Merry Christmas!!! (A bit late, I know.) I truly had every intention of sending Christmas Cards this year! If you haven’t received yours yet… well, it is because they were never written or sent. Christmas day has already slipped by and the cards still sit in an orderly stack in the creative corner of my brain. So, in a moment of brilliance, I decided to embrace our ever increasing technological world, and make this blog post a Christmas card from us to you.


We hope that you had a very wonderful Christmas

 And that the coming year is full of Peace and Joy.


With love,

Travis and Lauren


My new favorite Christmas song.  In order for you to listen to it I just posted a youtube video of the song.  Sadly the one I found with the best sound quality (and so chose to post here) has a couple spots where the text misquoted the song.  So see below for the accurate lyrics.

All the streets are filled with laughter and light
And the music of the season
And the merchants’ windows are all bright
With the faces of the children
And the families hurrying to their homes
As the sky darkens and freezes
Will be gathering around the hearths and tales
Giving thanks for God’s graces
And the birth of the rebel Jesus

Will they call him by the “Prince Of Peace”
And they call him by “The Saviour”
And they pray to him upon the sea
And in every bold endeavor
As they fill his churches with their pride and gold
And their faith in him increases
But they’ve turned the nature that I worship in
From a temple to a robber’s den
In the words of the rebel Jesus

We guard our world with locks and guns
And we guard our fine possessions
And once a year when Christmas comes
We give to our relations
And perhaps we give a little to the poor
If the generosity should seize us
But if any one of us should interfere
In the business of why there are poor
They get the same as the rebel Jesus

But pardon me if I have seemed
To take the tone of judgement
For I’ve no wish to come between
This day and your enjoyment
In this life of hardship and of earthly toil
We have need for anything that frees us
So I bid you pleasure and I bid you cheer
From a heathen and a pagan
On the side of the rebel Jesus
