I realize that the title to this post is strange for today but this is what we have been discussing in our house for the last couple of days. The talk of Christmas and what it really means has been on Mili's mind for a while. We try to entertain all of her many questions but it sometimes becomes difficult to explain. This is how the conversation went in the car the other day.
Mili: We have a birthday party for Jesus, Mommy?
Mommy: Yes baby we can have a party for Jesus at Christmas time.
Mili: We buy presents for Jesus, Mommy?
Mommy: Yes baby we will buy presents for kids who don't have any presents at Christmas and that makes Jesus happy.
Mili: We have a cake for Jesus?
Mili: We have candles for Jesus?
Mili: We sing Happy Birthday to Jesus?
Mili: Can I see Jesus?
Mommy: No, we can't see Jesus but he is in heaven and loves us very much!!!
Mili: Yeah, Mommy.
I wish everyone could "GET IT" like children do. They trust that Jesus loves them and who he says he is. Adults have issues with that, we complicate things that don't need to be complicated.
We had the same conversation all over again today. This morning when we arrived at church, Mili said she thought Jesus liked her boots. Hope you enjoy the pictures of the girls today.
I am not quite awake and you have to take pictures of me now???
If you HAVE to take pictures then please get my good side, Mommy!
Let me give you something to take a picture of.
Sadie did not like her hat but it was crisp and cool this morning so she had no choice.
