A Busy Week

This last week has been a stretch, but in the end it was quite fun.  Gifts to buy, parties to attend, Christmas programs, winter break, cookie baking, oh my!  We crammed this week full of activities.  I must admit I have stayed up much too late in the last ten days -- this one being no exception.  I am tired and so are the kids, but I wouldn't have changed a thing.  We are blessed to celebrate this wonderful season!

Not much to report.  I have been so occupied with all the activities to ponder anything too deeply.  That will probably come after the holidays are over and I can breathe again.  I have, however, been reminded constantly of God's abundant blessings in my life.  I am so grateful for our wonderful friends and family.  I am encouraged this season by all those that surround us that are loving us and cheering us on this Christmas.  Thank you all!

Some pictures of what made us smile this week.....

 An exciting new pet.  There is a good story here...I'll post about it later :)
