Christmas...It's begun...

I'm feeling a little more bloggy lately. There's a lot going on right now and I'm reminded again and again how blessed I am. Friends that I love are struggling and I don't know how to help. So, I pray. And, I try to spend time with those I love most. So, here's what we did this evening.
Typically, we put up our tree on Thanksgiving night. This year we were in Dallas with our extended family and didn't get home until Sunday evening. The kids were all for putting up the tree, but after 6 hours in the car with heavy rain the whole way home...well, the tree would have to wait. Tonight was the night and they were very excited. I had gotten a Lego set about a month ago during a sale and I brought it out tonight for an extra surprise. It's the Lego Christmas Village... For one blessed hour, the punks worked together and helped each other get their village put together. Now THAT'S a gift!

I LOVE it!!! Maybe I should hunt a set down and see if it will create a team effort, even if it's temporary, LOL! I'd photograph it, too, for proof! ;-) Really....I love your family!!!!
