The True Meaning of Christmas
Oh, how I love this time of year. It is fun to get together with family and friends and enjoy the yearly traditions. It is also so fun to see how each child in your family reacts to the events of the holidays. We had a family night where we talked about the true meaning of Christmas and the story of Christ's birth. The next day I was driving through our community to pick up Alexa at a friends house. It is about 5pm and there were alot of people out walking/exercising. My three year old Cannon rolls down the window as I am coming to a turn and yells at the top of his lungs (to the couple walking) "Happy Birthday Jesus Christ". And then continues to scream it at least four or five more times. It was one of those moments where I didn't know whether to go hide or be completely proud that he wanted everyone to know the true meaning of Christmas! By the way, am I the only one who can't get a picture with everybody looking at the same time?
