More Snow and off to work we go!

With our Winter Storm and the start of Christmas break for the teenager, (our home schooler is still doing a few lessons over the break) I was hoping my husband would have a snow day as well. It snowed all of saturday evening and off and on sunday. We made snow ice cream.

We had a nice blanketing of snow!

And Monday morning my poor husband had to clean off his truck for work! He broke our broom because of our lack of a snow shovel.

Babies First Snow!

The twins had their first experience in the snow today! They didn't touch it too much and our little girl needed to have Dad hold her hand to walk in it....It was really cute!

There was a pretty cool icicle hanging from the kids swing set!

Our oldest and I made a very small snowman yesterday. He is now covered with another inch or 2 of snow!

Keeping the Trust!

Today my daughter started learning a new Bible verse that I have taken to heart. I am amazed lately by the word. We are facing some challenges and I am trying my hardest to be prayerful and keep my trust in God. We are all human and we all falter, I am thankful to have a husband who reminds me of the love we have in and for God. I am also Thankful to my daughter, who in her innocence is teaching how to faithfully love. For the past couple of days I have had a hard time keeping the Christmas spirit alive in myself. It is not fair for my little ones to have a mother who is not happy and faithful in the Lord. Especially at this time of the year when we are trying to teach them the true meaning of Christmas. Who Jesus was and is and what he did for us. To be giving as God gave for us. These are the versus from my daughter's curriculum and that have lifted me up today.

Psalm 34:8-13
(8) Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. (9) Fear the Lord, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing. (10) The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing. (11) Come, my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. (12) Whoever of you loves life and desires to many good days, (13) keep your tongue from evil and lips from speaking lies.

I am glad there are resources out there for us to be reminded with. The greatest of all is love. Thank you God for my husband, parents, children and friends who love me even when I fall. You are great.

Christmas and Fun!

Isn't he so handsome....I am so thankful and blessed to have such a loving and fun husband.

My husband and some of his co-workers made the table decorations! The night was great! We won a personal GPS, so now hopefully we will always know where we are!

Saturday was my husband's Christmas party for work! We had an evening of decorating, enjoying a nice dinner with friends and some good laughs!

Had a Blast Playing in the Snow!

The First snow of the season fell yesterday and it has made everything beautiful! I love to look at it through my window, where I can be nice and warm. My little ones share in my enthusiasm for warmth but the bigger ones couldn't wait to get out and play!

Giving Tree!

Our oldest two did the giving tree this year at the Mall for the first time. Our daughter thought it was so neat to get something for a girl about the same age that might not get to have a gift for Christmas. The little girl we shopped for wanted one of the Cranium games. My daughter and I went to three different stores looking for it and we did finally find it. My daughter really enjoyed bringing it back to the tree so that the Salvation Army could pass it along to the little girl we chose. My step son chose a boy about the same age who wanted a gift card from the Mall. I hope by allowing the kids to shop for others they can see the true meaning of Christmas and learn about the joys of giving!

I am so glad that in the midst of change my little ones can keep it fun. We have had the start of Home School and are one month into it. Still loving it! I am concerned about my daughter's energy level, we need to find a good outlet for her. We are all adjusting to my step-son moving in and starting High School. He seems to be liking it okay but with the normal kid answer of "It was okay". My little ones keep it fun and keep me on my toes. My oldest is so smart and and is so funny! She does love the camera! My little man is using his words so well. Especially Momma! He knows volume will get a better reaction! and My baby is my beautiful spoiled baby. I love them all and had to share. I am so Thankful for my family.
Psalm 107:1 "Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever."
I hope this Holiday Season is a blessing to you and your family!
