Brrr....well that warm weather was definitely short-lived! I'm still trying to thaw my toes from walking into work at a measly 10 degrees!!! Good Lord, what's up with this weather!?!
Tomorrow Jason and I head off to California to spend the holidays with Jason's family. I'm so excited for the break from work and enjoy some total relaxation. To be able to sleep in every morning with my man is a little piece of heaven :-) AND this also means, that for our house - CHRISTMAS COMES TODAY!!!!!!
Jason woke up to me this morning bouncing up and down on the bed - "IT'S CHRISTMAS! IT'S CHRISTMAS!". To which he responded, "How old are you?" BAH-HUMBUG! "I'm 30 and I want to open presents!!!!!" But I have to wait till after he gets home from work tonight before the festivities can begin. I'm pumped.
Ok and speaking of Christmas. SO yesterday Jason and I were teaching our little 3rd & 4th graders at Sunday School and I asked the class whether they had finished their Christmas shopping yet. And one little girls asks me how many gifts are under our tree? Then our class helper, who happens to be one of the dad's of a boy in our class pipes up and says, "Well Santa hasn't brought our gifts yet". I'm sorry WHAT? Excuse me, but isn't 3rd & 4th graders a bit old to still believe in Santa!!?? Dude, do you want your son to be ridiculed at school for still believing in Santa at that age? At this age, most kids are past the point of just receiving gifts and are learning what it means to GIVE and save their allowance to buy gifts for others. As they say in the south, I wanted to have a little 'Come To Jesus' with that father right then and there.
Well what do you guys think? I know when I was little I got gifts from Santa, but I was probably 5 or 6 when I was past that make-believe stage. So what do you think is an appropriate age for kids to learn the truth?
