Well...the tree is up at our house & the spankings have begun as this lil wild man feels he is supposed to THROW all the balls and ornaments. He's never touched the tree in years before....I guess our luck has run out!:)
On a serious note, I have tried to continually explain to Cole that Christmas is Jesus' birthday. Its fun to talk about Santa & build up that excitement...but in a world that hardly talks about the real meaning of Christmas...I feel it is so important for him to know why we really celebrate & this year he is starting to understand. If he ever thinks Christmas is only about Santa & presents...then I have failed him. I want him to know about Jesus & giving first. I pray I can do this successfully with God's help and I encourage you to try the same thing.
