Here is today’s note…

Hi Isaac! I am so dizzy from hanging upside down yesterday. You really thought that was funny huh? It looked like you liked the fruit basket I got for you to play with in your snack shop.

Ok I am going to tell you a little bit more of the story of baby Jesus and then I will give you the clue…

After baby Jesus was born there was some shepherds looking after their sheep on the hills near Bethlehem.  Suddenly the sky shone bright with light.  Don’t be scared, said an angel, “Go to Bethlehem, there you will a baby who is Christ the Lord.”

Here is the hint for the day…

I like things that are shiny and bright with lights. I am up really high. Can you find me?IMG_0966 IMG_0964 Ollie had climbed all the way on top of the star on our Christmas tree.  Silly Ollie!

  1. Thank you for sharing all your and Isaac's fun with us. It really has been fun hearing about his excitement and seeing all the wonderful terrific pictures you've taken. This was such a terrific idea to do at his age and what a wonderful way to tell the story of Jesus' birth. Very creative! Thanks for sharing the video and sharing the Christmas spirit. It certainly made me smile.

    Merry Christmas…Tracy 🙂

  2. The picture of your "sparkly" tree (the second one) is SO cool – was that trick photography or just a lucky shot – the lights look like diamonds and spray out the light but everything else (Ollie that is) is in focus… very cool picture… and very fun thought-out memory making tradition – do you think you'll be able to keep this up every year?! Isaac will look forward to Ollie every Christmas now… will he be sad when Ollie goes back to the "North Pole" for the rest of the year… will a new friend come next year or will you re-use the Ollie elf? I'm just loving the adventure and thank you for sharing your creativity with me!

  3. I think it is so sweet what you are doing for Isaac. He is going to remember this forever! It is I am sure very magical and real to him! You are a Wonderful Mom! Thanks for sharing. I will have to remember this when I have my own sweet little children. I love the savior and think this is a great way to retell the story of his birth.
    Thank you so much for being so inspirational and motivating!
