Helping at the Food Bank and Creating with Cookies

We sorted and put together boxes at the Regional Food Bank for our family activity this week.  Then, we came home, put together our gingerbread house, and decorated it.  I think that at this point, there is only one Hershey's kiss left on it as the rest of them somehow snuck away! 

We also cut out and decorated sugar cookies. 
 Rolling out the dough for sugar cookies:

                                    YUM!  The finished product:

  2. Hi Susan, thank you for your prayers. I'm okay and my family too. We are fortunate enough to be distant from the catastrophe. The tragedy was truly heartbreaking. It was our first to experience such cruelty. Many were washed out by the flood and were found in the sea near our place. The day after the storm, the fishermen in our town helped rescue them. Many were wounded, and the others, sadly, didn't survive the impact. Nurses volunteered to tend those who were injured, and I was one of them. Really sad.

    We also visited those affected places (you probably saw the aftermath on TV). It was devastating. They greatly need help. My family already donated food and clothes. We thought they need them most.

    Thank you again Susan! I believe help will come to those who need it. Pray with us.

    By the way, I stopped posting my "flash series." It doesn't feel right.

  3. Have a Merry Christmas and happy holidays Susan! God bless to you and your family. Thank you for your prayers.

    greeting card for you!
