A Catch-Up Collage

Been busy "living life" lately, so I thought I would do one post as a catch-up collage. Enjoy!

In early December, JSS had a Cub Scout
Awards Ceremony. It was a very big deal for
JSS particularly as he was awarded the
WEBELOS Super Achiever Award. This means that
he has completed ALL 20 BADGES it is possible
to earn as a WEBELOS Scout!

He was also awarded the Emblem of Faith,
which he completed during the summer months
with his friend, Garrett, and both were awarded
these special badges, which go above and beyond
the normal requirements since it is optional.
(Unfortunately, Dad was out-of-town on business
and could not attend...)

(...but JSS had a whole row for a cheering section,
which included his Grandma and his very loud
and proud big brother home from college!)

He also was one of the top sellers of popcorn
this year, selling most all of it the first week!
And he was able to lead in the ceremony
by carrying the Christian flag.
Proud Mom Moment

Our church had a "Night of Carols" where
the body got together to celebrate the season
in song! Three of the four kids were in
choirs that blessed all those in attendance.
Below, Mom and Job working on Grandpa's
scarf & hat set for his birthday while waiting
for the "Night of Carols" to begin

Much to her surprise, COS was called up on stage
with her friend to help lead a song, totally unplanned.

We were invited out to East Texas the weekend
before Christmas to celebrate with family that
was going out-of-town. Below are some shots
from our watching "While You Were Sleeping,"
one of Mom's favorite holiday movies. :)
(We also geocached, which is quickly becoming
a favorite hobby of Mom's as her family gifted
her with a devise for her birthday a couple of days prior.)
Below, Job and his sweet girlfriend Sarah enjoying
the movie together. She flew to Thailand to
be with her family a few days later, as they
have served the Lord there for years.
Below are some pics from the wiener roast
at Grandma and Grandpa's house that same
night. Grandpa has constructed a most
incredible fire ring behind their house!
This isn't the first time we've gotten
to enjoy it's warmth and their hospitality.
Job (and Sarah) returned to school
on Monday, Jan. 10th. This is just
a gratuitous shot of them I wanted
to share. It was taken in November,
I think. :)
