Christmas is New

We're seeing Christmas through new young eyes this year. Trees with lights are new. Giving gifts wrapped up in colorful paper is new. Snow (which we are waiting for with much anticipation...and almost experienced a few days ago) will be new. It's fun to watch.

And surprisingly, even baby Jesus is new. Ethiopia is a Christian nation yet our girls have never heard the nativity story. We've overheard some fun conversations as they try to piece it all together.

"Look, Neti. Baby Jesus is naked."

"No he's not. He's wearing pajamas."

Looks like we're going to experience yet another "new": the swaddling clothes talk.

You could really mess with them by dressing up as Santa and then telling them the Christmas story..or not.

I'm been reading your blog and following along for about a month now. I adore reading your journaling and seeing their gorgeous faces with smiles in every picture. We are in the beginning stages of adopting 2 siblings from Ethiopia. So you can see why I love reading your story. I'm so happy for you and your family. Blessings to you all and I look forward to each post you keep.
Thank you,
