As an accountant I was bored and unsatisfied with life - I had no purpose because I lacked a meaningful relationship with God.
Then I started to read my Bible and learn and grow. Soon I was blessed with a wonderful husband.
Now as a mother of three young kids I am never bored and my purpose is to raise them up to love and know God.
We have three great kids that we homeschool - Sam (10) and our twins Ben & Carlee (9). Certainly a recipe for chaos. Oh and did I mention the 3 dogs, 3-legged cat, and a bunch of chickens! Definitely a recipe for chaos.
Here are the photos of the kids helping me bake Christmas Cookies. It was quite a day and they had a blast!! Of course they all wanted to help, but it was difficult to get them all close enough to the bowl, so when Ben (of course it was Ben) started to climb on the counter to get closer, I thought "Well that works"! So I told them that they could sit up there only because we were making special Christmas cookies. They thought it was hilarous.
Here Ben is singing Jingle Bells LOL
Then I said it was time to lick out the bowl. Carlee got the beater and the boys got the bowl.
Not exactly what I had in mind when I said "lick out the bowl" but they took it literally! (of course it was Ben that thought of it first)
Sam tried a different variation!
And of course, whatever the boys do, Carlee has to try it too!
