"Twas the accident before Christmas...

'Twas the night before Christmas and at aunt Lilian's house were two steps that my son fell on.
This was the fvery first ER visit JP has had in his four years of life and he made it very memorable because it happened on Christmas Eve! Despite the inital screaming, JP did very well and stopped crying in the car on the way to the hospital. The Doctor gave us the option of stitches or glue. We chose to have him glued back together. When we got there it only took about 15 minutes before they saw us and our stay from start to finish was only an hour. We were praying for a quick trip to the ER and God was faithful to answer that prayer!

Advent Conspiracy

Here's a cool little video about the reason of the CHRISTmas season. Hopefully this will motivate us all to keep the right perspective and act.

12 Days of Cookies

This year I wanted to do something fun and start a new tradition with my little ones. So I thought I would borrow my good friend's idea and make cookies leading up to Christmas. Sandra, does this every Christmas with her little ones and I thought it was a great idea. Since she is such a great cook, I should really ask her for her recipes, but I just found some online to make. Today, we made Candy Cane cookies. As you can see, Gracie didn't have an apron, so I tied a kitchen towel around her neck so she wouldn't feel left out. It got the job done!

Here's the finished product! JP liked the batter better than the cookies. My other little chef was so tired from all the baking she did that she laid down on the kitchen floor and fell asleep.

Monday Night Football

We have been having Zach and his Bible College friends over every Monday night for football. They do not have tv's in their dorms so they come over, eat, hang out, and best of all watch football! We enjoyed having them over and we pray these guys would have an awesome next semester wherever they may go.

Trimming the tree!

Last weekend we helped set up Val and Joe's Christmas tree. They went to a tree farm and picked out the tree they wanted and was able to cut it down too! They picked out a 9 foot tree! We weren't sure if Joe had more fun decorating than the kids. He had to put the ornaments up in a "specific, but random" order. In other words, the ornaments could not be level with each other or too close. Val and I thought it was so funny! It was hilarious to watch him decorate his tree!
