I can't believe it's December! Even though it's only 8 days into it, I am counting down the days until Christmas break! 6 school days to be exact. Our district is lucky to take the week both before and after off. It will be a much needed and deserved opportunity to get some family time and reflect upon the true meaning of the season.
As my kids are getting older, I am starting to also realize how important it is for them to be more aware of the Christ part and not the Santa part. I think since before Thanksgiving the "Santa Threats" have been going on. Why don't we have "Jesus Threats?" In the end he is who really counts!
One Sunday, we were watching something on KSL and they were talking about how important there family traditions were on Christmas eve at centering that evening on Christ. So this is my goal this year. To spend the 24th all on Christ. We may even have a Bethlehem dinner like they suggested. I'll let you know how that goes.
Here are a few pictures to show you how we have been preparing for the season! Enjoy and Wishing you and Yours a Very Merry Christmas!!
