This is our Family New Years and Christmas.
We do things a little different at our house as we switch Christmas and New Years traditions around.
For Christmas we celebrate Christ's Birthday.
What would Christ want for his birthday?
Mathew 25:40 "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
Basically we serve and give gifts to others.
At Christmas time we do a surprise Christmas meal for a needy family and give gifts to family and friends.
We also make goals to better ourselves.
This year we had a wonderful surprise visit from Grandma and Grandpa Boyd who showered us with gifts.
Kal'el's favorite was spiderman pajamas and a ninja sword.
At New Years time we clean up our house get rid of old stuff and get new stuff for the upcoming year.
We restock our one year food supply. We stock up on all shampoo, conditioner, soap, toiletries, bags, toothbrushes, laundry and dish soap, etc (non-food items) for the up coming year. This saves on shopping trips through out the year.
Kal'el got a few new toys as well.
mini trampoline (great for kids with sensory disorders)
New backpack ( much needed and it was on clearance for $7)
Tools and a hard hat to help mommy and daddy with construction and re-modeling projects.
Somewhere in here Kal'el decided to switch clothes.
World of Warcraft Legos. Nate and Kal'el had lots of fun with these. It took them 6 hours to build together.
