Merry Christmas!

What a day!
We actually had to cancel plans yesterday, because Kamy got a 24 hour bug.
It was very sad because we couldn't go to Christmas eve service and both her and Ta couldn't sing in the Christmas eve service!
This morning Jake had to worship lead the 9am service. So, we didn't put any presents out and didn't tell the kids it was Christmas. They woke up normal and we ate breakfast. Nana, got here and we pretended she was just hanging out!
When Jake was done, he called and headed home. My mom put the kids in the car and took them for a drive. Jake and I set up the million presents, literally. When we finished we called my mom. The kids came home and were shocked!
We yelled "Merry Christmas!"
Everyone was spoiled and it was a blast watching all of their faces.
Harp, enjoyed his first Christmas.
It was fun and I'll post pictures later!

Ready, set, go!
This is a busy weekend for us and probably the entire world!
Today, we had a family day. We took the kids ice skating, made puppy chow, built a fire, watched a veggie tales "St Nick" and drank hot chocolate! It was so much fun.
Tonight, Jacob and I will wrap all the kids presents.
Tomorrow, Jake has 3 services to lead. He's already spraying something "organic" into his throat to keep him from losing his voice!
The girls, will sing at the 4pm service. They practiced on Wednesday night and Kamy just yelled, I mean sang Jesus the whole time!
Then Sunday, we have a morning service and than Christmas!
I can't wait for the kids to open up presents! Its getting really fun and exciting around here with Ta and Kamy. Harp's still a little young!
Well....Merry Christmas!

5 days until....Chrismas

How is it 5 days until Christmas?
Tonight, I dyed macaroni noodles red and green for a little project that the girls will do tomorrow! Remember those noodle wreaths? If you were ever 5 you made a noodle wreath!
It keep us occupied for all of 15 minutes!
It's not as cold outside as it has been the last two years. I think were suppose to get snow on Friday. So, maybe it will be a white Christmas.
The girls are singing on Saturday night at church. The childrens choir will be singing "The Virgin Mary had a baby boy." They're pretty excited!
Harp finally has his first bottom tooth!!! It popped in about a week ago! We've waited for 11 months...and finally he has one!
I really can't wait for Christmas this year, with the kids.
Our real tree is as dead as a door nail because the heat makes it dry in the house. So, I'm a little nervous to even turn the lights on, on the tree.
It's so hard to tell your kids that there isn't a Santa clause, when the world revolves around a fake figure. But we do! We've been telling them the story of St Nick and that mommy and daddy are the one that buy the presents. It might sound outrageous to some, but we just feel like we are suppose go be honest. We want our children to know what the true meaning is and not some fake figure that has nothing to do with Christmas. It's hard for them to understand. We actually found a veggie tales on the story of St Nick!
Well....we have a crazy busy next few days, all for 15 minutes of openin presents on Sunday!
Merry Christmas!
