We have a new number for the month of January! I'm sorry this information so late, but with recovering from Christmas, celebrating J's birthday, celebrating our 8th anniversary, and taking a class during the Christmas break 2013 has started at full speed. So, I apologize for just now getting our new number out. Here it is.......

We had a wonderful Christmas break! It was so great to spend time with our families and celebrate the birth of Jesus. I love Christmas time! Christmas to me is such a reminder of the gift Jesus gave us by coming to earth as a baby in order to give us the gift of salvation. I feel like I worship so much more deeply during Christmas because of the overflow of my love and gratitude for God sending Jesus to offer mankind salvation. Don't hear me wrong, I am grateful throughout the entire year for the gift God gave us, but Christmas is just a reminder to take time and really focus on God's gift to us, His son Jesus.
Matt and I traveled to Arkansas to spend time with our families and then we went to Oklahoma to spend time with Jacque's extended family. The end of our Christmas break became eventful when most of us came down with stomach virus. The stomach virus worked it's way around the family and I think there were only three that were spared. Even though we passed around a stomach virus, I would not trade the time we got to spend with our families!
Here is a picture of all the kids in their Christmas eve pajamas! They are so cute!
