a great reminder from a 10 year old

I just heard Joshua tell his daddy, "Some people think Christmas is just for presents. That's not what Christmas is for."

I'm so thankful that he's beginning to understand how true that statement is, even if he'll still be present-crazed a month from now. I'm thankful that my kids appreciate the opportunity to give as well as receive, the opportunity to spend time together and do special activities, and the opportunity to remember a little baby who changed the world.
