My oh my - it's already Christmas time! This year has surely flown by.
Many of you know we are back at our "home" church - and were so blessed to make it back in time for our kiddos to help in the Christmas Play. Chloe was an angel, Sam was a Sheep, and Jax was a Camel. Annie was Jr. Director and Maddie ran the lights. The play went off without a hitch and everyone had a great time. Afterwards, one mom came up to me and said that when Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, and Sam went up to the manger - she leaned over and asked her husband what kind of animal Sam was. The husband replied that he thought he might be a Panda. (hilarious!) To which I replied - since "Joseph" was from Vietnam - maybe so! Leave it to our crew to inspire an Asian Nativity right here in the Heartland.
As for the rest of the Month - we've been completely blown away again this year with Sheet sales through Lori's Linens. I want to be careful to give thanks to God for blessing our little business - because it certainly is not due to our superb salesmanship. It's a wonderful opportunity to be able to tell our adoption story over and over and to play a small role in helping other families bring their little ones home. By the end of December - we'll be close to the hitting the mark for 900 sets sold!
Thanks to all our friends and family for all your support this year. It's been a CrAzY year (and that's putting it mildly :-)
