We had a wonderful time celebrating the birth of Christ last night at the Christmas Eve service, and the celebration will continue today with my immediate family and tomorrow with the extended family. Here is a sweet shot of me and Ella from last night:
I love that I look (and truly am) so happy! I think back to this time last year when I had a big heart-to-heart conversation with my husband in which he told me that I seemed sad 40% of the time. What a difference a year makes! Last year, all I wanted for Christmas was a baby...and I finally got her. This year, I truly have everything that I need. What a special gift to celebrate my baby's first Christmas!
Among so many other things, I'm blessed to be able to celebrate Ella's first Christmas with my husband and my family. We're surrounded by people who love us, and God is so good!
