Weekly Wrap Up–Christmas Week

First I want to back up to Saturday (12/21) and say that the Christmas VBS was a huge success!  We had 24 kids show up and we had a blast.   My girls lead the music time and we had live skits, a few pretaped skits and lots of crafts followed by a birthday party for Jesus.   Each child went home with a bag of handmade crafts, a Christmas present and knowledge of the Christmas story.  We even had two who prayed to receive salvation!!   Woot!

The rest of  the weekend was a blur of baking and candy making.  We made our typical fudge, peanut butter balls, sugar cookies, gingerbread, no-bakes, chocolate chip, mint chocolate chip,white chocolate macadamia and peanut butter kisses.   Monday Tom and the girls went out on their “elfing” expedition around town while I cleaned the house.

We went to a candle light service, a Christmas cantata, Christmas Eve with the in-laws and Christmas day with my family.  I’m e.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d.    We’ve also spent a lot of time playing with new games, check them out here!   I downloaded all of my 2013 photos off my computer before writing this post, but you can pop over to my other blog,  S.A.H.M. I Am! and see a few glimpses into our week.
