Christmas Pictures 2010
We had these pictures taken at Portrait Innovations in Spartanburg that just opened. It is very challenging to get an energetic four year old and two year old to look at the camera at the same time!
Christmas is definitely my favorite time of year. This year I am very thankful for Jackson's wonderful mission friend teacher and Sunday School teachers. Christmas can be very confusing time for a Preschooler. I think at the beginning of the season Jackson actually thought that Christmas was Santa's birthday, not Jesus' birthday. Santa gets the kids one or two gifts, but we give them the big gift (trying not to make a big deal out of Santa). We definitely do not tell that Santa is watching him. Lastly, we try not to get them more than three presents each (representing the three Wiseman gifts)
Do you have any other suggestions on keeping Jesus the focus of Christmas for a Preschooler?
(I plan on getting the Little People's Manger Scene for next year).
