We didn’t buy a Christmas tree this year since I was gone most of the days leading up to Christmas, but things were no less festive. Our family had a fun time opening gifts in the morning, and my brother received a replacement playstation 2 (his broke months back) with some new games (i.e. guitar hero I & II, DDR, and more).

I made my parents a collage of family photographs from our road trip to canada last year.


For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the LORD Almighty
will accomplish this.
Isaiah 9:6-7
