Kindness Advent – Day 23

Kindness Advent – Day 23

Tonight after bath time, we got in our Christmas jammies & headed out to spread some kindness. We left a goody bag at the ol’ Redbox with some popcorn, candy & a few bucks for the next renter. This picture cracks me up! I was standing out in the rain, (can you say yucky day!) trying to get everyone to look at […]

Kindness Advent – Day 22

This morning, we headed over to the library & hid some handmade bookmarks in random books. This is the first time we’ve done this kindness mission and it was so easy & fun…the kids loved it!! This picture cracks me up! Just keepin’ it real over here, folks! How stinkin’ sweet is this? These kids have a serious love for books […]

Kindness Advent – Day 21

The kids are really missing Daddy right now because he’s been working such long days over at the house. This morning we slept in, made chocolate chip pancakes & caught up on some much needed cuddles…just what the doctor ordered! Grady is getting so big but moments like this remind me that he’s still our baby! At lunch, I told the […]

Kindness Advent – Day 20

Kindness Advent – Day 20

Our kindness mission today was to buy someone’s lunch & we thought who better than Daddy & all of the hard workers up at the house? This week has been pretty lonely with lots of unexpected, under the house, (can’t see any progress) kind of work. But today was exciting!! Windows are going in, the garage doors went in & all […]

Kindness Advent – Days 17 & 18

Yesterday, I fell on a giant rock under our house & bruised my tailbone. Yes…you read that right! How can one be so clumsy? This is the culprit to my hiney mishap… Yep…it was as painful as it looks! A big shout out to everyone who offered tips & sympathy! I was thinking this morning, as I was icing my […]

Kindness Advent – Day 16

Kindness Advent – Day 16

We had a change of plans for today. We were supposed to go watch my friend Danielle’s girls so she could have a morning out before her 4th baby was scheduled to arrive on Thursday. I met Danielle & her mom at a clothing store right after we moved to town. It turned out she attends The Church at Indian Lake…small world! She has […]

Kindness Advent – Day 15

Tonight, we hit up the local dollar store to collect some items for the homeless. Our church will be heading downtown Christmas morning to deliver the goods & we’re so excited to join them with our crew! You can always count on Jettaroo for a crazy pose…that kid marches to his own beat!;) They chose this jacket because it had a camo hoodie & “everyone […]

Kindness Advent – Day 14

Kindness Advent – Day 14

Tonight, we rode around & looked at Christmas lights. We’ve been so busy that we haven’t done anything festive really, so it was nice & much needed family time! On our way out, we pulled through Starbucks & paid it forward to the car behind us. This was a win/win because we showed a little kindness & also got a […]

Kindness Advent – Day 12

Kindness Advent – Day 12

This afternoon, we baked cookies for my mom’s neighbor, Ms. Edna. Ms. Edna has lived across the street for as long as I can remember. She lost her husband earlier this year & I know it will be a tough holiday for her. She loves watching the kids play & it thrilled her when we knocked on the door with warm goodies […]

Kindness Advent – Day 11

Kindness Advent – Day 11

When we were planning our advent calendar, we knew we would be in the middle of renovating the house. We also knew that we were on a limited budget, so we thought, “Why not make some gifts and send them to some special people?” After all, we do have a small business called Song and Story Millworks, right? Back in the […]
