O Little Town of Bethlehem

We had staring roles at our adults only ward Christmas party. Okay, so we just had to sit there while the choir sang, but it was a lot of pressure to keep our little baby Jesus quiet the whole time. Rylan did great...what a special job! I am afraid all three of us are almost out of the age group where they ask you to do this sort of thing...representing a young Mary and Joseph and all. But it was sure sweet to be holding our little one and to reflect on the emotions and feelings of that sacred night so long ago. The coming of our Savior and King in such humble circumstances is truly remarkable. May we all feel of His love this Christmas season.



Are you guys catching on to my Christmas music titles? Can you really get too much Christmas music this time of year?

Love the titles, and no you can't get too much Christmas music this time of year. So sad we missed the Christmas party. Glad to here it went good though.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
