Karate Kids

 This year the boys had a Star Wars themed birthday party at a local Martial Arts studio. They decided to invite all the kids from their preschool class along with some of their other close friends. They had a really fun time and are so excited to start Tiny Tigers Taekwondo there in January. 

A few days before the party Granny had foot surgery so this was the first time in their life that someone else made their birthday cake. It wasn't as good as Granny makes it but still very yummy.

First they held a karate class

Look how disciplined these kids look!

Learning some moves

Then time for cake!

 Then they set up an obstacle course

Adam enjoyed hitting the "fake man"

Learning about breaking boards

 The boys were presented with their new uniforms

They also gave them num-chucks, yikes!

Everyone got to practice breaking these plastic boards

Then Adam & Andrew got to try breaking a real wood board


They were very proud!

Then they bowed to all their friends to thank them for coming, very cute!

High Fives for everyone!

Thanks to all our friends and family that helped us to celebrate this special day!

Andrew was SO excited to get his very own copy of his favorite movie from Granny, "Soul Surfer" and also a new Star Wars book that he insisted on sleeping with them ;-)

As we approach Christmas may your thoughts turn toward why this Babe was born! Praying!
John 3:14-17 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

On this Christmas Eve look to the only source of true hope, peace, and salvation! Praying!
Matthew 1:20-23 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
