This holiday season has been interesting. My oldest dd is now 12 and has just figured out “Santa”. We made 4 shoe boxes for the Christmas Child this year, and dd asked “if Santa goes to every kids in the world, then why do we have to do this?”. We were able to explain that Santa is in every one of us. That made her feel better, seeing as the reason this questioning all came about was from her evenings with your youth group at church.
As for dd9, we still have the fun of imagination and the belief of Santa for at least another year.
We took most of the month for family time, crafts, and other activities. I don’t know about the kids, but I am looking forward to getting back into a routine with the new year !
MERRY CHRISTMAS !
And a blessed new year to everyone !
