Sinterklaas Party 2014

We had our annual Sinterklaas party last night and boy am I tired this morning!  It was a  lot of fun…but a lot of work!  We celebrate Sinterklaas day because my oldest son served a mission for the church in the Netherlands.  I have always loved the idea of welcoming in the Christmas Season with Santa!  We then celebrate the spiritual side of Christmas on Christmas Eve.Santa Claus Continue reading


Secret Service Saturday

I think that it is time once again to do our Secret Service Saturday!

Is there something that you could do for someone else today?  It could be something as simple as a smile or friendly wave.  It could be visiting someone who might need you today, or it could be something big like helping someone with their yard or their house work!  I don’t know about you, but I always feel better about me when I think of others!  Just think about all the good that we can do today if each of us does just one simple act of service or kindness…it will be amazing!

Have a great day today serving someone else!

Love Ya!

Don’t you love my little blanket models?  My granddaughter is behind the blanket holding it up for me!
