I love the Sunday before Christmas. there are so many happy people. beautiful music. extra treats. and wonderful lessons.
I got to teach a Christmas lesson in Gospel Principles- and used this poem by Christina Rossetti as the basis. I love it.
What can I give Him,
· Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb.
If I were a Wise Man
I would do my part,
Yet what can I give Him?Give my heart.
There are so many gifts that I can give that I don't buy at Target :) A gift that can be felt instead of held! It's something I'm working on. Service to others. Forgiveness. kindness. compassion. gratitude.
· today after church we tried to snap some family pictures. with a timer. I got Kent some Christmas socks for work (pediatricians get to wear cool stuff like that) and he snuck them on to wear to church today. I love him.
I really do love my little family. They are pretty great.
except when the little rugrats fight.
Zeb and Ike almost lost Christmas today. yikes. they had a ONE hour timeout in their room. Just the two of them on their beds. no distractions.
It all ended well. and Kent and I got an hour to ourselves :)
Metta is RIDICULOUS with accessories. She's also got something extra on. Sometimes multiple somethings. She wore ONE glove all during church. Somebody asked me if she'd hurt her hand. Nope- she just loves to have ONE glove.
She just stood and stared at him for quite some time. and when he did finally leave- she repeatedly pointed out the back door (that's how he left) and shouted "ho-ho-ho!! ho-ho-ho!!"
Only two more days!!!!
