Sharing Christmas

This was our first time to do Operation Christmas Child. What a blessing this was!

Ashleigh and Logan found it hard to understand that there are children who may have never had crayons or hair ribbons before. That some children cant just run to Wal-mart for whatever they need.

Fred and I were amazed to learn a child can only enroll in Op Christmas Child once in their lifetime!! Once they recieve a shoebox, they cant enroll again. To think how many million shoeboxes go out....and there still arent enough.

So many children.

Monday's Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY ~ December 7th, 2009

Outside my window... a clear, cold night. No snow around this neck of the woods.

I am thinking...that the guy currently on Deal or No Deal really needs to TAKE THE DEAL and quit being greedy!

I am thankful for... three healthy rambunctious children

I am wearing... flannel jammies with snowmen on them

I am remembering... my Grandma Edie. Born 1920. Passed away two years ago yesterday.

I am finish and post this weeks menu plan.

I am currently reading... getting ready to start the new Karen Kingsbury "Shades of Blue"

I am see some snow soon!

On my mind... the windshield needing replaced on our suv before we can pass inspection.

Pondering these words... yada, yada, yada.

From the kitchen... hot cranberry apple cider

Around the house... baby is the cozy glow of our old-fashioned christmas tree.

One of my favorite things...Christmas songs sung by Dean, Frank, & Bing. Love!

From my picture journal...
