This is the final installment of 2012's Project 365. Its definitely been a time-consuming labor of love, but I'm so very thankful to have all of this documented.
Most of what's here is the every day...nothing that would make headlines any where....but to me its a story of God's love and faithfulness and of our children growing into beautiful people, one average day at a time.
And my heart's prayer is that some of this everyday-ness also brings glory to God. I want my life to be all about His glory.
And now for Week 52. It was as low-key as we could make it, since more of us were sick than were not. But we also really enjoyed the fact that it was Christmas and got in tons of family time. I LOVE it when the kids are off of school!
No picture, therefore I have no idea what happened. :)
Lots of little birdies waiting patiently for their stockings. I think we are missing just two cousins from this picture.
Lazy morning of breakfast, games and mostly chatting around the woodstove. Sad to see all the family go.
Too cool for school! My nephew Nathanael's hockey team got to play at the Civic Center then they stayed for the big boys game. They invited Z to come along and when he got home he declared hockey to be his favorite sport and with much excitement told me there were "so many fights!".
Our foster care agency hosted a bowling party so the three older kids and I went. See? I have my bowling shoes on...I want it to be duly noted what a FUN mom I am. :)
We watched the second half of the full length version of The Sound of Music. Its definitely noteworthy when we all sit down to watch a movie together. I have to say, it IS nice to get all snuggled together.
After church Shaun took a few kids to a UCONN basketball game and I hung out at my sister's house. It was so pretty with the fire and a foot of snow coming down outside her cathedral-sized windows.
And driving home we were so thankful for the four new tires on our all-wheel drive vehicle.
