We just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! It's such a sweet time. This year my almost-three year old is understanding the whole "Santa" thing, and although that's been a lot of fun, we've also been trying to teach her the true meaning of Christmas. We've told her the story of Christ's birth over and over. That along with having a new baby in the home, I've been especially overwhelmed by the miracle that came in a little bundle so long ago.
I'm so grateful for a Heavenly Father who willingly sent His eldest son to this world, all because we needed a Savior. I'm grateful for Mary and her example. I'm grateful for foreseeing wise men, humble shepherds, and a trusting and faithful Joseph. But most of all I'm grateful for my Savior. His atonement changes everything! I have gained new understanding of that atonement this year, and more than ever I know I could not function without the gospel.
I hope this Christmas you are surrounded by the people you love, and that you feel Christ's love for you. Thank you for all your support throughout this year! Merry Christmas!
Brooke, Whitney, and Soni
PS Soni had her baby! All the babies are here, so starting Jan. 2nd, we're ready to go. And guess what our New Year's resolution is-update our blog once a week! :)
