December is Here!!

This year the month of November and Thanksgiving has kicked off December and the Christmas season with such a great attitude for me. We have so much to be thankful for and we have loved finding new and special ways to serve, bless and encourage others!

There are so many things I want to include for our family and do to celebrate this season. There is Advent, Elf on the Shelf, Serving Opportunities, etc… I’m still figuring it all out, and how it can all work together.

Our {girl} Elf, Miss Lola,Β  was waiting for us when we returned home from Thanksgiving in Yuma! She brought winter PJs and a special book about what Christmas is about… Jesus’s birth!

Silas wanted nothing to do with Lola, {the plushie version}… Isaac on the other hand LOVES her and thinks she is all his.

Lola has been hanging around the house surprising the kids every morning finding new things around to do around here! We like celebrating birthdays all month-long around here, so of course Jesus’s birthday is no different! She kicked off December 1stΒ  by flying across the room! Instead of talking reporting Santa, in our house, Miss Lola keeps an eye out on how well the boys are behaving and tells mama & papa. She also suggests ways that we can serve others to help celebrate Jesus’ birthday! Saturday we collected some of Mama, Silas & Isaac’s clothes, and took them to our Church’s donation bin that supports the OC Rescue Mission!

It was a fantastic first few days of December! I can’t wait for the rest of the month!!!!
