Fun Days With Grandkids

I had a super fun day on Monday with Emma & Ethan.
Their mommy finished Christmas shopping while we played.
The kiddos helped me make a list of 10 things to do.
One of the 10 items was the Santa project.  They counted all the Santas in the house.  After counting they found a total of 61 Santas.  Most of those were on the 2 Christmas trees. 
Next, they created a Santa mask with a paper plate, construction paper, cotton balls & glue.  They had a blast.  

We did finish all 10 fun things on the list.  

Tuesday was another fun day.  I went to their school to watch the Christmas program.  The sweet sound of children singing is so inspiring. 
Jingle Bells
Away In a Manger
bell ringing
Smiling with pride!

Making memories is priceless.

Brothers and sisters:
Rejoice in the Lord always.
I shall say it again: rejoice!
Your kindness should be known to all.
The Lord is near.
Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, 
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, 
make your requests known to God.
Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding 
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7

Wishing you a day of joy . . .

And it will surprise you

I've seen this several times on Facebook this week.
Good advice . . .

do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God.
God is in heaven and you are on earth,
so let your words be few.

There is a quiet place
far from the rapid pace
where God can soothe my troubled mind.
Sheltered by tree and flower
there in my quiet hour with him
my cares are left behind.

Whether a garden small,
or on a mountain tall
new strength and courage there I find,
and then from that quiet place
I go prepared to face a new day
with love for all mankind

Wishing you a day of renewal . . .

Another Fun Fourth

We always enjoy our 4th of July family celebration.
Thank you, Kari, for posting this awesome picture on Facebook.  
I bought Emma's outfit at Sam's several years ago for less than  $4.00.  She got to wear it 3 years.  Time for me to shop for another patriotic outfit for both kiddos.  
They had a good time wearing these glow light creations.
I found them at Hobby Lobby for 60% off.  Great bargain for a box of 50 pieces.  

I'm putting away the decorations today.  
Hubby brought the yard flags in early this morning.  Thanks for jump starting the process, Bob.
