Dearest Christian–

In two weeks we will be traveling to spend Christmas with your grandparents.  I’m soexcited for you, my son!  I hope you will grow up knowing the true meaning of Christmas and valuing it, too.  I hope Daddy and I can teach you that.  Remember that Christmas is a celebration of our Savior’s birth — the other stuff is just fluff.  Don’t let the other stuff cloud the story of our God coming to earth to die for us.  That’s too important to cover up!

I love you, my little one!  I hope you will sleep well tonight.  That good habit hasn’t developed for you yet.

May the peace of God be with you, my son!  🙂

All my love, Mommy
