The Wonder of Christmas
I love watching little ones at Christmas. There is just so much to explore.
Nothing is off limits here. It's all just stuff, right? Who needs a sensory box when you can just touch the real things. The five year old kept sneaking up to the tree and I would hear him quietly say "touch, touch" as he went around poking each ornament. You should have seen the surprise on his face when I said, "It's okay. You can touch it. Just be gentle." He was thrilled.
We also have quite a stack of Christmas books they've been enjoying. A lot of them are ours, but we also checked out a big stack from the library. You can't have too many Christmas books ;)
I just love seeing my boys enjoying playing together. It's been such a blessing to be able to stop working, and just focus on them these days. I am so blessed!
I'm a born again believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I am a very happily married wife and a homeschooling mom of five of the greatest kids in the world. We live in a little mountain town in Wyoming, which we love. I enjoy reading and studying God's Word, homeschooling my treasures from Heaven, sewing and doing all sorts of crafts.

"The Bible calls debt a curse and children a blessing; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture." Doug Phillips

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
