My kids & Christmas

During my long vacation from blogging, one of my tasks is gift wrapping. When I put up our 6 year old Christmas Tree the kids are very excited and waiting for the boxes underneath. After two weeks of waiting, they saw those boxes that they are asking for. For kids, it will never be complete without those special gifts. Christmas is giving. That is one message I always wanted to impart with my kids so every Christmas they are assigned to distribute the gifts.

Being kids too, they tend to expect to receive as well. My kids are still young so every Christmas hubby and I see to it that we always have gifts for them. We always tell them to appreciate the gifts that they will receive, never look at the size or the cost. Give value and importance on the thought that they are being remembered. We also told them that a gift doesn’t have to be tangible like a gift of having a complete and happy family.

The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis

You're right about teaching kids to appreciate gifts regardless of size or cost. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this.

@ Tetcha:

You are welcome! Kids are prone to some sort of bad influences outside the house so we really need to guide and take time to talk things with them. Thanks for dropping by!♥

HI Crissy! I have been away for awhile too - been ill and busy. I am glad you are back too and I think the lessons you give your children while they are still young are very valuable.
