He Still Doesn't Know...


Nope.  As of last night, Aaron hadn't figured out the Christmas thing but he went to bed excited anyway.

He knows Christmas is Jesus' birthday.

He knows that it involves family.

He knows that presents figure into it somehow.

But he has no idea that HE IS GOING TO GET PRESENTS!

Despite not knowing, he put himself to sleep singing his version of Jingle Bells.... (This version entails singing "Jingle Bells" over and over and over again with tuneless joyful abandon).... 

He went to bed knowing that something was going to happen zumorro but not sure WHAT that something entails.

After the littlest was safely tucked in bed (but not sleeping), his brothers, his granddad, his Mama and his Papa spent the evening arranging presents around the tree and setting up a train track while listening to him sing in the background.

Chuckling in delight as we considered what zumorro will bring for our funny little boy.

Oh What Fun.

Oh What Fun!!


  1. So beautiful! Again the spirit of Christmas is intertwined with the spirit of Adoption: No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has gone ahead to prepare for those who love him. Merry Christmas to your whole family!!!

  2. Isn't it just fun to be a parent and anticipate the joy on your children's faces when they awaken to all the festivities of the day?! Do you think we or the kids have the most fun?

  3. So thankful Aaron has a wonderful family to spend and enjoy Christmas with. God is so good! I was thinking this morning how many precious children had came home to loving families thanks to organizations like Reece's Rainbow (one in my own home town). I also thought how many more there are still waiting. Praying that many more will share the same happy ending that Aaron has at this time next year. Merry Christmas to you all!

  4. I bet he was so surprised!! I can't wait to read about his reaction. :D

    I hope that someday Samaritan's Purse will be able to take Operation Christmas Child boxes into some of the special needs orphanages, such as Aaron's old one. It's sad to think that some kids have never received a gift or known what Christmas is about.


Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
