Advent Manger.

The kids have been doing an advent manger that they got from Church. There is a message every day about the sticker they get to put on. We have all really enjoyed doing this. The kids have been understanding the story so much better this year.

Dicken"s Festival.

We made it to the Dickens festival this past weekend. It was so beautiful to walk downtown and enjoy the vendors.

We took our friend Jackson and we rode the horse carriage and enjoyed all the Christmas decorations. We were able to watch the parade outside this year. It was a beautiful night. The kids got a blue candy the blue mouths.

Our Christmas tree.

Gideon liked to put all his ornaments in the middle of the tress where we couldn't see them.
Gideon's favorite ornament is his John Deere tractor from Nana.
We strung our popcorn...we were all not feeling well so it wasn't as enjoyable as usual.

Isabelle and Gideon had alot of fun decorating the tree this year. It was so much fun for me to watch. They talked about every ornament they put on the tree and every ornament has a story. It was a very wonderful night.

Thanksgiving 2011.

Yes,I know it is Dec 11 and I am Finally posting our Thanksgiving. It has been a crazy last couple of weeks. We were so sick this past month and trying to get ready for all the holidays and kids birthday's. We had a wonderful thanksgiving. The kids made their turkeys and listed what they were thankful for. We had a full house with two families that didn't have family around here. This is the first year since we have moved that I felt OK being away from home and celebrating a holiday. God has given me the Grace to go forward and made me realize our holidays will never be the same as they once were but he has Blessed us with new traditions with others that are in our same situation. Before our dinner Jason read Psalm 100. We have so much to be thankful for. The one thing I am so thankful for is God's unconditional love and his faithfulness. It has been a long road of healing for me and alot of hard lessons these last couple of years but God has clearly showed his love and I know very clearly we have never been alone...he has been faithful in all his promises...he has provided us with all our needs !!!
