The Ghost of Christmas Future

I realize that we are now responsible for how our daughter views Christmas and giving gifts and what it's all about. It makes us pay a little more attention to how we approach the holidays. It's really easy to let it just be about eating and decorating and shopping and getting stuff. I know she doesn't get it now, but we want to be more purposeful about what goes on around her during this season. I hope she grows to love Christmas for good reasons, and I'm sure she'll still want an iPod or a Wii or whatever. But it has been more meaningful for us because of her. I hope she learns to ski as soon as she can walk!
