When was baby Jesus born?

Gretchen probably asks Steve and I this question at least once a day for the last few weeks. We tell her Christmas but the deer in the headlights look she gives us makes me think she has no idea what Christmas is. Of course she knows it means presents and she knows it has something to do with Jesus since we keep telling her about him. In Sunday school and at home, we read books like Mary's Baby or Christmas in the Barn but we also read Olivia Helps with Christmas. I would love to be able to peek in her ever turning mind and see her vision of Christmas! Next year she will be much better at articulating her interpretation of the holiday season so I will just have to be patient.

This is a gorgeous picture, I've added it to our "Christmas album" that gets put away with the decorations. It contains all the photocards and a few family snapshots during the season. It's fun to watch the kids grow... and then not so fun to realize how fast it went by when they're grown.
