"Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store..."

Ryan and I had so much fun on Saturday "doorbell ditching" Christmas goodies with some friends, the Fordhams. Their little boys (ages 4 and 2) were absolutely adorable about it. Before we left, they insisted on "practicing" and putting on "disguises." Ryan was dubbed "The Fast One," and he was the boy's top pick for a doorbell ditching partner. It was pretty cute to see them all running away from the doors with their capes flying behind them--even Ryan wore one!

At the end of the night, Ry and I felt "in the Christmas spirit" for the first time this December. We've been so busy this month that we haven't even thought about Christmas! I am so glad that we are now in the holiday mood. Thank you, Fordhams, for including us in your family tradition! (We need to get some kids of our own!)

We had a very uplifting and spiritual meeting at church this morning, filled with beautiful Christmas music. Then the lesson in the women's meeting was especially meaningful, as we read and discussed Luke 2 together. I feel very happy today and am so grateful for my Savior.

Here's a great little video. I recommend it!

Merry Christmas!


  1. We are so glad you joined us! Ryan was fast, so fast that the picture I tried to take of him is just kind of a fuzzy blur. You are welcome to borrow my children anytime you like. I agree the greatest things about Christmas "do not come from the store".


  3. Hmm- somebody hit our house with goodies- but I didn't think it was you guys- WAS It?


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
