Don’t let the sweet faces fool ya…

We’ve got a case of the “gimmie – gimmie – gimmie’s” going on here at our house…

My mission, should I choose to accept it {and I do}…

look for some new traditions that will bring back the “thank you’s” that seem to have been lost in all the busyness that comes with Christmas.

I would love to hear any traditions that you have done as children or that you have done with your children that have helped to keep the true “Reason for the Season”…

Do you have a birthday party for Jesus?

Do you read the Christmas story on Christmas morning before opening gifts?

What has helped you continue to teach your children that it is all about Jesus?

Please do share…

  1. We have a birthday cake for Jesus! It helps the girls remember why we are celebrating Christmas. Plus it’s cake! Merry Christmas!

  2. WHEN KIDS SMALL USE TO HAVE B-DAY PARTY WITH GRANDPARENTS… OH HOW I MISS THEM NOW….
    NOW BEFORE WE OPEN PRESENTS ( OUR PORTION OF CHRISTMAS) WE READ THE STORY WITH THE CONNECTION TO EASTER. tHE 2 TREES, AND INSTEAD OF AN ANGEL ON TOP THE TREE WE TAKE TURNS WITH THE GKIDS TO PLACE A CROWN OF THORNS ON TOP OF THE TREE..(IT WAS A CHRISTMAS DECORATION I BOUGHT YEARS AGO) DIFFERENT BUT EFFECTIVE FOR OUR STAGE OF THE GAME

  3. We read the Christmas story from Luke 2:1-20. I chose that because it tells about the shepherds and the angles and how exciting it was. When the boys were young it was always good to include some excitement to keep their attention! Even now it’s good to read it Christmas morning. It helps us focus on the real reason we exchange gifts in the first place. I also really liked the take Jeff had in a recent sermon about the shepherds being the first evangelists. I had always know they were seen as almost derelects and found it wonderful that they were the first to meet our King. “The last shall be first.” God is so awesome! Thanks for asking!
