With January half over, it's high time that I finally caught up with December happenings. Here are twelve favorite events in honor of the twelve days of Christmas.
Twelve. Our church Christmas breakfast where Brooklyn and Talia participated in the Nativity. Talia displayed her excellent crook-twirling skills as a shepherd while Brooklyn made a sweet Mary.
Eleven. A Day with Santa at the Tonaquint Nature Center.
Ten. Shortly before Christmas, we celebrated the open house for a pilot project of highly-efficient affordable homes with energy improvements that Jason helped initiate. Grown-ups are excited that the homes use half as much energy as your average home. Kids like Talia are excited to have a place where they can run.
Nine. Brooklyn's Daisy Troop made posters showing ways they can take care of themselves and the world around them. Brooklyn designed an interactive poster where we could remove trash from the dolphin's ocean home by doing good deeds for others.
Here's wishing you all a merry, merry Christmas!
