Church Debut

(No, his hair isn't that long and shaggy is just the shadow!)

Ez made his church debut today. All went well...not even one Young Woman touching his face or hands! We made it through a successful bottle feed at church with out any vomiting and both Blaine and I were able to tend to our responsibilities with our callings. After 2 1/2 months of not being at church all together, it was nice. And sacrament meeting was fabulous with wonderful Christmas music. I finally felt the true Christmas spirit today as I listened to a performance of "Oh, Holy Night". I felt the spirit of Christ so strongly and I was overcome with emotion and gratitude for His life and His teachings, and ultimately, His suffering and atonement so that we can one day return to His presence. As my thoughts have been so focused on material gifts recently, it was nice to ponder on the spiritual gifts that Christ has given, and continues to give. Anyway, thought I'd share.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas filled with family, peace, happiness, love, and health!

So glad you got to go to church finally. I guess I didn't realize that you had kept him home so long but it makes sense. We REALLY wish we could have come out and met that cute little guy. Those darn holiday travelers that pay for tickets and take my seats!
