Christmastime



This past Saturday, I spent the day in Disneyland. I know, shock of all shocks. We had a great time even though it was crowded as all get out. For more pictures, click here.

In other news, Christmastime is turning out to be pretty awesome. So many little miracles have happened in my life recently. Perhaps our first Christmas miracle was this little incident:


Yes. Our Bethlehem village had a bit of an accident. So why it this a miracle? Well, for one, we were able to retrieve and fix every piece. Well, almost. One girl has a chunk missing from her wrist, but hey, beggars can't be choosers. (Haha, she's actually a beggar too. Ha.) Okay, but anyways, I had fun performing surgery all night and listening to my mom make sacrilegious comments.
On a more serious note, I got my student teaching placement! I'm headed to Canyon Rim Elementary, home to the Cougars. I'll be in a 2nd grade classroom and I'm very, very excited! I start January 5th. Wish me luck!
It's become clear to me that miracles happen every day. Life gets crazy and things can seem pretty bleak at times. But I don't believe the Lord ever closes one door without opening another. I'm pretty excited about everything that has been happening in my life and about all the daily miracles I experience.
As Christmas draws closer, let's remember all the miracles we experience. And most importantly, let's remember why we celebrate this day. Because of a small, humble miracle. The birth of a baby boy in a manger in Bethlehem.
I love you all. Merry Christmas!

Ok, that was kind of hilarious! I am sitting here laughing to myself as I can hear your voice narrating while I read. Poor little village people! That is so exciting you start your student teaching. Hope all is well! You are an amazing girl! Merry Christmas.
