Our family had a wonderful Christmas, and I hope you did, too! The last several days we have been taking it easy and spending time playing together. It is so nice to have a break from our regular routine. The kids have been staying up very late at night watching Christmas movies and munching on goodies. Late nights mean they have much-later-than-usual waking times, but that’s what vacation days are for. 😉
Lots of smiles, lots of laughter, lots of time together. Deep conversations, too, with a certain seven year old who was so excited to celebrate Jesus’ birthday, but can’t quite understand that He isn’t a certain number of years old. I love to see the wheels turning in her head. I also love hearing my children wish Him a happy birthday and tell their Heavenly Father how glad they are that He sent His Son to die for their sins. That made my Christmas complete.
