A new tradition has been started in our family!
Our four-year old grandson threw a fit in the grocery story. He insisted on purchasing fresh flowers for the dining room table for the Christmas dinner.
"Why do we HAVE to have fresh flowers?" our daughter-in-law asked amid the busy store. (She was probably more than a little "harried" at the time; toting the new baby, trying to keep up with the four-year old, AND doing the grocery shopping.)
"Because we ALWAYS have fresh flowers for every birthday party, and you told me Christmas is really Jesus’ birthday!"
It’s a nice tradition, don’t you agree?
