Lights and Lattes

It's one week until Christmas!!!! Can you believe it????

We have been decking the halls and jingling the bells! 

Friday I spent my morning at AR children's hospital helping with the annual toy drive.  I have several friends with children who are in the hospital right now so I know how much it must mean to not have to worry about shopping and still be able to give your kids a Christmas.  

Saturday morning we went to our town's Christmas parade.  I hate to admit that I have never been.  I love all things in my town but for some reason we have avoided the parade up until now.  

Harper got to ride on the float for her school.  

It was Peanuts themed and SO cute!!!! How great are those masks? 

It was a beautiful day! It was cold and windy but sunny.  It had been NASTY the two days before so I was thankful for a nice day! 

We staked out our spots and waited for the parade.  

Will Holden's buddy Caroline came by and gave him candy! 

We had a great time watching the parade! We will for sure have to go again next year! 

That afternoon we went to Fayetteville so we could have a night of Christmas fun! We ate at U S Pizza.  It's a favorite! 

The Fayetteville square is beautiful at Christmas.  It was SUPER crowded but we enjoyed walking around.  

Nothing says Christmas like a big lit up Razorback! :- )

I mean - JOY to the world! 

Then we headed to Steward Family Lights.  If you are in NWA - you don't want to miss this! It's a family owned display and it's INSANE.  You walk through it.  

There were SO many people I felt like we were at Disney during the busiest week of the year.  If you are local - go on a week night.  

I love spending time with my family during Christmas! 

So thankful for this family of mine! 

Sunday morning the girls and I were at church bright and early to serve coffee and treats for "Latte Moon".  (How clever is that?)  We took donations to raise money for the Lottie Moon Offering.  

This goes to raise money for Missions.  The girls LOVED working at it! 

We went to our usual Mexican place for lunch and two of our best friends showed up so we ended up letting the kids eat together and we ate together.  Will Holden and his Ladies! 

Sunday afternoon we set up the Lord's Supper.  Our church only does this twice a year and we are in charge of setting up and cleaning.  The girls LOVE helping with this too.  

We have four days left of school and we can't wait for our break!
