a few weeks ago,
we were invited to a very special day.
there was a little red helicopter
way, way up in the sky.
and as it came closer
we saw who was inside!
Santa Claus, himself!
he was quickly escorted
via golf cart to visit with us.
these sweet, sweet people
who absolutely love the Lord
included our family
on this wonderful day.
L did not want to have anything to do with the big guy.
and believe it or not,
the bigs wouldn’t come even this close to him!
but they loved
the face painting and
balloon making elf.

“And you, my child,
will be called a prophet of the Most High;
for you will go on before the Lord
to prepare the way for him,
to give his people the knowledge of salvation
through the forgiveness of their sins,
because of the tender mercy of our God,
by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven”
