homemade kings

for the visit of the three kings for our snack time today we made our own three kings with icecream cones, and marshmellows and various candies to decorate.

everyones kings, and Shawn holding the one I made.

and I decided the visiting kings deserved a toast as did the one true king they had come to visit .

I actually poured an extra glass by mistake but my kids said no that one was for Jesus and so it sat at the empty chair for our saviour.

there came wise men from the east bearing gifts

Today we celebrate Ephinay the arrival of those three kings to worship the new baby king. This day also has great meaning, the reason God allowed the kings to visit Jesus was a sign that he was meant for the world, not just for the Jewish people but for everyone. He was a gift of salvation to all who would seek him. And his blood would save us ALL from our sins and give us eternal life.We know today that the wise men may not have arrived till years later, but, it doesn;t really matter what matters is they came:-)

and today wise men and women still follow him:-)

Our New Years Eve Celebration

Happy 2010 this is how we welcomed in the new year.

the annual picture in new years hats. And our friends doggy who also came to the party.

a serious wii tournament going on.

we blew party horns very loudly too.

Shawn spent a good hour running back an forth with this string of pearl garland with the cat -Ruby- i hot pursuit, it was very funny and he laughed hysterically.

we went outside and watched some fireworks my uncle did, it was fun and a bit chilly. Then it was inside for a toast of sparkling grape juice then time for bed.

New Years memory verse

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come." 2Corinthians 5:17

I have not been very faithful in my memorizing of bible verses, so I have resolved this year to do one a week and really pray on it focus on it put it in my heart, and this one seemed a great place to start.
