The boys are extremely interested in the Christmas Story. Kyle is particularly obsessed in his usual theological way; he wants to understand everything. The most difficult question I've fielded so far is: "What happened before Jesus was born?"
But there is something just so sweet about both their excitement about the Christmas Story. I don't mean Christmas the fun and exciting Santa holiday, I mean the Christmas story itself. They seem to get it, they seem to revel in it, it feels like it has meaning for them.
And that is beautiful.
I found Heather narrating the birth of Jesus to our boys to the other day. The images tell it better than any words.
