At the beginning of December we attended a Christmas party with some of our homeschool friends. Emma loved decorating and eating her cookie!

As did Corbin……by the time I go to him his was gone!

Hailey helped write messages in Christmas cards for some of the folks at the rescue mission. She also helped watch some of the younger kids on the playground afterwards!

All the kids listened quietly and intently to the story.

This was a great story. I fully intend to purchase it for my family to read together each year!

A sweet friend brought us a small sampling of her Christmas cookies. Yum!

Emma enjoys helping prepare snacks for herself and her little sister. πŸ™‚ She got all of these supplies out all by herself. She’s very proud!

During our visit to the library, Elle made some new friends.

I will say that these friends were much better behaved than some of the other ‘friends’ that were running around the library that day! Blocks were flying, children were fighting….I’m happy to say that my little ones (nor big ones!) did not enter the fray. I thought it was very telling that my oldest said, “It was kind of crazy at the library today.” We had a good day….I’m sure there have been times when mine have added to the crazy!

Emma and Elle had a great time shopping afterwards. Hailey got to experience shopping with little ones. πŸ˜‰ I think she was a bit stressed, but she made it!

Corbin’s class had a ‘packing party’ at church. They helped collect items to put into bags for orphans at a mission in Tibet. We had a great time and it was nice to be able to pray for some of the children there. We learned about a little girl who was abandoned by her father at age 5, but has found life and joy at the mission. She is now working toward her college degree! We read about another little boy who was unwanted by relatives when his mother died, but has also found truth and life at the mission! I’m so thankful we were able to be a part of preparing something special for them and that we could pray together for their specific needs. Thanks, Blue Ridge Community Church!

Picking out items to put into the bag

Some of the items that went into the bag were hygiene items, notecards, pens, and a toy.

Corbin with his group leader. He had great things to say about Corbin and it made me very proud of my son. Corbin also gave him a birthday gift, and I think he was a special blessing to his teacher that night. πŸ™‚

Me with my boy when we had finished packing our bag.

The church had put together a whole table of goodies for the kids and parents to enjoy after their packing party.

We indulged in a few then went home to enjoyΒ Family Fun Night with the rest of the family!

I got a few fun shots of the little girls yesterday in front of the tree before church. πŸ™‚
