Zoo is one of my favorite games. Why? Because it is so entertaining!!!!

It comes in a tin box....

.....with magnetic animals

You place them around the the edges of the box to look like this....

And on the lid....

This entertains me for hours!!!

I just thought I share one of my favorite games!

Thursday's Thoughts

I thought this was interesting..............

That bread which you keep
belongs to the hungry;
that coat which you preserve in your wardrobe,
to the naked;
those shoes which are rotting in your possession,
to the shoeless;
that gold which you have hidden in the ground,
to the needy.
Wherefore, as often as you are able to help others, and refuse,
so often did you do them wrong. — Augustine

If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered" (Prov. 21:13)

Embarrassing Moment #12210

Ipod turns on While PASTOR IS PRAYING. I think it is someones phone and I ignore hoping music will start back up! Nope. Finally find it and turn it off and apologize to the people around me.

Hopefully, that will be the last...........

Christmas With the Families.......

After Christmas, we headed south to celebrate with the Family. Here are some highlights from the weekend!

My little cousin Sophie.

Nanny and Sophie bonding again.

fyi....Sophie is Nanny's great-gran.

Little Princess Sophie..

The night before we left, we all went out to eat @ a restaurant.

The kids side...


Noah and Jason gooffing off.

Which led to this.....

Thats a peanut.....
What was so funny, is that Noah didn't even know until we laughed so much. We finally told him because he was crying. Poor Noah.


What you see here is a true southern girl....eating butter plain, my friends....

She knows it too.

Mark, Cheryl, and Sophie, their grandchild.

Amy and Louis - Hailey, Noah and Sophie's parents.

We also visited with my mom's dad.

Then, the day we came back, we went to visit my Nanny.

Sorry, Grandma. I forgot to take a picture with you!

All in all, it was a good Christmas. I'm ready to get back into the daily grind, though.

Hope your Christmas was Wonderful and full of Joy celebrating the Saviour!

Christmas Day......A Little Bit Different

This Christmas was a bit different for our family. Our Venezuelan friend who works with the Hispanic ministry at our Church, V, does not have any friends in the States. Well, he does but no one to spend Christmas with. So, naturally my Dad invited him over for Christmas Lunch.

Then..... Some of our friends our in the process of moving and weren't going to be celebrating Christmas until they moved in their house. So, naturally, my Dad invited them.  (Btw, its not the friends I mentioned in this post.)

It might bother some people.....
....But, it didn't bother me at all!! 


Well, they may have not been blood-related family but, they were brothers and sisters in Christ. Sharing Jesus' birth with them is the same as sharing it with your family. (Okay, maybe not EXACTLY the same but close.)

Towards the end of the day we had a last minute photo shoot.

The Kids......

Our Family..........

The Whole Crew.....

Thus, concludes my first post of the new year!

Happy New Year, Everybody!!!!
