time is here! It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. We have busted out the Christmas PJs...decor is up, gifts have been it is just time to enjoy the season! 

We are really intentional with trying to be more Jesus, less Santa with Christmas. But, just in our daily life, we try to be about more Jesus, less world. But at Christmas time, I don't want the kids to get wrapped up in "me me me!" I want them to be servants of Christ every day, all year long. But Christmas time is a GREAT time to really focus on being servants. There are SO many opportunities to serve at Christmas, because EVERYONE is all about helping others at this time of year. And I LOVE that. 

With the gift giving that comes at Christmas- I just want them to know that Jesus truly is a gift to us. The grace He offers is a precious, perfect gift. It is far better than any gift we could ever get. And so far, Owen gets it! He summed it up perfectly while decorating the tree. He was putting an ornament on that looks like a wrapped gift and he said "Mommy, Jesus is the REAL gift and the best gift there ever will be." My heart about exploded. I was so thankful that he's listening and understanding. I hope he is falling in love with our Savior! 

We've started our 25 day Christmas devotional and I absolutely love it. Each night we have a family devo then we get to hang an ornament on the tree that corresponds with the scripture that was read in the devo. It is such a sweet, spirit filled time with my little family and I treasure it! 

Christmas PJs!! Sweetest brothers.

The boys got to meet Santa! :)

I am looking forward to more meaningful time with my family over the holidays!
