Christmas has always been one of my favorite times of the year. I look forward to it now just as much I did when I was a little girl, perhaps even a little bit more. I have enjoyed carrying many of the traditions from my childhood into our family. Josh hasn't been quite as thrilled about my Christmas traditions. I'm pretty sure he could do without sending Christmas cards, cutting down a Christmas tree, getting a new ornament for the tree every year, and perhaps his least favorite, new matching pajamas for Christmas Eve. But these things are important to me and Christmas just doesn't feel complete without them. Luckily, he's been pretty obliging these past two years about traditions, even if he does them a bit unenthusiastically. We're working on it. :)
On Christmas Eve, we gathered at my parent's home for their annual open-house party. There was lots of good food and as always, a birthday cake for Jesus.

I hope everyone's Christmas was wonderful and that as we ring in 2012 tonight, we can all look forward to a happy and healthy new year.
As for the Scurlock's, we are flying back to Grenada in the morning and we are excited to spend a few days together on our island before Josh's last term of basic sciences begins. God has truly blessed us and we will always look back on 2011 with the fondest of memories.
Happy New Year Everyone!
