The Millage Cook

The Millage Cook
The sign was made by my two children
You see I made pancakes for breakfast this morning and they must have been good because my children decided we should open a restaurant and it should be called "The Millage Cook" They made the above sign and and wanted to post it outside so the neighbors could see and could come in and eat. They were even making up a menu of what mom cooks that is good for people to order. They are very creative but we told them the sign needed to stay inside so they are making a list of friends for us to invite over to eat. They just make me laugh sometimes.

They had to go home :0(

Lunch at Chili's the day before they left

Aaron & Hannah hooked up the DS to play together as long as they could

Still texting Hannah
they will be back in March for Denielle's wedding
We had a great time with Susan, Bobby, Aaron & Geoffrey it was hard to see them go. They got home safely (thank you Lord) and we plan to see them again in March. Thanks for coming and having Christmas with us we loved every minute of it. We love you all.

Our 11:30 - 12:30 crew
Our 12:30 - 1:30 crew (these were the fancy wrappers and they made home made bows)
We met some great people today
Here is my crew the 1:30 - 2:30 bunch.
We had such a great day we wrapped lots of gifts met lots of wonderful thankful people and we had great fellowship. This is one of my favorite activities of the year, it's such a great way to reach out to the community and bless lots of people. I can't wait until next year maybe we will wrap for 5 hours next time.
