Adam got Vikings/Falcons tickets at the new stadium from work, so we were very excited to go see the new stadium and cheer on the winning purple team! 12/3/17
We couldn’t afford the Santa at the outlet mall this year since they revamped it so luckily we got to go to the Gibson Co. who the owners sing at Browns Bridge Church and Adam knows them from when he volunteers, so we brought all the sqwearts and cousins to their venue and had some priceless pictures 🙂
Grace asked for a locket, a bike and a surprise…
Lila asked for a fairy house with 4 fairies so there would be one for everyone in the family to play with… because she is so super sweet, and then she asked for candy and a locket, but that’s because she heard Grace but she didn’t want a locket, so we edited our list to Santa via email to just a necklace…
Asher asked for a bike and that’s it. 🙂
Then once we brought all the kids back home, we decided that Moby and Dixie deserved to meet Santa too, so we brought them to Ruckers for their pictures with Santa 🙂
Nothing like Get Air again for our neighbor, Wesley’s, birthday party with Asher and Summer getting to participate in all the bouncy fun…and Mommy getting to have a birthday dinner night with Wesley’s mom, Torri, for her birthday with the lady neighbors… to see Bad Mom’s Christmas
Before the party, we drove to Dahlonega, GA Chick-Fil-A to go grab some Fish Christmas Wishes… to give our dining room set to a couple that needs a table and chairs, and another single mom of 5 kiddos who needs a place to live… so between us and my brother and sister-in-law we were able to afford her a down payment for renting a house for her family… just wanted the sqwearts to be a part of the giving that is the reason for the season and giving that is part of being a good Samaritan, a good neighbor, a good person… to be the person that Jesus was… to try to be more like Jesus every single day.
Mommy got to visit all the sqwearts at their schools for the their Christmas parties… the Montessoru school did a singing recital kind of thing which was a joy to watch…
Then I joined Daddy at his company’s Christmas party – a night out with great food and drinks we didn’t have to pay for…. means a great time! Oh, and we got to dance, which we haven’t gotten to do in forever! 12/17/17
The sqwearts (except Summer) started gymnastics class – Lila and Asher in the little kids class and Grace in the beginner’s class for a while before she gets moved up to the next level…hopefully in the new year.
12/10/17 Gainesville, GA got like 6 inches of snow!! It was awesome… so much snow… luckily I bought the sleds at the end of the season last year so we had them ready to go! We made a family of snowmen and went sledding with neighbors at the Elementary school down the street… we ate snow slushies, we had warm chocolate milk, the sqwearts ate a lot of snow on the ground, made snow angels, and had plenty of snowball fights…. we finished Grace’s list of things to do in the snow 🙂
Daddy putting together his old GIJoe’s for the kids to play with… and eventually they destroyed… so we had to put them away until Asher gets a little older… and some pics of the kids watching Christmas movies and getting a tree at our local Kinsey Family Farm… Daddy cutting one down again…he loved it, I swear 🙂
Then I wore my vest that Grace made for me to my small group night to show it off… and having all the kids fit in our tub, makes it for a wild bath time, but easy and water-efficient 🙂
