My Natural Mom's group that I go to once a month learning a new work out from home routine from Nikki. She kicked our rears!!! She's serious!!!
Our church, kids , friends and family have been collecting their change for about 6 months now. We collected about $1500 all in change and are using it to purchase special bikes for special needs children. We had enough $ to get four bikes!!! We will be presenting the bikes to them on Sunday morning at church. So if you were one of those people helping us collect change, THANK YOU!!! You have helped "Change a life with Change".
So last Thursday evening the guys in our lifeline group put the bikes together so that the kids could take them home and ride them immediately! HOW FUN!!
Just a sweet Dad and his girls picture, on the way out the door to something else...
Somewhere in the few moments of breath we have taken, we found about 2 hours to put up a tree. We have started a tradition that the children are to make our star for the top. So Kaytie Jo is helping put the glue on our star for Payton to glitter it.
We have always laughed at people's trees who have kids because either all of the nice, pretty ornaments are up top, or all the ornaments are clumped together because the kids helped decorate the tree. We have both...I totally get it now and I think it is sweet.
Look at me hunting for just the right place...like it is going to make a difference now that Eden and Payton have pulled most of them off and repositioned them. What a wierd photo of me, I look about 60 years old, the light was doing something wierd and made me look all wrinkly.
Payton playing the part of an angel in our Christmas story at church.
Eden Grace enjoying some chocolate cake at our dear friend Jeff's birthday party!
Three of the four girls born in five months with their daddy's, did you follow that? Clay & Eden, Jeff & Alexa, and Daniel & Bella.
Whew - there is so much more I want to share with you, but to be honest, I want to go to bed even more...so more later.
Good night and Grace and Peace,
