    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

Make Your Own Snow Globe.

PHOTO.jpgAlthough Christmastime isn’t solely about gifts, I know that in North America, they do play an integral role. Gift-giving can get incredibly expensive, incredibly fast. This only adds to a person’s stress level at Christmas. My solution? To make your own gifts! I’m not implying that you should make all of them, but there is usually a certain someone (or two) who would cherish a handmade rather than store-bought present.

IMG_2.jpgAll that you will need for this snow globe is:

A jar

Twine/ribbon/string

Some sort of lovely trinket/photograph

Sparkles

Water (optional)

IMG_3.jpgSo if your family is as big as mine, or even if it isn’t, or if you’d like to do something a little different for Secret Santa this year, why not make your own gift? (And then post a link in the ‘Hello Comments’ below!)

Next week I will have another Make Your Own … This time, for the food enthusiasts in your family!
