This time of the year is bittersweet for so many of us, but it is such a special time to celebrate our God who sent his only son to this sinful world. That is the most precious gift ever! In the midst of the traffic, lines, and baking, I pray that we will all continue to remember what we are truly celebrating. Jesus. What a sweet name. Merry CHRISTmas!

Being our first Christmas without Magdalena, it didn't seem right last year to send out a Christmas card without her. We couldn't make any decisions without thinking it didn't "fit", so in the end we decided that it was o.k. to just not send one out. This year I was determined to begin the tradition all over again, and so, here it is. This was our Christmas card this year. Please forgive the mistake that I made with the quotation marks! I forgot them on the ends! And it is from "The Roberts Family" because Magdalena continues to be in our hearts and is fresh on our minds this time of year. Jeremiah 29:11 has been on my heart as I was thinking of what would be on our Christmas card, and it is our hope that it reminds you of God's many promises.
