Galations 2:20-21

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly." Galations 2:20-21

Merry {Belated} Christmas!

Okay, so I realize I'm a little late on this one.

Hope you all had a blessed Christmas. We started off our celebration of Christ's birth by gathering at our church for a reflective Christmas Eve service. The baby was so well behaved. We didn't even have to leave the sanctuary. It was nice to be able to focus on the sermon and reflect on the true meaning of this season. We spend the rest of the evening at my parent's house with good food and good company of about 50 family members and church friends. Christmas day we spent a nice day at my husband's grandparent's house and his side of the family. All in all I think Gideon had a good first Christmas. And probably too many gifts for a 10 week old.

Here is a video and few pictures...Happy New Year to all!

I'm glad you had a nice Christmas! What types of gifts did Gideon get?

Hope your family had a nice Christmas, Rachael! Gideon got plenty of clothes (he's growing like a weed!), a play gym from my parents that he really likes. It's fun to watch him bat at the toys hanging above him (plus it gives me about a good 20 minutes to get something done..or eat...or just relax :)), and a few other toys that he's not old enough to play with. I think we have to have to have another kid soon so this guy doesn't get spoiled!
