December 26th and a Christmas Recap

It is funny how crazy busy life is in December until December 26th.  During this season I seriously feel as though some days I have to plan down to every minute so as to make sure I can get it all in.  Don't get me wrong, it is a good busy...parties, programs, shopping, wrapping, baking, church events, family time, etc.  And then you have December 26th...a day of relief and sadness mixed together.  Please tell me I am not the only one with the after-Christmas blues?!?!  So after living on adrenaline for the past month, we took it easy this morning and let Jude play with his new toys.  Then, around noon Matt & I went on a date, which was so nice. :)  After, we came back home to Jude and continued exactly what we did throughout the morning.

As for was just such a wonderful time.  We are so blessed to have families to celebrate with.  I am finding as I get older the gifts are definitely not as important as just being with the people that I love and care about. Both Christmas Eve and Christmas day we were running back and forth from Matt's family's and my family's gatherings.  In addition to all of our celebrating, Matt took our youth group to serve breakfast on Christmas morning to a homeless shelter.  We also kept another tradition with us going to candlelight service at our church on Christmas.  Here are a few moments we captured throughout the two days.
