Holiday shopping

Just a reminder as you are doing that online holiday shopping, don't forget about Ebates!

See my post about it here

Just this week, I ordered some photo calendars for Christmas gifts...and I got 8% back through Ebates. And even better, they have a promotion going on right now that if you spend $10 they will give you a $10 bonus. Sweet!!

So if you haven't already, check it out!

Beautiful moments

One of the young men from our church recently left to go to Indonesia as a missionary. He was a part of our small group and we spent some time praying over him before he left. He was very involved with our children's ministry while he was here, so we had the kids pray over him at the end. So sweet!!

The joy of hand-me-downs

We love hand-me-downs at our house.

Goodness, Tanner wouldn't be clothed most of the time if we didn't!

Well, this week we received the best hand-me-down to least according to Tanner!

It didn't matter that there was a large rip in the back:

It was the highlight of his day...and he wore it ALL DAY LONG! In fact, there were tears when we had to take it off for nap time.

House Projects...and Bread Disaster

We had one of those rare Saturdays where nothing was planned and we didn't have to be anywhere. It was a nice change!

Tanner and Chris worked on some projects outside:

I worked on some craft projects and attempted to make cinnamon, raisin bread in my bread machine:

And no, that isn't the lump of dough. That was the finished product!

I am happy to report my crafting turned out much better.

My little cowboy

We had our annual church Chili Supper last night. Our little man was a cowboy, and an awfully cute one I might add!
