One week from today is Christmas! It’s probably cliche to say where did the time go? But it’s true. Where did it go?
That aside, it’s Christmas time, and I love that. I want to give you another peek of random life. Everyone here is balancing work, Christmas activities, and for John, house prep, wedding, and work. We’re grateful for how the Lord has filled our time, and I can’t wait to share with you later about our annual Christmas caroling last night.
I’d love to hear 1 special Christmas tradition you enjoy!
Brunch with sweet friends.
Making a Christmas gift to send to a friend!
LOVE this one! We watched Calia one night, and this was the set up during Bible time.
An early morning help-John-clean-up-before-carpet-came session!
A Nathan Maxwell family outing!
Arnold kind of gets himself into fixes sometimes.
Nathan’s kiddos concerned when their neighbor had to be taken to the hospital. I love Nathan and Melanie’s hearts for their neighbors!
Betsy with white-chocolate covered Oreos.
Surprising Nathan with decorating outside, something he hadn’t had time to do.
This was a special make-pizza-with-Daddy night. Something Christopher does annually with his children! So sweet.
Anna took Betsy to the store to get a wreath for Grandad’s grave. Sweet aunt + niece time.
Yep, that’s Benjamin! Cute little guy.
This was a really great photo–Ellie and Arnold. Hmm. Looks like something is up?!
Anna worked on caroling cards.
Dad, Mom, and Anna tackled a huge basement organizing project Saturday.
And Mary and I went to Kansas City to go Christmas shopping. On what was likely the busiest day of the season, but when one’s schedule doesn’t work to go earlier, well, you take what you can get! We had a delightful time, talking, getting coffee, and shopping!
We do a lot of our shopping online! 🙂
Bless Mom’s heart. She made over 40 loaves of Poppy Seed Bread. That’s a lot!
Finishing out with smiles from Betsy and me!
“When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.”
