We've also started creating our Nativity for kids. We made our stable and then last night the kids each picked one thing to put on it. Garen colored and cut out one of the wisemen and Maddie did the star. We talked specifically about these two things and read scriptures about them. Then we discussed ways we can be like the wisemen that brought gold to Jesus and how we can shine brightly like a star. Every couple of days we will pick more people to learn about and add to our Nativity.
The kids also wrote their letters to Santa. Maddie wants an Alligator Golf game, a guitar, and a Wii. She's going to have to be a really good girl to fulfill that list!-
Garen has the Yo Gabba Gabba characters that hook together in a train and he is really bugged that he is missing just one character. It happens to be the pink one named Foofa. To bad they don't sell it in the stores. So that is what he wants and when asked what else he wants he says, "only Foffa and her cart, nothing else!" I guess Santa has to look on Ebay and then he will be done with Garen's Christmas! :)
