we have already enjoyed everything i want on Christmas. yesterday i asked mckaela how the christmas story started–who did it start with– when we were playing with one of her nativity sets. i handed her mary and she began the story. she chose the angel and told me how the angel came to mary to share news of great joy that she would have a baby who would be the king forever. i loved her four year old retelling of the story, piece by piece grabbing each toy figurine for its part. we happened to have lost the wise men’s gifts which came with the set so she brought a horse (one of our many if you know mckaela) from the toy room to use as the wise men’s gift.
it was such a pleasant focusing opportunity for me. this morning i woke to take care of mike first and she eventually woke and wandered the house to find me. we ate breakfast together without the hurry of an agenda. mike’s mom came downstairs next and asked mckaela if santa had come. mckaela had no idea he had visited last night because she had never bothered to check. so she said he had not come and she didn’t know when he was coming. no hurry. no rush. just enjoying the moment of family together. presents from last night and today’s bounty never even crossed her mind. so christmas has come without all the bustle. and it is sweet. eli has finally “got out bed” as he is telling me. so we will go downstairs and see what santa has indeed left. i look forward to one more thing. sitting in mike’s room under the tree when they attack the box that santa left that holds one of our old baby dolls, wrapped in a blanket…a reminder of the supreme gift. a reminder to unwrap the gift every day, the savior, God with us.
