Merry Christmas!

These were the pics that we put on the Christmas cards that we mailed out. Just wanted everyone to see them. Speaking of Christmas, does anyone else feel all bah humbug about the holiday? Did you just MAKE yourself put up the tree? Did you dread the shopping? Did licking the envelopes make you CRINGE!?! (okay..that's any time of the year) But all this Christmas hub lub has me down right unhappy. Christmas has become so commercialized and all that I'm so sick of why the world celebrates the season! I told Jonathan last night that it wouldn't bother me one bit if I never, I mean NEVER heard "Santa Baby" again. I'm so tired of Santa, elves, reindeer, and Happy Holidays that I'm about to make my own Christmas Day. (Maybe in August, since there's no holidays there) I miss every thing being about Jesus. My goodness, I even saw a church on my way to school that advertised a BREAKFAST WITH SANTA!! A CHURCH! God help us to keep our focus off the rush and on the baby born over 2,ooo years ago. (OK, I'm now stepping off my soap box) :) Merry Christmas!
