Elijah's First Christmas

What a special Christmas it was to have Elijah in our lives this year. He is such a sweet little guy, with the most beautiful smiling eyes, full of joy and happiness. It's amazing how children have such a special way of making Christmas seem that much more special and magical, and help to remind us of the meaning of the season.

I found the lyrics to a beautiful song called "Christmas Through a Child's Eyes," which I foudn to be very fitting and I thought I'd share them. Hope you enjoy, and may you enjoy every Christmas through the eyes of a child...

Every year I'd wait for the season
Only Christmas time can bring
I thought I understood the reason
For all the parties and caroling

Every year I'd search for the meaning
Every time I'd dress the tree
Each new ornament and garland
Each decoration was all I'd see
And all that Christmas meant to me

Then someone told me Christmas is for children
And I left that behind too long ago
But now I see Christmas through a child's eyes
My new son's eyes

Now every time we ring in the season
And play a Christmas melody
I know that the moment he hears it
He'll bring Christmas back to me
