In the craziness of the holidays I have not been writing much. I took a new approach to Christmas this year, before I always wanted to have my husband help with the tree and decorations. He would help but he didnt like it. This year I didn’t insist that he help and it helped pur household immensely! TB helped alot while LlP was at school, he decided that they needed a tree in their room this year.

We also started an amazing new traditon called “The Shepherd’s Treasure”. It is a Christian version of Elf on the Shelf. Everday the Shepherd (the boys named ours Asteroid) travels around your house sharing Bible verses and lessonsĀ  on his quest to find the baby Jesus.
