We decorated our tree before we left for Maryland so when we got back we'd be all set for Christmas. It was so much fun with Max because he is SO excited for Christmas. It's all he talks about. Whenever he plays with friends he tells that that we're going to have Christmas at our house (like it's a special Ellis Family event).
Well, the other day I was trying to take advantage of a teaching moment and I told him that Christmas is Jesus' birthday. Instead of the interested reaction I had hoped for, he burst into tears because he thought I was saying that only baby Jesus was going to be getting presents for Christmas. Nice. I have a feeling getting across the true meaning of Christmas might be a little tougher than I originally thought.
