Sarah is really starting to get into the season...she loves seeing the presents and is always asking "Is that present for ME?" Ava is still a little young....but she will catch on fast! Sarah got a tea set last Saturday at Nanny & Pops and we have been having tea parties. She is quite the little hostess! I don't know where she picked up on that....unless at mother's day out. If I am still --- she is handing me a plate & cup! Last night, she got up to go get in bed - hugged me and said "You my best friend"! I just melted! Granted, just an hour earlier I had been trying to think of a way to detach her from my side....but that just made my year! She can be a sneaky little thing, but she is also as sweet as she can be when she wants to be!
I hope all of you have a blessed Christmas and remember in the midst of all the chaos the real "reason of the season" - that sweet baby who came to save the world. The other night on my way home from work, I was listening to the radio and they were playing "Mary Did You Know?" I've heard that song a million times, but suddenly one line really struck me....."and when you kiss your little baby, you've kissed the face of God." That is just awesome to me. Here this little teenage girl is blessed with the gift of giving birth to the Messiah. She got to cuddle him and love on him like any mother would her newborn. Think about all the times you have kissed the sweet soft cheek of a baby - but Mary got to kiss the face of God -- Awesome isn't it? Merry Christmas everyone!
