The Reason for the Season
We took the kids to a live nativity a few nights ago. They LOVED it. They were able to feed a donkey. They also loved seeing a live baby Jesus. Since that night, they have each carried around baby dolls. The doll is "baby Jesus." Last night they pulled out a Pooh bear that plays the Happy Birthday song and they had a birthday party for Jesus. We also adopted a foster child this year for Christmas. I wanted the kids to learn that not all kids are as fortunate as them. The kids had a blast shopping for the little girl. She is four years old and she wanted dolls, a jump rope and a cash register. I took pictures of the kids with the presents for the little girl. Now when we go shopping the kids ask if we are buying toys for little boys and girls that need them.
