    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 →

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 chicken, etc for people in Uganda and Ethiopia. Everyone really enjoyed picking out what they thought would be a neat thing to give!

For day 22, we went to Wal-Mart and bought two gift cards.  Alex gave them to a sweet family friend and said, “One is for you to keep, and one to give away.  Because it is more blessed to give than to receive.”  🙂   So cute to watch Alex do that!

What else have we been up to lately?
We did this Christmas tree/ Bible activity and it was so meaningful. We looked up this list of Bible verses (there are only 14 and they go in order! 15-20 minutes max).  We drew a little Christmas tree beside each verse in their Bible to remind them of WHY Jesus came. Each verse tells a REASON for Jesus’ coming. So so precious and blew me away pondering on it. Plus the child will see these little Christmas trees in their Bible for years to come, what a treasured memory of looking those up… http://familymanweb.com/reason-christmas-family-activity/

Our theme this month… “BE the gift.” We went caroling just on our street and it was so precious. The children WERE the gift! Hubby played the guitar softly and we all sang, I think most our neighbors enjoyed it as we heard all the “awww’s” and “how cute!” Perfect weather for it, no complaints of being too cold! And who doesn’t like to hear little voices sing “Away in a Manger” and “Silent Night.” I enjoyed the peacefulness of walking up and down our street in the dark with the guitar softly playing in between houses.
