Missing: Baby Jesus

The Christmas season is upon us. Even down here in the 80 degree weather the malls are decked out and the neighborhoods are full of beautiful lights and decorations. The talk around the Aldrich house has quickly turned from pilgrims, the Mayflower, and turkey to presents, Santa, and Jesus's birthday. (I am convinced that Dylan throws in that bit about Jesus's birthday for Garth's and my sake, but at least he is talking about it.) On that note.... we have a Little People Manger scene that Grammy gave us a couple of years ago. I love it because it is a decoration that little hands can play with. I put it out a couple of days ago and Jaydon took to it quickly. Well, I as I was picking up the various pieces around the house last night, I realized that I had found them all except Baby Jesus. Go figure. So Baby Jesus is missing at the moment. Isn't that so true in life. This beautiful season meant to celebrate the true King's birthday and He somehow gets lost in our busy schedules and shopping. I hope that we can all take some time and give this holiday season to Him. I hope to find Baby Jesus so he can complete the manger scene, but mostly I pray we all find Jesus the King of Kings and Lord of Lords the Christmas Season.

Many blessings!!

P.S. You know I couldn't not post at least one picture.
