Jesus is the Greatest Gift

Tonight we will continue our tradition of 
Christmas with the Family.

As Daddy did before us, and Granddaddy did 
before him, we will read the Christmas story.

I was always frustrated with the children when they 
were little and I didn't feel like they were listening.

It's just too hard for little ones to sit still with 
the anticipation of gifts under the tree to open.

I think it's okay for us to share in the joy 
of watching them open gifts. 

This year, we will do it a little different 
in a way that they can understand.
We will tell the Christmas story using 
our Little People's Nativity.

I'll let them hold the characters as if 
acting out each part of the Greatest Story Ever Told!

I will tell that that Jesus is indeed The Greatest Gift. 

Yes, I will tell them that the presents under the tree
represent the presence of Christ.

Because Jesus is the Reason for the Season. 

Merry Christmas to You and Yours!
