{Make it DrEaMy like Pie!}

Not quite the New Year. . . but I am on the hunt!

I am searching for caregivers that could serve once a year on our 5th Sundays.

This would prevent our regular scheduled caregivers from serving more than once a month, and keep them on their schedule.

The dates are:

January 31

May 30

Aug 29

Oct 31

We would love to have you.
It will be wonderful if we can fill these places!
Our nursery schedule will look dreamy like a slice of pie!

{Feelings ~ JOY ~ A Baby ~ New Year}

Hello on this Christmas Eve . . .

How are you?

Tired. Cooking. Cleaning. Visiting. Traveling. Wrapping. Happy. Sad. Lonely. Excited.

Wherever you are. . .

How ever you feel. . .

I hope you feel the JOY and WARMTH of Christ Love this Christmas.

I love you all.

I am so sorry for those of you missing loved ones, or taking care of loved ones that may not be with you much longer. The holidays can seem lonely and hard, and I am sorry.

We do have reason to celebrate (and it's okay if you just don't feel like it right now. . . God will restore) ~ A Savior ~ Our Savior was born.

A Baby.

A Precious Baby.

I will talk to you after the NEW YEAR. . .

I am going to eat, sleep, celebrate, and nestle up with my family.

Love, Tonia

P.S. Never hesitate to call me if you need anything.

{A Celebration for Our King!}

What a wonderful wonderful time we had at our
Happy Birthday Jesus Party!

Sweet Sisters.
Miss R. Smith

Fun Crafts!!

We went to The Tree House and fed the animals that were
like the ones in the stable where Jesus was born.
I must have been telling them how stinky those animals were!
They rocked and loved their sweet babies, like Mary loved Baby Jesus.

Carson makes a stable with his hands.
3 wise men came to see Jesus.

Lots and Lots of Hay!

Sweet Drew was unsure!
Remember ~ these guys think these animals are real!
It was precious!
The animals were sure hungry!
I think Drew finally warmed up to them!
Mrs. Stephanie helped him.
Sunday was CJ's Birthday too!
Sweet Cousins.
Miss Harper helps Mr. Hud put on his party hat!
Juice, cupcakes, pretzel stix, and bananas!
Sweet Praying Hands!

Fun with our Friends!

Beach Balls and Little Ducks!
I hope you all had a great time celebrating Jesus!
Remember to read
Luke 2
with your kiddos on Christmas Morning.
Merry, Merry Christmas my friends and babies!
I love you all!

First of all ~ I should thank Shaina & Terral for keeping The Hobbs Crew so
