AWANA is an international Bible club for children that aims to instill the Word of God in their hearts and minds. Allison has been involved in our local AWANA club for the past three years.

This is her final year as a "Sparky" - next year, she'll move into the TNT (Truth 'N Training) group.

This is Abby's first year in AWANAs. She's a "Cubby" and has already earned four patches for Bible memorization!

Happy Thanksgiving!

There are so many things that I'm thankful for this year ~ family, friends, good health, a warm home and so much more!

This month, both girls have been doing a little bit of "school work."

Allison has been working on some math review and cursive handwriting...

while Abby practices matching, letter tracing and coloring.

We finally got some snow today. The girls were ecstatic and Abby immediately asked if I'd set up the Christmas tree! :)

Eager for the holidays to get underway, the girls colored ornaments...

and pictures that I drew for them.

I made turkeys for an after-lunch snack....

and we started our annual reading of "Kaatje and the Christmas Compass." It's the story of a little dutch girl and her year leading up to St. Nicholas Day, which we'll be celebrating soon!

David's been growing quickly and we're guessing he weighs about 11lbs now!

He loves to keep a hand up by his face. :)

More Pictures

Here are some more pictures of David! He is two and a half weeks old and weighs over 9lb 6oz!

The girls have been busy getting lots of play time in, planning their St. Nicholas Day wish lists, memorizing Bible verses for AWANA, practicing their piano lesson and doing some school work.
