Serving Others..

 BEcause we have been blessed we pass on the blessings. God has been good to us in the past number of years. We live in a community where people are constantly looking for ways to serve others. As a single mom with lots of kids I can not ever express enough gratitude for all the things we are blessed with.

So we have decided to pass on the blessings. We found a local homeless shelter that welcomes young volunteers. Once a month we visit the shelter and cook lunch for the clients. These are single moms, young women and men who do NOT have support systems or have made choices that have burned bridges with their support systems.

My kids love to serve here. They help plan the menu, grocery shop and then cook and serve. Their favorite part is dishing out the food for the clients of the shelter.

The best part: We do not have to clean up!!

I love teaching my kids how to prepare and serve food to large groups. We have been blessed with friends who join us and help serve.

Because of Bubbie's allergies and asthma it is often easier to host, rather then go to other people's homes! Thanksgiving was a much anticipated affair. My friend and her 3 kiddoes joined us for lunch. We set the table all nice and fancy.

We served lunch and dinner.  The kids each got to make one dish! Fayth was quite proud of her pumpkin pie!

The kids did crafts, played dolls, and rode horses!

 Even Nesiah had a fun day!

These two are double trouble... they love to play together and fight with each other! I love the holidays with kids!!

Another epic fail... 

Because there is nothing like little boys to add spice to your life!
