Arden's Christmas Prayer

After we finished reading our Advent Book on Christmas morning, we asked if any of the kids wanted to pray, and Arden volunteered. This was his prayer:

"Dear God,
Thank you for Jesus.
Thank you for our calendar.*
Thank you for my presents.
Thank you for this wonderful day.
Thank you for baby Jesus is in the manger.**
Thank you for this wonderful day.

*He was referring to our advent calendar, on which we've been placing a nativity figure each day since December 1.
**The kids knew that on Christmas morning they could all take a turn placing the final figure, Baby Jesus, in the manger on the advent calendar.
