Hopefully a New Tradition....

I so enjoy serving others or volunteering in some way.  And I enjoy it even more when I can involve my girls too.  Last year my friend Somer organized a group that went and visited a local nursing home to bring Christmas cards and sing some songs for the members.  I was so bummed but we were unable to go.  I've been wanting to bring the girls to a home and bring some holiday cheers to those that were there.  I have such heart for that generation.  These are the people that raised our parents, who raised us and we have them to thank for our lives and the history that they have seen just intrigues me.  My heart has definitely grown for them also, since my grandpa moved closer to this direction last year.

I was so thankful when my friend decided to organize a group to visit the home again this year and we could go!  I brought the hubs and Mormor Domier along too so they could enjoy the moment with the girls and I.  We have been making and saving Christmas pictures for the last couple of weeks to bring to the grandmas and grandpas.  The girls were very good and sweet about handing out cards.  They were a bit shy at first but definitely warmed up.  A lot of the ladies just wanted to touch, shake their hand, and/or hug them.  It was just precious.  And Cookie put on a great show for all the grandmas and grandpas. :)

After the big card giveaway we sang some Christmas carols for them and closed with Happy Birthday Jesus.  Bella was quite hysterical and down right screamed some of the lyrics, she's definitely my performer! :)  We look forward to hopefully doing this every year!
