Because of the snow that we got last night and high winds, there was no church this morning. So, instead, we had family worship which involed reading the Christmas story and then singing a few Christmas carols that we would have sang in church this morning. (Jason was suppose to lead worship today so we had a little inside knowledge of what songs were going to be sung.)
After family worship, I got the idea of letting the kids open up a gift. We had purchased games for the kids so that's what they got to open. Our reasoning...we were snowed in and needed something new in the house for the kids to play with and be excited about.
Ethan got Hungry, Hungry Hippos...he was so excited and played with it for hours, mostly alone.
