Merry Christmas!!!

I love CHRISTmas!

Here is a quote (which explains my feelings of Christmas, better than I could have put in words myself) from President Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk in the First Presidency Christmas Devotional of this year:

"This is a season of rejoicing! A season of celebration! A wonderful time when we acknowledge that our Almighty God sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to redeem the world! To redeem us!

It is a season of charitable acts of kindness and brotherly love. It is a season of being more reflective about our own lives and about the many blessings that are ours. It is a season of forgiving and being forgiven.

But perhaps most of all, let it be a season of seeking the Lamb of God, the King of Glory, the Everlasting Light of the World, the Great Hope of Mankind, the Savior and Redeemer of our souls."

I am so grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ. May we all remember him on this wonderful day...

Down below are some Christmas Eve pictures of my kids (there are no Christmas pictures yet, since it is only one in the morning):
