Catching Up

The last couple of weeks have been a little crazy. I haven't really had the time to post much. (Plus, blogger has been annoying me by not publishing my post the way I format it, grrr.) So here is a quick update!!

Thanksgiving was spent with my side of the family. My grandma and her hubby, Dave, drove up from TN. The kids LOVED seeing Little Grandma and Papa Dave. It was a laid back Thanksgiving day, but we did get a chance to take some photos for our Christmas card.

My cute grandma.

We also cut down a Christmas tree from our yard. It was quite ugly and the kids cried. A couple of children had to spend some time in their rooms over the whole ordeal, but all is well that ends well.

We started the tradition of family devotions during the advent season. One of our children had an attitude at the beginning. (I am not mentioning names, justing posting a picture, haha). What we really want is for our children to focus on Jesus this season as the light of the world. We live in such a dark and sinful place, and He is our hope. This is our desire for everyone.

LOL at the Christmas tree comment, and the fact that it made some of the kids cry! That'll be one for the scrapbooks!

great idea to start family devos at this time of year. i wish i had thought of that too! are you using any particular devotional or just reading scripture?

The devotions are hit and miss, but the kids seem to be taking something away from them. I actually just googled advent devotions and found one I liked and printed it off.
