Dear God...

"Thank you for your gift of Baby Jesus. Thank you for loving me so much that you would send your only Son to save me. Please help me to always remember that Christmas is about so much more than wrapping paper and presents. In Jesus name, Amen."

Sophia recited the above blessing/prayer for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas dinner with our family. We have been practicing all week. She still needed help from Mommy, but I am so proud of my little angel.

Christmas Meltdowns were present, however, I really think that Sophia was able to grasp the "reason for the season."

God Bless and Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

Family traditions

Below are some pictures of Sophia partaking in a beautiful Stancil family tradition of decorating "Nan's" tree, who is David's Mom, her grandmother. The tree looked beautiful as Sophia and my beautiful neices adorned the tree with MANY ornaments that have been collected over the years. It was one of those moments that made your heart warm... just what the holidays are all about. Merry Christmas Everyone!
