The Best Present, Take 2

When I called the girls to the table for dinner tonight, they were in the middle of a conversation that began back in December.  Remember "The Best Present"?  I have no idea how the subject came up again today, but this is the part of the conversation I heard:

Jaela:  Wouldn't it be neat to die when I'm a kid and get to see God NOW?!?
Anya:  I think I want to wait until Christmas Eve and get to see Jesus for Christmas.
Jaela:  Or maybe Christmas morning, after we open our stockings!
Macey (shouted from the other room):  After we open our presents!
Anya:  YEAH!  I want to die on CHRISTMAS!  That would be the BEST present for God to have!!!
