We've had the opportunity to go caroling twice this Christmas season. Once with our friends and the other time with our church group to a retirement home. Each time my heart was touched. After returning home from doing caroling with our friends, our good friend Richard received a message from one of the homes we visited, it read:

"Thank you guys for Caroling at our house. It brought tears to my eyes. Christmas is always tough for me since mine were very different than what my kids have now. I try to make the best of every Christmas and move forward...unfortunately the Christmas lights were not in the cards this year. Every time the fan runs in the garage freezer we blow a fuse & the outside lights go out. Any way thank you so much for making my night and the holidays. Much Love!Jill"

The retirement center was an amazing experience as well. It was so touching to see the faces of the elderly light up with each song and to hug and to hear the stories of some of the residents there. I was so thankful to share this experience with my girls.

"The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all to hear!"

Christmas Baking

We made some goodies this year with our good friends the Williams. We made sugar cookies, fudge, Babe Ruth bars, Ooey gooey bars, chocolate covered pretzels and peanut butter balls. I love Christmas treats!

10 minutes in the Life of Mason

My little boy is sweet but boy is he into EVERYTHING! If we hear the kitchen chair sliding across the kitchen floor we come running and this is why.....

"Here Mom, let me help you with dinner."

" Hmmm, what wall haven't I colored on?"

" More cheese? Don't mind if I do!"

Christmas Program

Hannah had her Kindergarten Music Program last night. Hannah did a great job singing her little heart out. They finished the program with the kids all doing a Christmas jig, sooo cute!

Christmas in a small town

Our town hosted a little gathering to kick off Christmas, with Santa, hot chocolate and carolers. It was pretty cold but it was a nice kick off to Christmas!
