This past year having Erik at age 8, Claire at age 6, and Megan being 3 has been so much fun. I love how their small hand feels just the right size when I am holding it. I almost wish that time could stop and my kids could stay at this stage for just a bit longer.
Certain things come more easily to children, than to adults. And there is a lot that I can learn from them! I love how easily children laugh, how they live in the moment, how they are generous with their hugs, their constant curiosity, and how they are quick to forgive.
Even though Erik, Claire and Megan are looking forward to the gifts this year, I love that they are beginning to understand that during Christmas we are also celebrating the birth of our Savior.
We hope you have a Merry Christmas!
Some photos that may have made it on the 2010 Christmas card, had we sent one…
