I know it’s December. I know that I’m supposed to be festive and excited about giving presents to my children. I know my house is the only one really not decorated for the yearly decorating contest. I still have my fall decorations up. Do you think we could postpone Christmas until January? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Well, one tradition that I will not pass this year…our reading of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” by Barbara Robinson. We read it aloud every year and my children love it. This is one book that I would suggest reading at night right before bed, aloud. It is funny, easy to understand, and quite frankly easy to relate to if you have ever worked in any type of children’s ministry. Plus, it excites children about reading, which I am a true believer.
I will write more when I have a little more time. Until then, I am going to find my fall decorations box. Ooooh…the garage! Now THAT – is a VERY scarry thang!
