The Meaning of Christmas

This year Dan's mom had our Christmas gift mailed to us before December 1st.  I was completely blown away!  When I asked her how come she was so on top of things she replied... now that her kids are all grown, the magic of Christmas is no longer there.  She tries to get everything out of the way in order to focus on the true spirit of Christmas.

With that being said...My heart was torn on how to approach Christmas.  Do we focus on the birth of our Savior, or the commercial aspect?  During the last two weeks I have witnessed the magic of Christmas through Camden's eyes.  I have enjoyed the best of both worlds!

As I explained to Camden why we drop our change in the Salvation Army's red bucket, I was reminded where the spirit of Christmas meets the magic.

After watching The Polar Express, Camden and Jace found a bell on their pillow before going to bed.  The look on Camden's face was unforgettable!

I'm excited for the magic to be had on Christmas morning, and the spirit that comes along with it.

Lissa, I love reading your blog. This is so sweet and special. I love the idea of putting a bell on their pillows. That is magical.
