Advent and the Neighbors

Today’s the first Sunday of Advent.  It’s a time to prepare our hearts for the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.  All across the world, churches are putting up decorations and lighting the 1st candle of the Advent wreath today.  We’re preparing in our home too.  This week we put up the tree, the stockings, the lights, and now the house is ready for Christmas.  All four of us are getting prepared to celebrate Christ’s birth.  But you know, it’s not too easy to get Christmas pictures made of preschoolers.  In fact, it’s usually pretty crazy at the Neighbors’ house at Christmas time with Anderson & Ellis. They’re always pulling on the ornaments and wrestling during picture time.  Remember the classic hymn, “Silent Night?”  I doubt it was a very silent or calm night with baby Jesus that first night in the manger.  It never is in our house, unless they’re “sleeping in heavenly peace.”  Here’s a little video we put together for you as a Christmas gift to our family, friends, and other folks who love our boys!  Merry Christmas. (by the way YouTube makes the video a little fuzzy)
