Things That Make Me Smile 12/23/16

Jake (10½), Alyssa (8½), Zac (7), Tyler (4½), Nicholas (2)

This week, my mom and I had our annual Christmas cookies baking day, the kids had their Christmas program at church, and we continued with the festivities of the season. It's such a busy time, but filled with many Smiles and memories. 
1. Alyssa: "Oh, you're painting a Christmas tree. Forgot."
Tyler: "You're painting a Christmas tree for God?" 

2. Last year, Zac was too nervous to even participate in the children's program at church and instead sat with me in the pew and watched. This year, he sang a solo. He was still nervous and wanted to change his mind right before it started. We talked about how being courageous means doing something even when you're scared. I wasn't sure if he'd sing, but when the time came, he stood tall and sang out.

3. Zac, getting ready to start a new chapter book: "I can't wait to finish this book! It's probably going to be today. Then I get to read the next one!"

4. Me: "Hey, we still need to read How the Grinch Stole Christmas."
Alyssa: "Dad does."
Me: "Oh, wow, thanks."
Jake: "It's not that we don't like you. We just like Dad better."  

5. "Where do you think the Tooth Fairy gets the money from? Do you think she has a day job?"

6. Nicholas making sure he was ready for church.

7.  Zac: "Can I have it next?"
Alyssa: "What's the magic word to get what you want?"
Zac: "Grandma."
8. Jake: "Mom, if you're not supposed to commit adultery, does that mean you're not supposed to turn into an adult?"

What made you Smile this week?
