"Everywhere in nature we are taught the lessons of patience and waiting. We want things a long time before we get them, and the fact that we wanted them a long time makes them all the more precious when they come." Joseph F. Smith
We all went and decided on a tree pretty quick at the hardware store. Daddy got the tree in our van and the girls thought it was fun to have the tree so close. Elayna is afraid of the tree. Lilia wants to put lights up and decorate. I love sitting and looking at the tree during the Christmas season.
I got the nice breakable nativity out and set it up. I explained who everyone was and told the story of Jesus birth. The girls each have a kid friendly nativity for them to play with. They are having fun moving the pieces around and playing.
