I'll keep this short and sweet because we are prepping for Santa to visit very soon. :)
Our church held five Christmas Eve services over the last two days. They were anticipating large attendance today so we volunteered to help greet and collect offering at a service this afternoon and then attend the last Christmas Eve service with our family. It was a beautiful service and, wow, it was so packed! Every seat in the house (literally) was taken and there was standing room only. We spent the evening at the in laws celebrating Christmas and the kiddos were spoiled rotten!
My uber creative husband was tasked with finding a gift that was "long, fat, and hard to wrap" for his family's rob your neighbor gift exchange. He came up with this candy cane idea all on his own! It had to be within a certain budget so he bought five Arbor Mist bottles and made this candy cane. Pretty creative, right?
For today's kindness we took two small gifts to the children's ministry. I am sure my kids have eaten, thrown, broken, etc some of the toys in the childcare rooms so we'll hopefully replenish some as we go. It's something that we want to continue throughout the year as a thank you for putting up with our kids. :)
Ok, that's all.
