My Favorite Things…

Doug gave the kids a writing assignment this past week – they were to each write about their two favorite things about Christmas. Here’s what they wrote:

STEVEN: (Just FYI, he asked me for spelling helps, but Steven sat down and typed this all by himself – I just copied and pasted what he typed!)

My favorite thing about Christmas is that we get to worship God. Another thing about Christmas is that we get to open presents and that we get to sit down beside the Christmas tree. Another thing about Christmas is that I get to work on Christmas presents with mommy. Another thing about Christmas is that Christmas is good. Another thing about Christmas is that we get go to Grandma and POPPOP and Nanny and PAPAW.

ANGELA: (She hand wrote this in her own formatting style, so I’m trying to stay as true as I can to her arrangement!)

My 2 favorite things of Christmas

Love we share

  • I like the love exchanged when we exchange gifts at Christmas.
  • I like the love we share when we say, “Thank-you” with gratitude love and excitement. And best of all I like the love for each other and God.

Jesus is born

  • I like the fact that Jesus was born on Christmas Day because without His birth he could not fulfill his purpose on earth.

OLIVIA:

My first favorite thing about Christmas is giving. It gives me great joy to see faces light up when they open presents.

My second favorite thing about Christmas is making. I especially love the sound of our Bernina as I sew presents on it. I also love having the ability to add extra work to the homemade presents I make because that is my way to show love to the person I’m making it for.

 

Thank you for sharing another year with our family!

Merry Christmas from the Hibbards!
