christmas time is here :)

i LOVE christmas time. i love the music, the decorations, the family get togethers..i love it all. this year i am really trying to focus on the reason for this season. i am trying to take time to really teach my kids what christmas is all about. i know i personally get sooo caught up in the busyness of christmas that i forget jesus. i forget that it is all about him. sure everything else is lots of fun, but this time of year is about celebrating that jesus was born on this earth to save us!! what an amazing gift!

we have had a lot of fun spending time as a family reading books and singing christmas songs around the christmas tree at night reflecting on christ's birth.

we also have had a lot of fun decorating the house :)
