Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!!!!  We are filled to the brim with blessings!  This year we celebrated Christmas with family for the first time since 2008.

It was great being able to attend the Christmas Eve service at our church and the community service I grew up attending late at night – both being candlelight services.  My heart is overflowing!

We were secretly hoping for a white Christmas, not because we like cold weather, but because the boys really want to see snow. We got the best compromise – a heavy frost to make things look white, but not dangerous as people are out and about.

David is so creative and came up with an Amazing Race type challenge for the boys for Christmas presents.  It took over an hour and was great!  They had ten clues to figure out where their next challenge and clue was hidden.  Each challenge was wrapped and once they completed it, they received their next clue.  Their challenges were to put a puzzle together, blow a bubble with gum, build and fly a paper airplane, drink a full glass of water, solve mind puzzles and more.  It was fun watching them trying to figure out the clues and complete the challenge.  Their final clue led them to their Christmas present.

    This reminds me of Easter when I was young. My sister and I had to find plastic eggs with clues inside until we found our Easter basket. We had a very clever Easter bunny. A lot of fun on any holiday. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
