{Full of Joy: Holiday Happenings}

This Christmas season has been busier than ever as I have been immersing myself in all the fun activities that happen during the month of December. Almost a whole month has flown by, and I haven’t even managed to get a post up. I guess that means I am having fun!

It feels like Thanksgiving was ages ago because I have packed so much into this Christmas season. This is going to be the most photo loaded post to date on IFG, but these images sum up my December nicely. Full of joy, loving life and blessed to have amazing friends! I feel like a lucky, lucky girl.

There are so many reasons to be merry this Christmas season. I am so grateful for all of the life experiences in 2013 that make this season so incredibly joyful. And at the heart of it all, I am so grateful that a little baby boy was born so many years ago in a stable in the most non-glorious way possible. He came to save the world, and that He did. I am beyond grateful for the hope and joy I have because of that beautiful night where the shepherds came and the angels sang. Glory to God in the highest, and peace on Earth to those whom His favor rests. Amen!

I am so thrilled to celebrate with my family in just a day. Joy to the world, the Lord has truly come!

Enjoy the photos from a busy month!
