Kindness Advent – Day 15

Kindness Advent – Day 15

How is it already December 15th?  Craziness!!  Tonight, we headed over to the mall to spread a little kindness.  Now, I know it may sound crazy to some of you because I am a female, but I absolutely hate the mall…like I think it may be a level in hell.  But I have to admit…it actually wasn’t too bad tonight!;) […]

Kindness Advent – Day 14

Kindness Advent – Day 14

Today’s mission was to buy someone a meal.  Since we were going to be at the church most of the day, we decided we’d buy the band dinner.  These guys & gals arrive by 1:00 on Saturday afternoons for rehearsal & don’t finish until 6:00 & then head back over on Sunday mornings from 8:30 ’til 1:00.  We have a […]

Kindness Advent – Day 13

Sometimes things don’t go as planned & you’ve just gotta roll with the punches…or cry & then roll with the punches!;)  Today was supposed to be my Christmas shopping day but Aubrey ended up having to work.  When he got home, he sent me out the door & would not take no for an answer.  It’s really hard for me […]

Kindness Advent – Day 12

Last year, on the day we were planning to visit the fire station, we just could not get our baking act together.  So naturally, I told Aubrey to pull through Chick-fil-A.  He looked at me like I had lost my mind but knew better than to question a woman who was 9 months pregnant!;)  I personally think it was a […]

Kindness Advent – Day 11

We are huge fans of this organization & the awesome work they are doing all over the world.  Our family sponsors a 2 year old little girl named Kimberly from Honduras…we actually just got the sweetest Christmas footprint craft in the mail from her yesterday!:) Every year, World Vision creates a gift catalog with options to donate animals, school supplies, […]

Kindness Advent – Days 9 & 10

Kindness Advent – Days 9 & 10

Yesterday was a busy day!  We sorted & delivered the rest of the produce to Frisco Family Services…what a great place! Last night we had our staff Christmas party, so the kids went over to the church for a little craft/movie time (aka childcare!;)  If you know my Grady, you know he’s a shy guy & there was a time […]

Kindness Advent – Day 8

Kindness Advent – Day 8

Our plans changed today after Aubrey ventured out to pick up our produce.  We are part of an organic co-op called Urban Acres & they are fantastic!  We love their story, what they’re doing & of course the super yummy fruits & veggies! It’s important to note that somehow we got dubbed the family who comes at the end of pick-up and […]

Kindness Advent – Days 6 & 7

Thank you all so much for your kind words & prayers…we are definitely feeling them over here!!  Everyone slept through the night & the boys are back to their wild & crazy selves!;)  So far, Aubrey and Kaylor are in the clear & we’re keeping our fingers crossed! The boys realized pretty quickly this morning that we didn’t do our […]

Day 6 – Wave The White Flag

Day 6 – Wave The White Flag

The ice just kept on fallin’ last night.  Believe me, I know…I was up for most of it.  Not only did the ice storm strike our house, so did the tummy bug!:(  I was the first victim & was up until about 1:30.  Jett came down around 2:00 & said he felt like he was gonna “frow up” & that […]

Kindness Advent – Day 5

Kindness Advent – Day 5

  Let’s be honest…this is not what I wanted to do today!  The temperature dropped like 50 degrees over night (that has to be some kind of record) & by 3:00, the freezing rain was comin’ down!  I was already trying to figure out how we could switch things around & avoid getting back out in this weather.  We had […]
