This year we are doing good deeds and filling a manger with straw under the tree while eagerly awaiting the arrival of baby Jesus on Christmas Day. (each good deed from the kids=1 piece of straw)
My son is enjoying this project a great deal this year. He is so excited about baby Jesus arriving. He is trying his hardest to fill the basket with good deed straws to make sure that baby Jesus is very comfortable when he arrives.
Every night before we pray, he goes through his list of what he thinks are his good deeds for the day. It's so wonderful. I'm so proud of him. He is such a wonderful little boy. Last night before bed he said the 10 commandments in order. He wanted to know if he could put in a piece of straw for every commandment. :)
May Jesus' manger be full from good deeds this year at the Boulds' household & yours!
