A Bit of Everything

Fuji Sei Boen
We have wanted to visit a Children's Home since we arrived, but have repeatedly hit road blocks. We heard you usually do not get to play with children if you do get a visit arranged. Every year the chapel buys gifts and takes them up. Club Beyond arranged for the youth, and families which wanted to, could drive up to deliver.  We were sad we couldn't commit with Michael's surgery. However, Arielle and Nolan were able to go. They were disappointed they were not allowed to interact with children. Ah well.

We had a lazy day at home. Picking up the kids on base provided the opportunity for me to run through the commissary and post office.

Arielle, Nolan and I went for a walk. We're all missing the older Gherkins this year.

Michael  bet the kids  he could move the coin below without touching the match....

And he did....though the perspective of the photo makes it hard to really see...the match levitated and he moved the coin. ::snort::

We enjoyed a rousing round of "Don't You Forget It." I learned to play it safe from the rest of the family, and this time I WON!

We continued to brainstorm about our Family Verse/Vision  for 2013.

Arielle  enjoyed popcorn for the first time in 3 years.....we all helped her celebrate.

Michael read a chapter of the fifth book in the Cooper Kid series while the rest of us snacked on popcorn. He asked me to read chapter two so he could snack too. I read all but the last two pages and could tell I was in danger of sliding into "sleep reading."  He took over.

Arielle must be sleep listening....

I'm going to go join the others in watching Sheerluck  Holmes - Veggie Tales.

Michael is doing better each day.

All our snow melted today...we're praying for a White Christmas.

Choosing Joy!
