December Photo Dump ~ sorry it's not a catchier title!

So much to say.... so hard to know how.  This fall has been so challenging for us.  But God has helped and is helping, day by day.  As we prepare to celebrate His coming I am filled with awe at who God is and how much He loves me.  Tomorrow is Little Man's birthday.  He will be 9.  NINE!!!  Wow.  Just sounds so old.  I know I will be taking a bunch of pics of his birthday, so in preparation for that, here is a photo dump from my camera of random pics from December...

What the end of a long day looks like...

December 1st tradition ~ beginning to count down to Christmas with our candy ribbons!  (I forgot to take the pic on December 1st, so about 9 hershey kisses were already off the ribbons.  Oh well!)

First time for daughter H to help us pick out our tree!  It was quite the decision, let me tell you.

Daughter G's gingerbread house decorating event, 2013 edition!

Little Man, leading us in family devotions.  Each of the children are taking turns during December.  He read to us what he had recently read in his own quiet time, about Joseph being sold into slavery by his brothers, but God using that for good when Joseph shepherded Egypt through a severe famine (Genesis).  He is reading better and better all the time!  So sweet.

Army/Navy football game!  For the first time, this year both my hubby and I had our faces painted for this important football watching event.  The girls had a LOT of fun painting us.  Not sure you can tell, but half my hubby's beard is blue, and the other half is yellow.

And it must have helped, because once again, Navy won!!
