Tonight we anticipate the celebration of the birthday of our King. My heart is full of joy. I am overwhelmed with the truth that without this day, life and hope would be impossible.
Our babies opened their Christmas Eve pajamas, we read the story of the three wise men from the Jesus Storybook Bible, and sang Away in a Manger and Hark the Herald Angels Sing (2 of Mekonen's favorite songs this year). Mekonen has been saying "Tomorrow is Jesus' birthday!!!"
The best of about 15 pictures. Haha. Meko's facial expression is too funny and Evie is chewing on baby Jesus.
E&M have loved playing with the Little People Nativity Set and Mekonen loves to talk about Mary, the angel, and the Shepherds.
Interview with Mekonen about Jesus' Birthday. (He answered them exactly as written, some in complete sentences, which is hilarious).
"Where was Jesus born?" In a manger in Bethlehem.
"What was Jesus' mother's name?" Mary by name (a phrase one of our nativity books says when talking about Mary and Joseph)
"What was Jesus' father's name?" Joseph by name
"What did the angel tell the Shepherds?" The angel told the Shepherds that Jesus was born!
"What did the angel tell Mary?" The angel told Mary to name the baby Jesus.
"Who is Jesus?" Jesus is God.
"Why did Jesus come to earth as a baby on Christmas?" to teach us about God
Our little Jesse Tree
She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.
