Pathway Of Lights 2009

Well, I've spent this past week being Mary to a 12 yr. old Jesus! My scene took place in the market. Joseph and I accidentally left Jesus behind in Bethlehem! We didn't realize we had left our son behind until we had traveled for a day! I was one frantic MOM!!! We found Jesus in the temple with priests.....teaching!!! We found him in his Father's house doing his Father's business! Jesus was a gifted and special child! These sweet girls sold herbs all week!
The kiddos had a blast!
It took everyone to make this project happen! There was no small part!

I met new friends.....
and welcomed back old POL friends!!!
I got to play with my "real" 12 yr. old son!
Look...he looks taller than me! Yikes!
We pretended!
Hannah worked on this basket weaving skills all week!

I got to work with these crazy priests and men in the temple! They were not a very good influence on Jesus! I looked forward to a new prank each time we did it!
Gotta love those crazy guys!
Hanging out by the fire!!
It was really cold some nights!!!
The warm fires were nice!
Nice, but a little smokey!
I'm glad I got to run around screaming for Jesus instead of balancing a basket on my head!
Everyone worked so hard!
Shelby came prepared with her hot chocolate every night!
We really had a good time.....
telling the story of Jesus from his birth to his resurrection!
Thanks to everyone who supported and helped with Pathway of Lights 2009!
Thank you for walking the path with us!!!
It's a HUGE project! It's very time consuming!!! It's a HUGE commitment!!! You get to play in all kinds of weather.....sleet, snow, rain and fog!!!! It doesn't really matter if you are tired and don't feel good!!!!
The show must go on!!!!
What does matter.........
Knowing I have 55 new brothers and sisters in Christ because of a wonderful vision!!!!!
That makes all of the hard work worth it!!!
God bless!!!!!

It's beginning to look a LOT like Christmas.....

Wow...what a busy weekend!
The boys got their Christmas trees lit and decorated!
On one side of the family our new tradition is to exchange ornaments with our cousins instead of presents! My boys love getting their ornaments out and they have quite the collection. We had to buy my little guy a bigger tree this year! He was so proud!

We went to our first gingerbread house making party!
It was so fun!
Thanks Donna and Rikki for making our party so special!
They were made out of school milk cartons, icing, graham crackers and lots of yummy candy!
I asked my oldest if he thought he was too old....he said, "Heck NO! I'm not too old for candy!"
(You never know!)
I think we are all kids at heart deep down!
Ty has the right idea!!!
Aren't they adorable???

Silly willies!!!!
Cara's gingerbread house was the "SHOW" house!!!
It rocked!!!
It was soooo cute!!!
We also went to our annual town Christmas parade and it was COLD!!!
(Yes, I'm married, but my husband seems to always have to work on special days! Thanks hubby for working so hard for us!)
Tis the season to be JOLLY!!!!
Gearing up for a CRAZY week!!!
If you are local, don't forget to call FBC and make your reservations to walk down the Pathway Of Lights! I promise it will be a treat and your heart will be blessed!!!!
