At last we are getting ready for Christmas!

Between our trip and Mike and I both having Bronchitis (his so bad he had to spend the night in the hospital last week); we really had not had the chance to finish with getting Christmas preparations done. Since we both finished work Friday for the next two weeks we have had some breathing room. We finished decorating the tree over the weekend, bought a little something for Jamies teachers, bought ourselves our Christmas gift (a HD TV! - more about that later!)...AND I did all of the Christmas cards and mailed them out! WHew!

All weekend Jamie was asking to see the Baby Jesus...and you know there just isn't a Christmas special that tells that story accurately. TV & Movie producers take note! Anyway this morning we put up our Nativity set together and Jamie has her baby Jesus, truly the reason for the season. Maybe we will also stop at the Library and look for a good book depicting the Christmas story. Or go buy one. Today we will wrap the teachers presents and get some other decorations out. Tomorrow Jamie will go to school for the morning at least so we can take the Teachers their gifts and also wrap Jamies stuff up. Also today we are going to Comcast to get our new tv hooked up so we can watch some HD!! I am truly a nester, I can't remember the last movie I went to...oh wait it was Enchanted either last Christmas or the one before...Anyway I much prefer being in the comfort of my own home rather than going to a movie...

I'm glad to hear Jamie is asking about Jesus (maybe you'll consider letting us take her to Church with us ? ? ?).

Anyway, the Christmas story about His birth is in the Bible (the Gospel of Luke is probably the best).

Maybe we will have a Birthday Cake for Baby Jesus so the kids can sing Happy Birthday to Him.

Allie's been singing Happy Birthday to Jesus all week! I think it's the cutest thing!

People always look at us funny when I say we don't let the kids believe in Santa, but I always just say, "It's not about Santa. He's not the reason for the season."

Merry Christmas!
