It’s hard to believe that we are already half-way through December. Where does the time go? The girls have been busy doing the normal things like:

Eating Elephants…

We studied about elephants last week in home school, so DD had an elephant for breakfast..(one bite at a time.) She loved it. It’s been said that “Elephants never forget,” so the theme of our lessons was to “Never forget the wonderful things that God has done for us.” And of course, the celebration of Christmas is the best reminder of the wonderful gift of salvation that God gave to us, his son Jesus Christ.
Along with school, the girls have been...posing for a lot of pictures.

In front of our tree
In candy cane sweaters
Acting like silly sisters !!!!
Just looking pretty in two of their Christmas dresses

Playing with my 24 yr old hand-painted Nativity set…uh oh…
Showing off new clothes from Santa Sandra and…
Joining our play group for a visit with Santa at the mall.
It's precious times like these that I'd love to have the memory of an elephant...May we always remember the wonderful things that God has done for us.
