Here we are waiting for the Christmas parade to begin. The horn got honked a few times. ; ) On Wednesday night we made gingerbread houses at church. Preston put our tree up...with the assistance of some eager little helpers.They decorated the front two bottom branches beautifully.I'm just kidding, they did a really good job this year. Then they posed so sweetly for me.We made some mini bell shaped cherry and apple pie turnover thingies. Ha, say that five times!Yum!Sunday they were in the children's program at church.They did very good and are so precious! After church we went to the Christmas party/fundraiser at Brady's school. I took a quick pic after our horse and carriage ride. Brrr, it was cold! And the mice were a big hit!
I have a couple of prayer request, if you would. Our pastor now has cancer in his liver as well as his lungs. The doctors told him without chemo he has 2 months and with the chemo up to a year. We are praying for a miracle...complete healing! I also pray for God's peace and comfort to pour over him and his family.
The store manager Preston has been filling in for has quit! After Christmas they will be doing the interviews for the position. Please pray for Preston throughout this long process and that we will hear and be obedient to God as He leads and directs us.
Thank You! I hope you all are enjoying this holiday season too!
This week has been a busy one. Brady's school is having a community Christmas party that is a fundraiser for the school tomorrow. I volunteered to do one of the craft rooms. I should have thought a little bit more about what to do because I spent most of my week cutting out these cute little mice! 215 bodies, 215 ears, 430 colored ear pieces. Last night I stayed up until 2am putting all the pieces to make one plus a candy cane into individual baggies. 190 of them! Don't tell anyone I was 10 short. The extras I assembled and hung from the ceiling in the craft room.
Can you belive it's December already and 2011 will be here before we know it! It's going to be a great month! There are birthdays to celebrate and family get togethers to look forward to! I pray Brady and Madelyn will truly know and understand why we celebrate Christmas this year. The older they get the more fun the holidays become!
