Merry Christmas! 

While visiting the Christmas light display around Lake Defuniak on Saturday evening with several friends, I took a moment to ask my six year old son, "What does Christmas mean to you?" 

My son answered, "Daddy, Christmas is about being with your family and friends, and being nice, and giving gifts, and about Jesus' birthday." 

As parents, we constantly try to teach our kids and don't always believe that our kids are listening. I'm hear to tell you, they are indeed listening. 

Merry Christmas to you all. May your Christmas be filled with family, friends, the joy of giving, and Jesus.
