Update On Christmas Post

Well we worked on the previously mentioned homework assignment (10 things I want for Christmas), and Caleb came up with 10 things he would like to give to others for Christmas. He quickly started naming wonderful ideas...blankets for the people who are cold, food for the hungry, Bibles, Transformer toys for boys, socks and shoes,...I'm thinking how sweet, he is so thoughtful, etc... Then he added guns to the list....saying then the "poor people" could go to the woods and kill animals for food. Very good idea Caleb...could solve a lot of hunger issues in our thoughtful:)

And another update...Beau and kids wanted to add to the list of favorite Christmas traditions:
1. Having a "Happy Birthday Jesus" cake for breakfast on Christmas morning...they love cake for breakfast!
2. Reading favorite books (currently---The Advent Book by Jack Stockman and Kathy Stockman (so beautiful...a must!), Cajun Night Before Christmas by Trosclair (they like my very bad cajun accent), The Crippled Lamb by Max Lucado, and Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Love this! So sweet and I love your traditions! Tee asked once if we could plant watermelon patches so the homeless people could just walk through and pick a watermelon. "Why watermelon, Tee?" "Because they're so big they could really fill them up."

I like the idea about the cake. I want to leave a present for Jesus under the tree, but can't think what to put in it. Any ideas, Nat?

I LOVE Christmas traditions. We always make coffee cake for Christmas morning and it is a birthday cake for Jesus.

Look forward to Sunday night.
