I'm a little embarrassed to say I am repeating my Christmas printable from last year. I am finishing up something, but alas it is a Christmas present and so of course I can't show it on here yet. I promise I have great things in store to share, but not until AFTER Christmas.
Here is a Christmas printable coloring page of Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. I changed this coloring page a little from last year. I read this quote a few weeks ago from the president of my church, and it has really stuck with me.
"May we all make the journey to Bethlehem in spirit, taking with us
a tender, caring heart as our gift to the Savior."
-President Thomas S. Monson.
Here is a version for your children to color.
(click on picture, save to computer and print)
For some reason my computer is uploading the picture with a gray tint. Like always you are more than welcome to e-mail me directly (springmcdonald(at)gmail.com), and I will send you the original file (with no gray tint). Also if you would just like the image with no words I'd be happy to send that to you too.
My two oldest children (ages 7 & 5) had their first summer of soccer this year. It was torture. The practices, the cold, rain and heat. I about died, oh and the kids were tired too. Their team didn't win one game, but they finally scored one goal the last 5 minutes of the last game and you would have thought they just won the World Cup, all us parents were jumping up and down screaming and hugging. They still lost the game but the kids didn't know or care. One goal was all they needed.
I want to be a better fan to all my friends and family. Cheering for your successes, even if it's just one goal the last 5 minutes of the game, and there for you in your sorrow. Your joy is my joy, your sorrow is my sorrow. I hope this next year to be a better friend to you all.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and holiday season!
