our first christmas as a married couple.
things we expected:
this being so much fun. together. in our own little home. getting to be a family.
that the christmas tree decorating would be up to me [sarah] this year because of our disastrous collaborative effort at it last year. our tree was hideous.
that we were going to attempt our own christmas photos using a tripod...with our giant dog...
things we didn't expect:
breaking the hatch on the back of david's car when we got our christmas tree.
the stress of actually having to be adults during christmastime [i.e. buying and wrapping presents more than one day before...which we didn't totally do].
the busyness. good grief where did all the time go?
how hard it is to get a giant dog to cooperate during photos when there are cows and about one million other more interesting things than sitting still and doggy-smiling for a camera.
gaining weight from all the christmas feasting.
just how fun it would be!!!!!! even with the above-listed stressors [along with some unlisted :)] that came into play. we are so so thankful for what 2013 has been for us individually, as a couple, as a business. we are undone and humbled by how the lord has continually had his hand on us. here's to many more years of the expected and the unexpected....because he is in control...and he's good...and we trust him. :) merry merry christmas, everyone!
