God is SO Good

Today is the 2 year anniversary of the fire. God really does work everything for good to those that love Him, to those who are the called according to His purpose. As I sit here, in this wonderful house He provided, I know He does all things well. I have been very ok all day. I hope the rest of my family has felt the same way.
One thing that helped was a visit from a friend. She and her children came up to see Little Britches.
They brought some clothes for him, a turkey, a ham, and approx. 3 ricks of wood! We just never know what to expect from them.
They will be having another baby soon, too. I am looking forward to seeing her new one.
A mix-up at Farmerboy's school got straightened out. Now he can re-enroll for school once the administration office opens.
We started school back up last week. I'm not sure how great an idea that was, considering we may have more company this week. The children are all doing well. NaeNae finished McGuffey's Primer, and has read 9 lessons in McGuffey's 1st Reader.

Baby, it's cold outside!

Wow. It has decided to be December here. It's supposed to drop to 19 degrees (not counting the wind chill) tonight. The snow is falling, and tomorrow is the church Christmas party.
All the girls and I finished baking cookies and making cards for the church family today. It should be a lot of fun. Last year, we were very blessed with the music and testimonies people shared.
Our family read "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever"this last week. It really challenged our family's perspective on the Christmas story. I would encourage any Christian family to consider reading it around the holidays. Another book we have enjoyed is "The Bird's Christmas Carol" by Kate Wiggins(?).
The children will be starting school on Monday. Everyone seems to be looking forward to it, b/c they have run out of things to do:). Some folks are more excited than others.
I will also be easing back into my normal work routine. My biggest problem is not doing too much.
Right now I am trying to watch "It's a Wonderful Life" as I post. This is my favorite movie of all time, especially at Christmas time.
