Clockwise ~ on the telescope (looking at the night sky with daddy), in the freezer (helping mommy make breakfast), searching in a bowl ( a small set of art magnets were found), and with gift wrap (preparing to wrap dance teacher gifts).
This week we did completed four of our charities for this season. We attended the Return to Bethlehem. It is a wonderful reenactment that we enjoy attending every year. There are beggars spread through out the walking tour and you add dollars to their baskets. All of the money goes to our local homeless shelter.
We also turned in a new book for children that each child had previously picked off of the library giving tree.
Lastly, we dropped off food at the large food bank collection tree at the mall.
The gingerbread houses at the Grove Park Inn. We love to go see the gingerbread house contest winners every year. This year was special because our son, Tim and his friends at the brain injured day program entered the contest with their own gingerbread house. They did not win, but their house was displayed in the inn. Below were some of our favorites.
