We had a low key Christmas.  Cora Jane of course didn't know what was going on so it was time for us to spend with family.  I want to ensure that Cora Jane knows the true meaning of Christmas which is the birth of Jesus.  I know she probably didn't understand what I was saying, but I told her about the meaning of Christmas.  I also read her the story from her children's bible.  I'm also starting with the three gifts tradition.  She got three gifts, plus her stocking.  I want her to know that it is better to give than to receive.

Our first Christmas.  (Daddy was at work.)

After church Christmas morning she was so tired.  She took a nap while we ate lunch.

  1. I started the 3 gifts tradition with Eric's first Christmas. I continue it 9 years later with all my children. They understand why they get 3 gifts and don't miss having more. It's a fantastic tradition and I commend your choice. In a society where people overfill buggies for Christmas and Easter it's nice to know other people feel the same way I do. :)
