Merry Christmas

I hope your Christmas was as good as mine. The Christmas season has been such a great time.

Last week in Sunday School we had an awesom lesson about the birth of our Savior. Our teacher encouraged us to think about the way Mary, Joseph, the animals and the wise men and how they felt and really put ourselves in their shoes. The teacher also had a crown of thorns and he asked someone to explain her thoughts. She explained how even though at first she didn't want to think about it at all. She thought it was a sign of hurt, and pain. The more she thought about the more she saw it as a sign of love. That our Savior loved us enough to take upon him our sins and burdons.

I realize that the crown of thorns didn't have to do with the Savior's birth, but it really hit me, and made me appreciate this season all the more!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Ebony's First Bath

Saturday was the first day we were able bathe little Ebony - and let's just say that it was a fun experience. I didn't care for her very much at the beginning but she is starting to grow on me bit by bit. She has her moments were she is an amazing little puppy and does everything that she is supposed to, and then she has moments where she frustrates me... like what she did to my blanket this morning.

Some of her latest accomplishments are:

  • Being able to make it all the way of the stairs

  • Jumping off the couch for the first time

  • Allowing us to enjoy an "accident" free day yesterday.

Overall she will be fun to have around the house, I just hope the puppy phase passes quickly.
