Christmas Basket

Our church blessed us with an abundance of things for Christmas. Josh says we probably got the most submissions, some know things are tight, other just feel like a family of six can ALWAYS use more help. I will take any blessing God wants to throw our way. His blessings are always ABUNDANT! It was a tiny bit harder for Josh, but he decided not to listen to Satan's lies. He is a great provider, and I am thankful for that. But who doesn't want a blessing once in a while?

I wrote a list of ALL the things we got, just so you could see HOW MUCH!!!!!
The church was organized; they bless 800 families during this project. They were streamlined, and it was a great thing to see. I should have taken pictures of how amazing the church looked.

On to the list:

1 Turkey
3 Dozen Eggs
2 Stalks of Celery
2 Bags of Carrots

I explained to the kids about our blessing, and they were very excited to go and pick our things up. Abishai said they would be only thankful for the things that God gave us, no complaining. BUT he added that it sure would be nice to have some candy!!!!

That is soooooo great!

4 presents for each kid? Like 16 presents or 1 present for each kid meaning 4 total?
