Happy Birthday Jesus!

What does Christmas mean to you? Gifts, turkey, lights, Santa, or snow?? It was so fun to listen to my boys talking the other day as they discussed Christmas. Of course they were excited about presents... their wishlist had been a mile long, thanks to the Sears wishbook!! But then they switched gears and talked about what we were going to do as a family over Christmas, the main thing they kept saying was that it was a birthday party for Jesus.... that's right!

The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means, "God with us." (Matthew 1:23)

Merry Christmas everyone, and remember the reason we celebrate is because God gave us the best gift.... baby Jesus in the manger 2000 years ago. What a great gift.
