Getting ready for Christmas

So, Christmas is just next week. How did you teach your children about Christmas when they don't speak English? We're going to get out the Little People nativity set and teach them the story. My brother-in-law, Yury, is from Belarus and speaks Russian. He and my sister, Heather, & their adorable daughter, Iliana, are coming to celebrate Christmas with us this year! It will be nice to have a quiet Christmas this year and I look forward to having Yury explain what Christmas is all about to Keith & Kristina. Oh, and by the way, if you have a baby or know someone who is going to have a baby - my sister, Heather, has a patent pending on these.

Hey, I talked to my mom and she is going to be out of town tomorrow and Wednesday night. Let me know a good backup day.

That's awesome! What a blessing to be able to have someone who can talk with them like that! :)

I like those Pacipals. I might buy one if there's another time. How great that you will see your sister and niece. I am anxious to see Rach and Max. They may get to come out in the New Year. There's nothing else at all that is as great as family.
