Half-time Cheerleading

This past weekend, our school hosted the Grace Shootout 5th and 6th grade b-ball tournament. Grace cheered for all of the boys games. Here is the half-time cheer routine that they have been practicing. In February, they will compete in a cheer competition with this routine. They are really pretty good for mostly 5th graders, Grace is on the end at the beginning of the routine. ENJOY!

Christmas Fun

Sorry it has been awhile since our last post, but time just keeps zipping by. Anyways, we had a wonderful Christmas and a super fun New Years. Now were are in the grind of winter. There were some special events during the Christmas season that I will update you on.....

Grace had her Advent/Christmas program. She opened the program with the prayer, and then she began the song as the rest of her classmates entered the church. What a wonderful time of the year. Hearing the message through children makes it that much more special.

Gary had a wonderful opportunity also. The Praise Team from our church, which he is a big part of, was able to spread the wonderful news of our Saviors birth through music at Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa.  They performed for 1 1/2 hours to the passing shoppers and lunch eaters in the Food Court on a snowy Sunday afternoon. It was wonderful to see the numerous shoppers stop by and listen, and even sometimes join them in song. Sharing the gospel is our mission, and they did it so well that afternoon.

Adam had his School Christmas program. He was the king that presented "Gold" to baby Jesus..... What Joy the young children bring to the anticipation of this glorious time of the year.

We were able to celebrate Christmas Eve with our youngest nephew (Rhys) and his mom and dad (Shelley and Erik) and his Grandparents. What fun we had.

We were also able to celebrate Chrismas Day with all of our other neices and nephew (Amanda, Sarah, Cora, Carmen, Cassidy, and Noah) and their mom's and dad's and Grandparents. So much joy filled the house.

We pray that you all had a very blessed Christmas and a wonderful new year.
