Preparing for Christmas

This year, I have tried to do things differently as we prepare for Christmas.  The kids have been able to focus more on helping their siblings and getting ready for the birth of Jesus.  Of course they are fighting some of the time, but they apologize afterwards. For me, that’s what counts.

We prepared a bed for Jesus  which they are filling with strips of paper every time they perform a good deed.  It has been difficult for them, but they are so proud when they overcome their weaknesses.

We have also been decorating the tree with Jesse Tree ornaments which don’t last long.  Cata enjoys ripping them.

I haven’t finished sewing some presents, but we still have Three Kings Day.
