Fellowship with this group is one of the sweetest things I have known this side of heaven. I have welcomed all these children into the world, watched most of them learn to read, and spent time in prayer and scripture regularly over the last 20-some years. We have hurt each other and forgiven each other, just like a family. We have walked one another through trials, upheld one another through grief, and rejoiced with one another. What a blessing the family of God is!

Christmas cards were made this year. It was fun, but the sewn tree trunks, while cute, were a bother! I need a new idea for next year-- this was fun!
Nikki received another 4 placemats for their new home. These featured virtues instead of family names, for use with company.
And yes, we are into Barbie doll sewing. I can get into this!!
Dave put together some Ikea crates, added casters on the bottom, and painted them. I upholsstered some seats with cushions and decorated a little, and voila! Rolling benches/toy boxes for Emma and Ezra's room. The unforseen consequence of making these was the fact that they make excellent go-carts! Pictures of that to come...
