Now I can focus on the "Reason"
The last of the Christmas parties are over. We had all of our Christmas parties during the last week and except for the boys' preschool parties on Friday, we are done! I'm kinda bummed, considering I'm a party person but, I think now I can focus on what Christmas is really about...Jesus. I think parties help us get in the spirit for the holiday season, and I love it, but it gets me out of focus. I have bought gifts for our entire family and not ONE thing have I purchased for someone less fortunate than us. Pitiful. Hudson is definitely old enough to understand that things cost money, that we have a job to get money, and that not everyone has what we have. Brian and I have talked endlessly about the lessons we want to teach our children and now it's time to put those lessons into practice. I'm not quite sure what we're going to do yet. We have a local toy drive, so I could take the boys to pick out some toys and have them go with us to drop them off. Does anyone else have anything they do with their kids this time of year to give to others?
