Laughter, Children and Santa Clause?

Last night was our first Sunday evening practice for the Christmas Program and all the children needed to be at church by 6:00 p.m. My daughter suggested we help Janie Eisenhart out with her children by offering to pick up the oldest ones at 5:30 and taking them to practice. This would give Janie a few minutes for herself since church doesn't start until 7:30.
Ella, the next to the youngest is free entertainment. She kept us laughing the whole way to church. The funniest though, was when she told us (out of the blue), "I don't believe in all that Santa Clause stuff". Abby, who's very quiet, suddenly pipes up, "Yeah, that's because you're on the Naughty List!" I have laughed about that all day. Needless to say, Ella disagreed.
Children are SO precious. They are so transparent and lovable. I've often said, when we get to heaven and everyone is settled in, you'll find me in the Nursery or the Garden rocking or playing with all the babies. I'm sure there'll be lots - think of all the millions who've been aborted. I'll think I've died and gone to heaven- and I'll be right!

Too cute!! I saw this last night and laughed and wanted to comment, but I was on the phone with someone and couldn't right then.

Loved the hand bell choir picture too! It was fun seeing our family in there too.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I just posted some pics of our Sarah who lost both of her top teeth at the same time and is celebrating her 7th birthday today too! =)

Love y'all,
Heather and baby! =)
