Christmas w kids

Its really good to experience Christmas w kids & I’m discovering this moreso w each year.  I love their questions:

  • why do people celebrate Christmas if they don’t believe in Jesus? – David
  • who has the last birthday of the year in our family? Answer by Isabell:  Jesus
  • are we having birthday cake for Jesus’ birthday?  – Benji
  • what made the men from the East who came to give Jesus presents, “wisemen”? – David
  • what were the shepherds doing in the field at night when the angels came to visit?  Were they staying up late when this happened? – David
  • what are we doing for families that don’t have enough money for Christmas? – Isabell

They’ve asked me LOTS more, but these are just a few off the top of my head.  Kids can really distill things to the most important points – cutting through the fluff.  I love it! 

bellie_kid_ethiopiaIsabell is really excited because she’s in our church’s kid’s Christmas program this weekend as an actor, singer, dancer & cheerleader.  She’s SO EXCITED!!!!!  Benji has his Jr Kindergarten program on Wed – he’s Gabriel.  I think he makes a very fitting Gabriel – announcing w great joy, enthusiasm & volume the birth of Jesus.  I think David kind of prefers the cerebral approach to the season.  Whatever the case, they’re all fabulously unique & I am more than in awe of them & their observations.
