A Chinese Christmas

So what does a first Christmas in America look like for a 10 year old boy from China?
and when I stop to look at it through his eyes I see the same thing.  Funny how the Lord can change you perspective on things when He changes your heart.

Just let me celebrate the 
birthday of my KING!
We tried to keep things low key and tired to focus 
verything on Jesus!

Gifts can be overwhelming to a child who has never really had anything of his own!
John was the first one up and dressed in his traditional Chinese outfit.


John loved giving gifts to others , he has such a giving heart. John with the amazing bright neon shirt he picked out just for Aaron.
John could not wait for Levi to open what he had picked out for him.  The funny thing is John had already told him what it was, so secret keeping for him. 
Most of our photos look like this, look at John' silly face.
I snapped quick enough to get a good on.
Chinese food has been our Christmas meal tradition for 6 or 7 years, I think the Lord had something to do with that decision, this year it truly was a Chinese Christmas in our home.
Yes, I can eat with chopsticks...
...and I can too.

The amazingly handsome 4 men in my life.
My beautiful daughter, Sarah,  and her Ben.
Happy Birth Jesus
Jesus the best gift ever given to the World!
