The Reason for the Season

Now that 2010 has come to an end, we can all take a minute to catch our breath.  It's so easy to get wrapped up in the craziness of the holidays, which is why we were so grateful to have an opportunity to stop and remember the true reason for the season.  During the Season of Advent, our church celebrates by lighting a candle each Sunday leading up to Christmas Day.  This year, our little family had the honor of lighting the 'Candle of Love' on the Fourth Sunday.  It was a very special moment for us that we will remember for many Christmases to come.

All dressed up and ready to go!

Lolli and Pop joined us on the big day.

We tried to get a picture of the girls, but as you can see, they were way more interested in their shiny shoes!

Layla is on the edge of her seat waiting for her time to shine!

Jenna and Daddy are talking through the plan just one more time.  She wanted to make sure he did it right.

And here we go...

We did it!!!

Layla and Jenna were absolute angels through the whole thing...never mind, the candle-lighting happened within the first 5 minutes of the service and we rushed them straight to the nursery afterward.  Generally, babies and fire don't mix, but in this case, it was breathtaking.  Thank God for His Son and thank God for our babies!
