Last Friday we had a little  well 8 inches I think of snow come our way. But my kids just couldnt wait to get out in it and play. So they went out while it was coming down and had so much fun, they didnt last long out there too cold they said. I love to watch the snow fall, I think it is just so pretty!

Christmas Party!

So as I told you we went to the assisted living home and had a great time there with the ladies. One of the dear ladies was in the hospital, one wasnt feeling to good (she did come eat with us but didnt feel like doing anything else) and one of the other ladies doesnt come out of her room. But one thing that really stuck out to me about these ladies was they told me several times you didnt have to bring all this you could have just come. They didnt care about the gifts, party or crafts, All they wanted was a visit from us. And yet they would ask the kids what they wanted for Christmas and offered to help with the party. This day was for them, we wanted to do for them and in turn they still wanted to help us. Such a blessing to spend some time with them! So as promised some pictures from our day!

Christmas Project

Our homeschool group that we are a part of decided this year we would do for others at Christmas. We thought this would be a great lesson for the kids to do for others and take some of the focus off of getting gifts.

We are going to a home (not a nursing home but a home with ladies who cant stay by themselves) and are taking some Christmas fun to them for a while. We are heading there tomorrow and we are all looking forward to it. We are fixing baskets for each lady and each child is making a card for them to go into the baskets as well.

I thought instead of doing our Christmas party with the kids before we went, what about taking the Christmas party to the ladies and include them. Everyone thought this would be a great idea. I think this will be something great to include them in. We also are going to do 2 crafts with them and this will be something not only the ladies would do but also the kids with them.

So check back on Friday for pictures of our Christmas fun!
