Producer Notes:

One of the joys I have this time of year is getting to relive the magic of the holidays through the eyes of my 5 kids -- from my 12-yr-old watching "Little Women" for the first time to my 2-yr-old singing "Away in the Manger" with the motions. And Christmas is a time for all of us to keep the kid inside alive. I love that I can still see the wonder on my kids' faces when they open presents, sing carols, or see some beautiful holiday decorations. One of the biggest losses of adulthood is that wonder seems to fade away. The movie "Elf" has become a favorite of many because Buddy shows us what unbridled wonder looks like. Let's reclaim some wonder this year, especially as we celebrate Christ's birth. It's okay to say "WOW!" to the story we've heard a thousand times. After all, it doesn't get more WOW than this: God became one of us and lived with us, including tooth aches. The Creator of the galaxies allowed himself to experience tooth aches (including losing all his baby teeth)... because He loves us so much, and wanted to give us second birth.  WOW!  Let's keep reclaiming the wonder.  Merry Christmas!  (Dave)
