The last thing we're doing is putting a star on the baby Jesus chart. It has a cute little poem that we've read each night when we put on the star. It says "Each night before prayers are said, add one star and hop into bed. When all the stars are shining bright, Christmas will come with the morning light!" I know the kids will love watching the sky over Jesus fill with stars!
This is one of the things I looked forward to the most about having my own children, I didn't know it would be so challenging to overcome what the world has made Christmas to be and teach my little ones that it's not about them or the presents. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!!!!!
