12 Days to Christmas

Today our focus was once again on how we can serve others this Christmas season. We adopted a family for Christmas who has a 4 month old baby. Currently, they are living in a homeless shelter and had so many needs for their baby girl. We went out today and bought lots of diapers, wipes, warm clothing, blankets and a few toys. The kids and I had so much fun picking everything out and then getting to wrap it all up. I am hoping by doing these projects together the kids are truly learning the true meaning of Christmas is giving and not receiving.
Tonight we lit the third candle of Advent. Last night we were home too late so we held over our celebration to this evening. Ava Mae lit the candle which represents "Love" and then we all sang "Silent Night".
