I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

Dec 1st -- Marshmallow Snowflakes

Welcome to the 25 fun days of Christmas. Make white marshmallow snowflakes to hang on the tree.

So I had awesome directions to make these, but my kids all wanted to do their own thing. As Kaden so wisely pointed out, "No 2 snowflakes are alike Mom."

By the way, not one of these made it to the tree. They were just too yummy not to eat!
