Merry Christmas

To kids, Christmas is usually all about the gifts. This year I was quite impressed with our boys. They woke up to a pile of presents under the tree but left them all alone. We headed over to my parents house for a late breakfast and even when we got home in the early afternoon they weren’t begging to tear into the gifts.

After the traditional reading of the Christmas story it was finally time to open some boxes. Andy helped find the gifts, and after both boys had opened two packages he declared himself done. When I asked about the pile of packages still under the tree he seemed a little confused at first but then responded with, “they must be for you and mom”

Well, all the packages did get opened and the boys both loved everything they received. I’m sure over the next few days all of them we be taken out and properly played with.

I pray that we can continue to raise our children to be thankful for what they have been given and to remember that Christmas is not about what you get but rather about celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
