Tonight was difficult! It’s going to be that way for the rest of the month. It’s just something new that we have to adjust ourselves to. Jared has tithing settlement all this month and so we don’t get to see him at all on Sundays. Tonight was the First Presidency Christmas Devotional which the kids and I got to watch, in full! It was quite the accomplishment especially since I’ve been having a rough couple of weeks with the kids and their behavior.
The devotional had great stories and thoughts about how to make our Christmas experience better. They talked about being a good receiver which I thought was really important for the kids to hear.
As the devotional was finishing up and I was getting leftover cake prepared for after dinner, Jacob asked if it was for daddy. I said it was for them, the kids. Emma must have over heard because she came in and agreed with what I guess Jacob was trying to say. She said we should bring it to daddy since he was working hard and wouldn’t be home ’til late. I asked the boys if that was okay and everyone was on board. We gussied it up a bit and within 10 minutes we had a beautiful snow globe cake with the baby Jesus at the center. It would be the perfect dessert to give the bishopric after hearing the devotional and to kick off our Christmas holiday.
