The kids both soaked up all the sights - the lights, the yard decorations, the music and all of the people walking around. We asked Harper when we first arrived to make sure to tell us when she saw her most favorite house. We walked up to a house with beautiful colored lights and two GIANT candy canes in the front yard. Harper starred at the house with a glazed/mesmerized expression and stated confidently and simply: "This one's my favorite". Bentley even found his favorite house that was lit up red and green... we literally had to drag him away from it.
It's so refreshing to see the magic of Christmas through the eyes of your children... and so fun to see them try to understand it too. Just today while we were out shopping as a family, Harper was asking me what everyone was doing. I said they were all getting ready for Christmas. Harper then pointed at a man walking past us and asked, "is he going to sing Happy Birthday to Jesus?" I love that having these little people in our lives really help us, as adults, get back to the real importance of Christmas - celebrating what Jesus did for us and loving others the way he loves us.
