The Hildreth Family, Christmas Love
Every Year at Christmas is a special time in our home. We have always
taught the children the real meaning of Christmas is the day Jesus was born.
It is a time of year for giving and its not what you receive but its about
celebrating His birth and being thankful for having each other as a family
to celebrate with. There has been a few Christmas's when daddy has been
deployed like this Christmas it will be just us but we know daddy will
celebrate the same way just as if he was home with us. Before we open gifts we
first sing Happy Birthday to Jesus a prayer and then we open our gifts.
Its something that the kids will always rememeber and the times that daddy is
here we have waited up so we can get a glimpse of Santa before he eats our
cookies and drinks our eggnog we leave out for him and the food we make
for his reindeer we scatter in the yard. Merry Christmas from the Hildreth
