December 22nd, 23rd, 24th
Merry Christmas
Well we couldn't find a bell ringer to save our lives
this year it seems like there were less and less of them
we might have to add that to our volunteer list for next year

 made cut out cookies 
which is always fun and disastrous
love the flour mess and how they walk away and leave flour footprints everywhere
love this time with them

this little sweet girl  who can't stop praying for a sister and can't wait to be a momma loved playing in the extra crumbs for an hour
she loved the feeling in her fingers
i just let her play until she was done

December 23rd

the kiddos all argue over who's going to bring the treats in where ever we go
I 'm surprised they've even made it to the door and not on the ground
the library staff is awesome here in town
 we go there weekly 
the kiddos love to read
 I secretly told them that the library put a cap on how many books they can take out
32 per child is way too many books for this momma to keep track of.

some kiddo snapped this fuzzy one

December 24th

yes we went to walmart and kwik trip and found some people to bless at 6:30 in the morning
this was so much fun
the kiddos taped about 25 different notes with candy canes and dollar bills on random things in the store.  
I forgot my camera in the car but
i loved seeing what product they picked to stick their note on
we also decided to bless some workers at various locations with a gift card for working on Christmas Eve

We love doing our random acts of kindness advent every year
hopefully you get some ideas to carry on with your families
it is so much fun
we are already talking about some new ones for next year
our goal is  to do at least 2 or 3 every month now throughout the year
Thanks for joining us for it!

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

(this little guy from a reverse vasectomy)

God has been so good and faithful

(this amazing and loving husband)

"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 and being the Lord's hand and feet as we go through this journey
 Blessings from our family to yours

  Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Love David, Jill, Odin, Jonah, Olivia, Jeremiah, Gabriel
