>Merry Christmas…almost

>Merry Christmas Eve!! On the eve of Jesus’ birthday I must say that I am very excited! I am excited about our family and the chance that we have to start new family traditions. Later today (much later lol), we will be baking cookies and having some family time while our kiddies put on their new pajamas. And Christmas Day, we will be celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus with plenty of love, songs, prayers and thanksgiving, and fajitas! Instead of the traditional menu we are going lighter and away from the norm.
Above all I want my kids to know that Christmas is about Christ and all that He has done and is doing for us. I can’t really say that I remember hearing too much about Jesus and why He was born when I was growing up. I just remember so much focus being placed on the gifts. So, instead of “sticking to what I knew” with my family,my hubby and I are going to add Jesus’ birth and His life and His death into all that we do. So, Christmas for us is about so much more than gifts, trees, and decorations. It’s about God and Him loving us so much that He gave His only Son Jesus to be born for a very specific reason: us. Let’s take the time to celebrate the reason for the season….Jesus Christ.
