A Very Nissen Christmas

Merry Christmas!

This year, Aaron and I travelled to Nebraska at Christmastime to see the Nissens (Aaron's mom's side of the family). We were very lucky to have no snowstorms this year for the drives there and back!

We had a wonderful time visiting family, exchanging gifts, and playing games. Aaron and I didn't really exchange gits this year because we bought a new camera for our upcoming trip to New Zealand, and we said that was our gift to each other this year. But, I couldn't resist getting him a few things. One of which was a Dog DNA Test! I wrapped the results (before opening them!!) and gave them to him on Christmas morning. According to the test results, Ellie is..... a Siberian Husky/Boxer mix. We're not totally sure we trust the test results yet, but we did Google that mix and there's definitely potential that it's accurate :)

I had never seen so many presents in my life:

Aaron and I have so much to be thankful for, I don't even know where to start.

We are thankful to have wonderful family and friends that love us, a place to call home, food to nourish our bodies, careers that we enjoy, pets that make us laugh, and, of course, each other to be partners through it all. We're also very thankful that we've gotten to experience so many cool things in the last year. We've gotten to travel to places that really opened our eyes and solidly placed a desire in our hearts to see more of the world.

We are thankful to love and be loved by a God that made the heavens and the earth, yet knows every hair on our heads... a God that knows what we need when we don't and that works everything for the good of those who love Him... a God that has poured so many blessings over us. Hallelujah!

I am also thankful to have such an adorable cousin (Atticus). We got to meet him on Thanksgiving. Look at that hair!
