Reading the bible in a year...

So, if you all remember, Little Man was trying to do this. Here is the post about it.Read old post here!
My heart is swelling because as I sit here almost a year later, he is almost there. He will be there and finished by Dec 31st. Something about this Little Man, all he does is set his mind to something and watch out! It's been amazing to watch and be a part of this.
I can say that this type of bible was perfect and would make a great gift for those kids in your life. There is a less challenging one as well if I am recalling correctly.
The One Year Bible for Kids, Challenge Edition
He's enjoyed it and I've enjoyed our discussions. So, I asked what he will do when he's done. Read it again of course. :) But, I think he is hoping for a new devotional this year. Be still my heart!

Christmas Cards and Activities...

So, I've been sending them out in stages this year. I think that the last of them will go out this week. I had good intentions of them all going out at the same time. However, throw some sickness in there and well, they get put aside while I tend to my sick kid. I am almost done getting them all out and crossed off my list. I have a few that I will still deliver by hand, but other than that, I think the last of them will be out by the end of the week. Yeah! How about all of you?
Speaking of Christmas, I know I usually have activities for you all. So, let's see if I can round up a list of ideas for you.

Cookies/ Sweets for you to try:
Hershey website photo
Hershey Oatmeal Toffee Cookies I have to make these every year now. I admit, they are yummy!
Cake Batter Pudding Cookies- I am so trying these this year!
Brownie Candy Cups- again a YUM.
Hershey Symphony Brownies
Peanut Butter Cheese Ball - Trying this this year.
I'll leave it at that. I remember back in the day when I piped an entire Christmas Tree cake. One time people, one time!
Might be fun to pipe some cookies again--this time with Little Man. hmmm...I'll think on that.

I'll get back to you all with Craft Ideas...But, really just remember to...make time for some good Family memories! :)

Secret Santa & RACKs in a BIG way!

Because we can all use GOOD NEWS! :) Click to enjoy: RACKs taken to a BIG level.

Today, started our Christmas RACKs. While they are so small compared to this, I can't even begin to describe how thrilled Little Man was to be the first one to deliver the RACKs yesterday.

We are all excited. Hope your RACKs are filling your hearts with pure joy as well.
