Holiday Giving...

For the past 3 years my sister and I take part in our church's adopt a family program for Christmas. It helps give families in need a basket of food and gifts for Christmas. This program hits home for us. There was a time when we were young that a program like this brought gifts to us. We were so grateful.

So we spent today shopping to fill the basket! Fruits, veggies, soups, cereals, chocolates and lots more!

This year we have a single mom with 3 kids. We are soo happy to be able to help this family. We filled the basket with lots of goodies. We put all the food at the bottom and placed the gifts and a gift card at the top.

This year is even more special because it's baby K's first year doing it with us.

I think he did a great job! :) Santa's little reindeer.
Love this little boy soo much!
P.S. How do you like my new blog makeover! Thanks

Decorations are slowly coming together

I've been decorating the house slowly each day. Having a newborn has us very busy these days.

Yesterday we finally went to get our tree. We got a Fraser Fir, 8 foot tree.
It smells amazing! This morning the smell of coffee and the tree together totally made my day!

We put the lights on it, now just need to find time to decorate!

Can't wait to add all the gifts for baby K under the tree ;)

Speaking of giving. My sister and I are going on our 3rd annual adopt a family for Christmas at our church. We have a family of 4 this year and we are excited to put together a basket full of gifts!
