Thats right Everybody is counting down the days till' JESUS BIRTHDAY!!!
(yes i know it isn't the actual birthday, but this is when we celebrate it, geesh!
No theological debates please..)
I finished my advent calender just in time..
Jake did have to sneak the little treat in this morning but jaime was super delighted by this way of anticipating and celebrating the coming of "Jesus Birthday!" We are really trying to get him away from the commercial aspects of Christmas, he is three now, its really easy to get wound up in all of the santa and present stuff every where, he was so excited to find out that Christmas is a celebration of Jesus' birth and why we give presents, have a birthday Cake, and a special dinner, its Jesus' birthday party!! I've had to break down allot for him lately, this year he gets it, this year he's noticing everything everywhere, and I really want him to know why Christmas is REALLY a big deal!
In other news we have been keeping pretty busy, a little too busy if you ask me!
