Reason for the Season

So I was sitting at lunch with Peyton today. She was eating peanut butter and jelly with a side of pickles. She asks me for pickles every meal. The funny part is Nate HATES pickles...the smell, the texture, the taste. It makes me laugh when she asks daddy for pickles. =) So on to my real story. I was talking to Peyton about Christmas and explaining to her that is was the birth of Jesus. I love kids brains. She thought for a second...then said in her silly voice, "we eat cake" So I think from this Christmas forward. We are going to have birthday cake on Christmas and sing Happy Birthday to him. Does anyone else have these kind of traditions? I just love that my daughter just help me make a new family tradition.

You have no idea...it actually puts tears in my eyes that a sweet 2 year old could connect things like that into real life.
