december fun


these stars are getting so big...


yes we let our children play with their toys on the tree, around the tree and with the tree.  By the time Christmas comes the tree looks pretty shabby.  Jonah already took off all the ornaments and redid the lights.  The problem is when they put ships in there or big stuffed animals they pull the lights out with them.  Ohh the memories were making!




thank you for the blessings...we appreciate all of you loving on us and such great surprises!






Jonah is studying sphere layers


We've made a lot of soup this past week.  I don't even have to add chicken.  They love it!



Love this little star...





hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating Jesus birth with your loved ones!

day 21



So the workers we were going to bless were gone for the holidays so we drove around and found about 20 men working on the water lines.  They were so nice and appreciative about it.  Of course I forgot my phone to get pictures.  I have been completely terrible with pictures of our random acts of kindness this year.






this is life....

Day 22

 

These were soooo delicious.  they were homemade Twix bars.  Really easy and really yummy





This is always a fun one.  We filled our movie bucket with ELF the movie, popcorn, and lots of fun and yummy candy.  It was snowing out when we dropped it off and it was oh so beautiful.

  Praying you all have a wonderful Christmas. 

We are gathering with our family and celebrating the
Saviour and making memories.

There are so many things to be thankful for this year.


"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6


Thank you for blessing us through this last year.
 Blessings from our family to yours.

  Have a Merry Christmas!

day 19





We decided to get some yummy good Ghiradelli chocolates and bow them up and ring and run..





Our homeschool group of older kiddos had such a great time playing games after lunch waiting for their next class.  It was great.   Love to see and hear them playing and having fun!  Thankful for this wonderful group.


Day 20



This was fun.  Miah made some cards and picked the houses.  He was so cute running up to the doors and putting letters in their mailboxes.  Of course he picks the houses with the mailboxes on the front porch.  Dogs barking and motion lights going on.  Too funny!


Happy Tuesday!

Day 17


We looked high and low for some but couldn't find any.  We went to a few stores.  We will try again next weekend.  Ours seem to only be out on the weekends here.

 This little star is so hammy and so much fun. 
 He's starting to look like a little big guy.





Quiet time at the funks...Love this time in the afternoon.
For those of you wondering...there actually is such a thing at this house.

Day 18


The only place by us that has vending machines is Walmart.  Sorry about the lack of a camera on most of my random acts but I just wasn't thinking I guess.  We loaded up the machines and went and got some things.  On the way out we were able to see some kiddos getting some things out of them.  So fun to see others excitement!!

Have an awesome Monday!

Day 15


This is some of what she bought with her festival gift card and she was soooo excited.  You gotta love how she decorated her rolling pin.  This girl can never get enough Sharpies!
 




Day 16



We do this a couple times because it's a favorite. 


Gabe has been on a painting kick lately.  Not painting anything special just using his imagination and having fun with the paint on his hands. 


This little star has found a certain spot he loves.  He just sits there and hangs out.  Brings snacks and toys there too.
 





Go share some love on this super Saturday!
