Christmas through a child's eyes

Everyone is talking about the holidays, especially Christmas, even though the turkey hasn't even been cooked for Thanksgiving yet. There are discussions about whether or not one will participate in the Black Friday sales and each store seems to open earlier than the next to try to outmanuver each other. Christmas is just coming too quickly. Heck I still haven't taken the Halloween costumes out of the back of the car yet. But in an effort to start fostering that Holiday mood, I remembered how much I liked Christmas as a kid. Now my own boys look forward to the holiday and let's not fool anyone, they like the presents. Looking back a few years, I found these drawings done by my son, Noah, when he was 6 year's old. I remember how he'd draw Santas, reindeer and Christmas trees with presents over and over in anticipation of the big day. After all Christmas is such a kid holiday. So here's a glimpse of Christmas through a child's eyes. It does have a magical quality to it, don't you think?
