Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Christmas Countdown 5 & 6

Happy Sinterklass day!  We are not Dutch, but their tradition of giving gifts on December 6th is fun, so B adopted it.  Perhaps I will research a similar holiday that actually has to do with our heritage for next year.  B likes to get the kids their Sinterklass gifts.  He even got me a gift, too!
F got wooden swords to start his knight training.
CB's got a drawing activity. Little A got a pillow pet.
Big A got a beautiful four leaf clover necklace.
Our activity, yesterday, was making cookies.  I actually found an activity that F wanted to participate in!  
He really enjoyed putting the sprinkles on the sugar cookies.  We ended up with some very blue and sugary cookies.  
Let the countdown continue!


  1. How lovely! You are not big A. You are A.
    The swords look very forest-y!
    Cadence is so artsy. Love that!
    Pillow Pet. Nice!
    What about Tiny a?
    Cookies all around! Go Finn!

  2. Nothing for Tiny a, because he already has a lot of toys.:)
