We're not perfect but we serve a perfect God! Phil 12-14 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Winning Christmas Presents
I probably do not want to know how much money I have spent on presents that were tossed to the side and never looked at again. They usually can be found later in a pile with parts of tape and wrapping paper still hanging on!
This year, I felt like I knew the girls a little better and they have more definite likes and interests. Compared to years past, I didn't spend as much money on Christmas gifts. However, we got several things that seem to be a big hit with the girls!
Most of my purchases were made on amazon. I LOVE me some Amazon Prime! One of our favorite gifts that the whole family is enjoying is the tile lock scrabble game that we got. We have played it multiple times a day. The twins can't spell well yet so playing with them might make you want to throw it through the front window requires a little patience. :) It is especially fun for LG. Henry and I may or may not have played a game alone after the kids were in bed last night. I told him that we were going to make awesome old people!
Hands down, the most favored gift of all the girls is a cardboard box! Shocker! This one actually comes in the form of a playhouse and it has been a HUGE hit! The girls love them. I ordered them back in the summer when they were on Kidswoot.com for $19.99 but I would probably pay amazon's price now that I know how much they love them. They have decorated them and love to hang out in them with their toys and play.
Of course, we had to throw in some babysitters electronic devices. But once again, amazon came through with $35 kindles. Henry downloaded a program called freetime which allows him to set a time limit, as well as an on and off time. This has really taken care of the five more minutes that some kids (not mine, of course) might argue about.
So, it's time to begin my Christmas shopping for next year!
