Our Christmas at home

We waited to celebrate our family Christmas until we got home.
So the morning after we arrived, the children woke up to find their presents under the tree.
And a sneaking elf peeking under the wrapping paper.
The girls were delighted to open a game - their "something to play together."
And slippers.
"Something to wear."
Their scooters were their favorites.
They were the items "something wanted."
Even Benjamin received a small game.
And basketball.   I thought that was what he'd like the most.
Even Chloe got a toy.
or two.  And in case you were wondering.  We had "The Christmas Talk" with Grace.  She wanted to know if Santa Claus was real and we told her the truth.  I want our children to feel comfortable asking us anything and never doubting that we will always be honest with them and tell them the truth.  And while I don't mind playing pretend with my children I never want them to doubt the true meaning of Christmas - the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
