Advent Calendar Days 4 & 5

On day 4, Eva drew a tiny little Bible out of the pocket. She was with her Uncle Nate and Aunt Lauren, so they got the privilege of reading her the entire Christmas story from her Bible. They reported that she just soaked it in, as usual! I'm sure she LOVED hearing someone else read to her besides Daddy and me, and her Uncle Nate (an elementary school teacher) really knows how to tell a story! She truly adores her Uncle Na and Aunt Lu. I'm glad she could experience this with them. Mike and I were at a wedding in Virginia and had a GREAT time!

Day 5 was another day that Eva got to open the pocket with her Uncle and Aunt! She drew a music scale out and knew just what it was; she is always excited for anything that involves music! Uncle Nate and Aunt Lauren taught Eva a Christmas Carol. She learned "Little Drummer Boy", which she chose from 3 options I knew she would love. The others were "Away in a Manger" and "O Come All Ye Faithful". She learned the significance of praising the Lord with whatever gifts you have like the little drummer boy. He praised the Lord by playing the drums because he had no money to buy a gift fit for a King! She told them, "but I do have money"! And, they explained that she could praise the Lord with that, too! This song has always impacted me and I am so glad that she knows it now.

Ever heard of Shrinky Dinks? We finally got around to making one to represent each activity. They are adorable and the kids think they are so neat!

We're the Wells family. We currently consist of Michael (husband and daddy), Lauren (wife and mama), Evangeline (daughter and princess), and Samuel (son and prince). We live a pretty simple life loving the many blessings that God grants us each and every day.
Mike is a genius carpenter/contractor and works throughout neighboring counties. Lauren stays at home with Eva and Sam most of the time, but works a few days a week as a therapist.
More than anything else, we love being together as a family- trips to the gardens, swimming at Grammie and Papa's house, and bike rides & walks are probably our most frequent activities. We're surrounded by our family (siblings and parents); they all live within 30 minutes of us!
That's us in a nut shell.
We're thankful you dropped by our site!
