Christmas is coming!!!

A few snapshots of our past week’s activities to celebrate Christmas:


#6 and me making 50+ Candy cane Christmas mice for her to give to classmates and friends at church. 


The finished product!



#6 and class singing “Ding, Ding, Dong” (Chinese “Jingle Bells” )



#5 at his class party. He was picking up the sprinkles and running them through his fingers over and over again (stimming) so I made him do it over a frosted cookie...



#3 and Dad (and friend) helping out at local
food pantry. #2 and #4 were there too, but no one got their picture....




Sunday before Christmas (and the boys snuck in Mr. Smiley!)



#5 actually sitting and watching 5 minutes of a Christmas movie with us!!!

2019 New Years resolution—starting early

I am starting my 2019 resolution now: I aim to blog more. I am going to do this weekly but the only way to be successful in this goal is to make sure it is attainable! I must K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple and Sweet). So—just a photo of the week and why it touched me...



My dear sister and her husband as they look on their first baby as she fights for her life. They are feeling so many feelings here, and always. God is mindful of them and they are putting faith in Him to carry their daughter—and to carry them—through all these many difficulties. They are in my prayers always.
