One of my Christmas letters ...

I've written 3 Christmas letters, and Steve still hasn't chosen one to mail to our family and friends.  But I wanted to share this fun one that I wrote.  You'll have to excuse the fact that changing my kids names to their initials throws the rhythm off a bit.

“A few of our favorite things”

Gardens and pumpkins and little barn kittens
Farm dogs and hay bales and colorful chickens
Family gatherings and preschoolers that sing
These are a few of our favorite things

4-H and homeschool group, church and good friends
Library visits and family movies
Toddlers that climb up as if they had wings
These are a few of our favorite things

Girls on the 4-wheeler, boys on the tractor
Parents that love them and hope for more of them
Children who giggle with their imaginings
These are a few of our favorite things

When the storm blows, when the wind howls
When we're feeling sad
We simply remember our favorite things
And then we don't feel so bad

Steve loves his garden and family homestead
April likes writing and homeschooling children
Enjoying time with their family
Their kids are a few of their favorite things.

A--loves reading, her guitar and art
R-- loves being with family and friends
They both love computers and music, too
These are a few of their favorite things.

C-- loves books, paper dolls and barbies
J-- loves legos, Star Wars and biking
Exploring outdoors every chance that they can
These are a few of their favorite things.

M-- likes movies and playing with siblings
L-- loves puzzles, Dora, Max & Ruby
They like to play and pester each other
These are a few of their favorite things.

G-- loves kittens, cats, dogs, and books
He loves his Daddy and his siblings, too
He thinks he's big and can do anything
These are a few of his favorite things.

When the storm blows, when the wind howls
When we're feeling sad
We simply thank God for each of these blessings
And then we don't feel so bad


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!



Trusting In Him,
April
