Hey! I remembered something!
Well, actually, Adam remembered something: we meant to celebrate the twelve days of Christmas this year with the kids, giving them a small gift on each day from Christmas Day till Epiphany.
He remembered this when we were out shopping today and the kids got excited about gloves (gloves with snowflakes, gloves with camo print, gloves with flames). At first he said, "Hey, stocking stuffers!" but then he remembered, "weren't we going to skip stuffing the kids' stockings and do the 12 Days of Christmas instead?"
Yes, we were. And now we are, because we remembered in time!
So, I'm blogging just in case any of you out there had similar plans, since these things always go better if you start a few months ahead of time, so you can pick stuff up as you see it. It's a neat way of observing the entire Christmas season and not just the 25th (I hear).
And I promise, we're not being horrible parents by forgoing stuffing their stockings because their grandparents do such a good job of that already. :) Anything Adam and I added was just superfluous compared to the Awesomeness of the Grandfolk.
So now I'm contemplating what else I want to look for: maybe some new Bible story books or prayer cards or such, as well as fun stuff like bottle candy (I know, but they think it's really cool) or pop-guns and such.
Peace of Christ to you,
