Krazy Kringle & Kringle Thingles 25 -Opening Gifts

These are the rest of the crazy things K has been up to. He will need to go back to the North Pole soon, but I have a feeling he will make an appearance or two before then. ;)

Kringle reminded John to take his medicine. (Ear infection & busted head)

He wanted to do some baking with us!

He needed some coffee.

He left antlers & a reindeer nose for our car!

He got in the craft cabinet & wanted to do some Christmas crafts.

He helped us address Christmas cards & write thank-yous. (We probably should have sent those by now...)

He reminded the boys to do their chores.

He wanted to watch a Christmas movie.

& this morning he had Christmas Eve breakfast ready for us!


I have enjoyed going through Truth in the Tinsel with my boys so much. It's been so interesting & I've learned many things! Like I said in the beginning, I did the lessons as life allowed, so I did not cover all of them in the book. (Lots to look forward to next Christmas!) I highly recommend the book to all friends-children, or no children! The author is Lisa Welchel. It's also available as an ebook.

The boys found Kringle in the midst of torn up wrapping paper. He had opened up a present! You know what that means!! We get to talk about opening presents!!

The traditions of opening gifts varies all over the world. Some open on Christmas Eve, some wait until Christmas Day, but none of that really matters. One of the important things about a gift is that you open it. Period.

How would you feel if you sacrificed time & money to find the perfect gift for someone you loved very much-just to give it to them & they set the package on a shelf & look at it & talk about how that was so sweet & how you're the best, but they never open the gift?

God gave us the greatest gift ever by sending His son to Earth to be born of a virgin, live a sinless life, die for us, be buried, & then come back to life. This is the greatest gift that could ever be given, but like all other gifts that are given, it must be opened!

Have you opened your heart to receive Him as Savior? If not, let today be the day!*

Merry Christmas, friends!!

*Please email me if you would like to talk about this, or if you have any questions. I'd love to hear from you & discuss!
