Merry Christmas Eve…

We’re sad to send Jeremy back to the North Pole! He has brought so much fun to our house this year. Here are his last couple of days of mischief:

Day 16:

Jeremy won playing Dr. Mario on the Wii!

Day 17:

Daniel sent a note to Santa with Jeremy and Santa sent a reply

Day 18:

Jeremy toilet papered the bathroom

Day 19:

Jeremy said goodbye with post-its. He also left a little note saying that he had fun and would see them next year.

Jeremy elf and Santa Claus are such a fun part of Christmas when you have little kids, but that’s not what it’s all about. I think my second grade son put it nicely in his Christmas Essay at school. {Translated below, if you need it}

{These are the things that Christmas means to me:
Jesus, giving is more important than receiving and my family.
Jesus’ birthday is on Christmas.  It all started back way back when Mary came into the inn where Elizabeth was.  A baby boy jumped for joy and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
 Mary and Elizabeth traveled on a donkey to Nazareth to find Joseph.  Then again Mary traveled on another donkey.  They got to Bethlehem.  Instead of an inn they ended up in a stable.  Baby Jesus was born in a manger.  A star appeared in the sky.  Shepherds shouted praises to the Lord.  Three wise men brought gold and other things to the baby king.
My father told me giving is more important than receiving.  Because if you give the more you believe in God and Jesus.
I have 4 people in my family and 1 dog.  On the 18 of December my whole family is coming over!
Now these are the things Christmas means to me: Jesus, Giving and my family.}

May you experience Jesus, giving, and family this Christmas.

Merry Christmas!!!

  1. That little essay made me all teary eyed. What a kind heart he has! And it’s amazing how much of the Christmas Story he’s grasped – so smart! Merry Christmas!
