Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

A Christmas Sunday night

On Sunday before church we told the children that if everyone came home and worked hard to get the house cleaned we would all go for a fun Sunday evening officer Hamburgers, shopping and Christmas lights.

So after us all working super hard, we headed off to visit my Granna in the nursing home first off. It was so good to see her and let the children spend some time with her. After that we headed out for hamburgers! The kids all loved Kincades with its picnic style tables... They thought the burgers were good too. Next we went to Toys R Us (in the same parking lot) and let the girls buy their gifts for each other. They have been earning money to buy something for the other and had finally gotten enough. That was a lot of fun watching them get so excited picking for the other one!

Next stop was downtown Grapevine! All the children loved walking around seeing all the displays and dancing as a family to the synchronized music lights in the main square! Ben was totally fascinated by the polar bear display and communicated to me that he wanted his picture taken with them. So he hopped up there and proudly posed... It was precious! We were down there for nearly an hour and had the best time!

Last stop, cookies to eat in the car and finish out our ride through Town Square.... Yum!!

I LOVE this time of year!
