For family home evening, we watched a video about the birth of Christ on my lap top while drinking hot chocolate(Greg and I), chocolate milk(Lydia), and a special kind of milk(Hazel, haha).  Lydia was captivated by the film.  I love that she could tell us so much about what was happening in the video and knew who Mary, Joseph, the 3 Kings, and the Shepherds were.  She even told me how cute she thought baby Jesus was.  Children bring such a special magic to Christmas.  I can’t get over how much more I love Christmas because of these girls.  You think Christmas can’t get any better, and it does.  Thanks to this little family of mine.

Anybody else stressed that Christmas is like a week and a half away?  Good gravy.
