Happy Holidays!

First of all, Happy Holidays!! I love and hate this time of year. I love the music, the traditions, baking and crafting with the kids, celebrating the birth of Christ and having the continual feeling of gratitude and service, but I hate what the media has done to it. Christmas is not about the presents but it is centered around Christ.

  I love what Thomas S. Monson had to say, "Our Heavenly Father's plan contains the ultimate expressions of true love. All that we hold dear-even our families, our friends, our joy, our knowledge, our testimonies-would vanish were it not for our Father and His son, the Lord Jesus Christ....the world has witnessed no greater gift, nor has it known more lasting love"
My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ gave me the greatest gift of all. His atoning sacrifice is what gives me Life ...and gives me a reason to celebrate this beautiful Holiday. All my Love to all of you on this very merry Christmas.

What a cute family! I also love what you said about Christmas, it's so true. But it makes me glad that I can teach exactly what they need to know at home. Parents are the biggest influences on a child. ...your kids are gonna be perfect! :)
