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.

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.
