This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Cookie Day!!

I ordinarily wouldn't be writing about a cookie baking day, but today was really a lot of fun. It was the first time in our newly-remodeled kitchen, and Haley was old enough to really get into the whole process.  (She actually was in the thick of it for several hours, working right alongside Lyn.)  Of course, Kristi and Lexi were up to their elbows in cookie dough, too!

The results of the day:  sugar cookies, thumb prints, cherry winks, M&M Monster Cookies, and caramel corn.

"And what are YOU looking at?"
Haley really enjoyed the whole experience.
She worked hard all day.

Lexi had fun too--especially with the sugar cookies.

Haley and Kristi proudly displaying their
first batch of sugar cookies.

Lexi always scrunches her face up when she
poses for a picture and says "Cheeeeeeeese!"
It's really funny.

Here's a little video that captures some of
the experience of the big day!

That was a great way to preserve the Holiday Season.
