Christmas in 5 minutes

I didn't want to just jump over Christmas.  This Christmas season was so fun for Jones. He was excited for Santa, he loved the story of baby Jesus's birthday, he enjoyed the crafting and tree, and decor.  He wished Christmas kept going on forever.  Thea was also equally into it although I think because she was watching Jones.  Even a month later he asks me questions about Christmas, sings jingle bells, and he asked if it was Jesus's birthday at church this week.  

It's a good reminder of the magic and joy of the Christmas season.  And I hope we can inject a little of that from time to time throughout the year.  
Here's a list of things remembered from the season: 
Jones giving Santa high five. 
Santa asked Jones what Thea wanted for Christmas with no hesitation his response was "snacks".  (This is so her).
Thea in the snow suit hardly able to move at the tree farm.
