OK... I just wanted to start out the blog with that... I will continue on... ;)
Grant and I want the boys to know that Christmas isn't just about Santa and presents... It's about a birthday. It's about the most important birthday's ever! JESUS! I love that the boys know who Jesus and God are and how important they are in our lives. Jake and Asher both know that God created us, His son for us, and that needs to be celebrated. DAILY. I wanted to do something to really celebrate, and for a little tradition to be started in His honor. Other than going to church, plays, and talking about the reasons we celebrate Christmas. This year we will start the tradition of making a dessert, and then sing happy birthday to Jesus! They are already excited to make something, and to sing to Jesus. Love it.
Last week the boys both had their Christmas programs. However, they weren't in the same program. Asher's program was at 5pm, and Jake's was at 7pm. It was a little hectic, but it was awesome. The school has grown so much that they had to separate the performances.
Both boys where SO excited to wear their blazers, and come to school to sing and see their friends. It's such a special school, with so many special teachers. I am thrilled that we found a school as amazing as this!
Here are some pictures from the night:
