The cutest little shepherd boy!!

Max was in his first CHRISTmas play at school! It was the sweetest thing ever!!! His preschool class sang and everyone had a speaking part (in groups). Max has been practicing, and practicing, and he knew his lines by heart! Of course I cried, and he was as proud as can be! Here's his part...complete with hand motions!

Clop, clop, clop went the donkey's feet
Clop, clop, clop down the stoney street
Nod, nod, nod went Mary's head
She was tired and needed a bed
Knock, knock, knock went Joseph at the door
Do you have room for even one more?
No, no, no the innkeeper said
I don't even have one more bed
Wait, wait, wait the innkeeper said
You can use my stable instead
Shh, shh, shh what's that I hear?
The cry of baby Jesus, oh so dear!

Love, love, love amidst the gifts and parties and holiday fun, that even at school Max is learning exactly why it is we celebrate!!!

The most wonderful time of the year!!!

We are having sooo much fun making CHRISTmas memories around here! Tonight's agenda.....baking and frosting cookies! Max was the perfect little helper, and had a blast decorating each cookie. I remember doing the same thing as a little girl, and its so cool getting to be Mom and watching my little boy love it to! Now we're all camped out on the couch, enjoying our cookies, watching Frosty The Snowman! The perfect night!

Yay for CHRISTmas!

Our tree is up and we are LOVING it! Max's favorite thing to do when we get home from school or from running errands is to ask "can I plug in the lights now?!?!" It makes him feel so grown up! Its fun to experience the CHRISTmas season through Max's eyes this year. He's really understanding everything so much more this year. We've talked about how much more important it is to give rather than to get....and how Jesus is the best gift ever given. Our sweet little smarty pants reminds us every day "God loves us sooooo much that's why we have Christmas!" We've got lots of other fun things planned for this month. Can't wait to experience them all with him!
