Wishing You A Merry Christmas!

I'm back from the ER...Thank God for surgical glue! Landen split his head open and would of needed a few staples but the glue worked wonders. Anyone know where I can order that stuff? I could use that alot around this house and it would save me trips to the ER. LOL!

On a side note I signed in to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a loving family time.

I also wanted to share a little note my mom wrote:

I feel the Lord would like us to remember about why we celebrate this season. Over 2,000 years ago there was an announcement made to mankind. That announcement was one of "Good News" The angels split the sky and proclaimed that "Behold!" they were bringing tidings of great joy. I don't know about you, but I am sure we all could use some good news about now. This year has been one unlike any we've experienced in a long time. One trouble upon another is the norm these days. We have heard of wars, rumors of wars, starvation, earthquakes, violence in the streets, world wide economic failures. These are just to name a few. Personal trials in many lives have been heartbreaking. Many have lost a job, lost a home, or maybe the worst loss of all, the loss of a loved one. Through it all one thing that has and will never change is God's love for us. He is still announcing to us the greatest message the world has ever heard that God so loved the world(or as I like to do, insert your own name)that He sent His only Son to earth to be our Savior. He is what Christmas is all about whether the world gets it or not.
God does bring us great joy and gives us many things to be thankful for. Randy and I are thankful for 3 new grand babies born this year. We now have 5 grandsons ages 9,3,18mo,6mo,and 5 days. 4 granddaughters ages 7,6,20mo and 5mo. We cannot be more blessed. In many ways life can be overwhelming, but one thing is for sure, there is a God who loves us and cares very much about all that we are going through. In this day and age we are all aware of the term "Bail Out", and everyone is looking for one.
Remember one thing that the Creator of the Universe stepped out of the Heaven and came to earth and provided the most costly "Bail Out" of all time. All the money in the world could not have bailed us out of our mess. We were lost and without hope. The price of our salvation was costly to Jesus. He longs for us to accept the greatest gift one could ever receive, His love! We pray you have a blessed Christmas as you reflect on all He has done for you and all that He longs to.

See you after Christmas and knowing me be prepared for picture overload! :)

More Than U Want To Know:
Surgical glue or fibrin glue is a byproduct of human blood plasma. So simply purchase yourself a pherisus machine and some lab supplies, open a vein and go to work! There’s nothing better than homemade glue to keep the kiddies stuck together! PROJECT TIME! (haha)
Hope you & your family had a beautiful Christmas! xoxo
