Santa came and left LOTS of presents for Caleb. Being only 10 months old last Christmas, it was not such a big thing for him. But he certainly figured out quickly what it was about this year. It seems the tall red presents caught his eye first. He sure made a beeline for that vacuum cleaner. I wonder if he will ever be that excited about a vacuum cleaner again. It sure did it for him this year. Mama might not need to clean the carpet for months.
While we are here, you should notice the stockings Beth and John knitted. They are pretty special. I sure wish I had been there to watch him open all his gifts and dig into his stocking.
Cleb's birthday is coming up VERY soon and we hope to do some face time with him then. Maybe we'll get to see him open the little things we sent. It is so much fun to see the delight in a little one's eyes. Let's hope that his delight never fades because he is expecting too much.
Life should be about relationships and not about things. Materialism has ruined many people in this fine nation. They have come to expect that they will always get anything they want and even without any effort of their own parts. It is a very sad thing and will mean our demise as a country some day. I'm praying that we come to grips with this issue, repent and turn our lives back to focusing on God instead of things. God help us.
Now that I've finished Christmas, on to January... oh, February! What happened to those 31 days. Time flies when your blogging!
