december recap

so, this is intended to be a record of my family. a diary of our significant and not so significant days. one day to be printed and bound and treasured. lately, i have struggled to keep up with my posting. i could make a list of my excuses, but that would leave me less time to catch up. so, without further ado, here is a look at our family's December:
we were in a perpetual state of excitement for Christmas to come.
we decked the halls and trimmed the tree, we made our home a winter wonderland.Avery learned some new tricks, like walking, (at 14 months, my slowest starter by a long shot. this deserves, and will get it's own post soon), hiding, and taking off clothes. when the big day finally came, we spent Christmas Eve with family and friends, and one very special visitor.Avery wasn't really into the big guy, so we didn't snap a pic of her on his lap, but here she is looking festive. Christmas day brought more family, friends, and gifts. everyone got everything that they wanted. and then some. and we took the time to recognized the greatest gift of all, one we can and do enjoy all year round. the gift of the Savior, Jesus Christ. we are so grateful for all the many blessings we enjoy as a family, and we recognize that each person, each day, our every happiness is due to the infinite atonement of Him. as we start a new year and dust off our resolutions (mine seem to be the same each year) we do so with and increase in our knowledge that He lives! i pray that we all stand a little taller with the desire to be more like Him.
