What uncommon things do we want to become common?

Things like:
our children having mutual love and respect for each other.
our teenage children having love, honor, respect and obedience for their parents.
us continually becoming better friends and lovers.
our family totally trusting God in all things and putting our faith in Him to fulfill his promises.

Virtual Gifts

By Creg

This Christmas we gave each other virtual gifts (explained in the last post). We also did a few "real" gifts where everyone got something that they could create with; calligraphy pens, wood carving tools, a crystal growing kit, and a science experiment.

Here is the list (and a few pictures) of the virtual gifts each one received:

 Granny Kay got a Caribbean cruise, including a trip to pet sting rays at Sting Ray City in the Cayman Islands.

Pa King got a day of watching sports & western movies on the big screen while eating crawfish etoufee, dirty rice & pecan pie a la mode followed with a game of Uno with the grandkids. He also got a hover chair that can take him anywhere and a robot that serves Whataburger patty melts on request.

Steele was made the youngest employee of LEGOLAND. He will be designing LEGO sets from his latest ideas, including a series of Bible stories & characters. 

Samantha got a membership in Celtic Women, a fantastic Irish Celtic singing group with a violinist who is Samantha’s favorite. Now Samantha will be playing along side her hero during their world-wide tour.

Sterling got a game sideline pass to see his favorite team, the Miami Dolphins, and to stand by his favorite player, Cameron Wake, and get his game-worn jersey. After the victory Sterling will be flying to the Isle of Blynn near Pappa New Guinea to discover a living dinosaur!

Sierra got season tickets to the Carolina Panthers football games (including plane flights & lodging) and 12 pups birthed from her Golden Retriever Skye.

Chelsa got a beautiful, bountiful, diverse green garden. This garden are filled with delicious, nutritious vegetables, fruits, and herbs with NO plant harming bugs and where everything lives in perfect natural harmony. 

Creg got a wonderfully plush grass-filled pasture with a frog & turtle pond in the middle and a victory with Chelsa on the Amazing Race.

Harlem got a steak dinner & a day of drawing with his artistic father Brack. Then he found out that Brack is really Batman (Harlem’s favorite) and Harlem got a superhero uniform to help his dad save the world.

Brack got a shoe Ferris wheel so he can easily pick out his shoes for the day, which he has some for every occasion. He also got a 2013 Lincoln Navigator for $500 and a 1-bedroom apartment for $35 a month.

We had a lot of fun reading about our "gifts" & celebrating a wonderful time together.
