Merry Christmas!

We are so blessed to be able to yet again celebrate the birth of our Savior! What an incredible gift God gave us when He allowed Jesus to come rescue us. There is nothing so wonderful as knowing the love of Christ! We pray you are blessed by his presence this Christmas season.
We love you!

Christmas craft time!

We had a great time "making gingerbread cookies" this week as we assembled gingerbread men kits that I'd found for $1 at Target. It was money well spent because the kids loved this craft! I was especially impressed with Leo. He usually loses interest halfway through craft projects (with the exception of painting which he adores) but this time he just sat there working until his gingerbread men were completely finished. And then he was one proud little guy! :) Somehow I didn't get a photo of Bella's finished masterpiece... probably because she was busy helping the others! That girl is my right hand when it comes to helping Elsie and Silas.

Math time

The linking cubes are one of the most enjoyed math materials at the Kreke house. And of course, when I get them out for Isabella and Leo, the little two want to join in right away. :)

We had a fun time on Sunday at our first family Christmas party of the season. It's hard to believe an entire year has passed since the last time we celebrated, but we love Christmas in this house so we're excited that it's arrived again!

Hermie The Second

This past week we have been babysitting the hermit crab of homeschooling friends, and we've had a grand time. Elsie, especially, loves Hermie dearly. She gets very excited whenever he pokes his head out and begins to crawl. And I have to admit that a few times after everyone was in bed I have found myself watching this little guy crawl around, digging in his sand and doing whatever it is hermit crabs do to pass the time. He's a pretty cool fellow ;)
