For day 24, we invited someone who is lonely this Christmas to a Christmas Eve service with us and over to our house to make dumplings on Christmas afternoon!  She is from China … Continue reading →
  • 24 Days of Giving: Days 20-22
    For day 20, we left a Chick-Fil-A gift card and note in our mailbox for our mailman.  We got to peek out the window and watch him get it, which was so fun for the children to do! For day 21, we donated to Project Hopeful by purchasing things like mattresses for orphans, goats, a … Continue reading →

    For day 14, we took 4 big sub sandwiches to our local firestation. We thought it would be a big hit with the firemen but God love their hearts, they were more concerned about giving us hats and stickers and letting the children climb in their firetruck and ring their bell. I think they gave … Continue reading →

    Day 5 was a flop. We attempted to bake cookies to deliver but they turned out hard and over-baked. Oops. So we tried again this morning and made cinnamon rolls right from the tube (Thank you Immaculate Baking Company!) We snuck down the street and left them at a friend’s door who lost her sweet … Continue reading →

Today begins our family tradition of our Giving Calendar! We’re beyond excited!! For our Advent every year, we do 25 days … Continue reading →

Day 5 was a flop. We attempted to bake cookies to deliver but they turned out hard and over-baked. Oops. So we tried again this morning and made cinnamon rolls right from the tube (Thank you Immaculate Baking Company!) We snuck down the street and left them at a friend’s door who lost her sweet 17 year old son last year. She has become such a sweet family friend, my children just love her! They enjoyed ringing the door bell and then taking off running! So much fun!

For day six, we made homemade cards for a prisoner!

Day 7 & 8: Dad took the children to Wal-Mart yesterday so that they could buy a beverage for a Salvation Army bell ringer, but no one was there ringing. So we went back today and a lady was there! She was super thankful for her drink and let us take a picture.

It was so sunny I couldn’t get anyone but Cole to look up in any of these pictures though!

The older boys kept talking about how fun it was to leave $5 Chick-Fil-A gift cards on people’s cars so we also did that again, this time in the Wal-Mart parking lot! They all had fun picking out which car they wanted to RACK (Random Acts of Christmas Kindness). Caden was especially excited to RACK the ambulance. We were still driving around when the firemen came out to their vehicle, but they didn’t see our paper and gift card!! I hope it stayed attached until they got back to the station, otherwise it may have flew off somewhere, yikes!

I wasn’t going to post the closed-eyes, not-going-to-look-up pics, but then thought, hey, let’s keep it real, pictures don’t always turn out like we moms want them too, right? Life’s not perfect. Merry Christmas!

Alex had been dressing up and pretending to be a farmer at home and didn’t want to take these overalls off today!
