Welcome to My Reel Life blog!
Join me on the journey to know Christ more!
This is the final post to wrap up the year 2016! Again, this is another picture overload post! Enjoy!
October - Little Bro's 1st Piano Recital, Big Birthday Month, A Buddist Party
For some reason we don't have pictures from Mom's birthday which was six days before Baby sis. Happy Birthday Mom!
November - Nationals!
To see more from our Nationals trip visit our website: Greater Phoenix Bible Bee
December - Miss L.'s birthday, Recitals, Outings, Operation Christmas Child and Christmas
For Miss L.'s birthday, we went to Prescott to enjoy all the Christmas festivities there. It had been some years since we went. We enjoyed visiting the Gingerbread contest buildings on display, the Walk Thru Bethlehem, light display maze thing in the mall and the drive thru Lights of the Valley. Below is a snippet from a few of those events.
For one of our Christmas presents, Mom took two kids at a time to a special event or place. 2nd Bro and I went with her to see Handel's Messiah (and it was AMAZING!) Mr. O and Miss L. went with her to the Nutcracker ballet. And Little Bro and Sweet Sis went with her to see Zoo lights. We love having outings as presents!
Mr. O had the privilege to help some friends out at their church's nativity village thing. He had to be Joseph leading a donkey around.
We had the privilege to volunteer at Operation Christmas Child distribution center and we all loved it! The littles spent most of the day out at a zoo/park with Mom, while the rest of us went through the boxes. This was a highlight of the year for sure!
(It was also enjoyable to meet up with some BB friends for dinner, though we didn't get any pictures from it. :( )
Spent some time at the beach! It was awesome!
I don't have much pictures after our CA trip. We had a wonderful Christmas with a few family members and a family friends!
Yay! I finally made it to the end of 2016! This wraps up the year! I hope you enjoyed getting to see what we did this past year!
Until next time...
