It hasn't gone unnoticed that the kids have been especially sweet to each other since Thanksgiving.
This year I made an interesting discovery: the more Christmas music I play, the better the kids behave. I'm not sure if the music gets them in the mood, or if it acts as a reminder that "the jolly one" is watching.
I wish the same would hold true with The Real Deal. The kids seem more reverent towards "the one who gives gifts", than "the One who gives Life".
Dirt and I have so much work to do.
