deliver cookies and ornaments to neighbors

yesterday while the kids were rolling out their sugar cookies, i had a marathon baking day in the kitchen prepping goodies to take to our neighbors.  the kids put together a plate filled with a variety of cookies, the ornaments they made, and then either a jar of fudge or caramel.

 the kids loaded up the wagon,

and headed out to our neighbors houses.
when it came time to deliver, mauryn a certain someone was not happy about the situation. she came inside and put herself down for a nap.

when she woke up she was MUCH happier.
morgan and landon left one house for mauryn to deliver goodies.
so she happily grabbed the wagon and headed down the street.

Bible Verses:
And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
  Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

  “Glory to God in the highest heaven, 
   and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
   When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”
   So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.   When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,  and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.  But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.  The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
Luke 2:8-20
