Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. -Psalm 127 2-4

We have recieved another reward and are awaiting its arrival this Christmas.

Yes, Christmas.  As in the actual day.

The kids are over the moon and discuss daily name choices.  Max announced the other day, in a dreamy, far away voice,

“I hope the baby IS born on Christmas.  Then we can name him Jesus.”

We assured him that was not an option.

No matter the sex or the name, though, it will be the best present ever.  A reward indeed.
