Andersilliams Happiness Project (AHP)


There is a book that just came out called The Happiness Project. This book is based on a woman's year long quest to get more happiness into her life. You can read about her and the project here. On her site she encourages people to start their own happiness project and I thought this blog, this year, would be a great opportunity to start our own. Each Monday I will post a task, accomplishment, or just little something to do for the week. Some easy, some more difficult, and all (very) loosely based on The Happiness Project. I would love for you to participate and post your thoughts and results here as well.

Good Luck and here's to a transformed New Year!


Christmas Eve Service.


Tonight we took Alec to his first Church service ever. It was at the Methodist Church where he goes to school. It was a typical Methodist Christmas Eve service, tons of singing and candlelight. He loved it. He was even willing to pass his candle to me for a brief signing of Silent Night.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!


Kindergarten Christmas Musical


It was a great performance...

...punctuated by a truly "silent" Silent Night.


Craft Project Answers...


Project #1: Alec's Christmas Shoppe. He is immensely proud of this and will spend much time working in it, decorating it, and telling me all about it!
Project #2: These are little gifts (really more of a thank-you) for each of the kids and teachers at Asbury. They are stuffed with... yes, you guessed it! A pack of Lifesavers :)

Project #3 and 3 1/2: Alec is a wiseman in the kindergarten nativity play on Thursday and we had to make a crown and a robe for him. Thank goodness for homedepot drop-cloths! I am sure you will see more of this after Thursday.

Project #4: The ever famous gingerbread houses. This year we invited G'ma Yoni over and ended up creating an entire village.

Alec loved it...
And there was much sillyness...

The end result however is beautiful and truly a feast for the eyes!

Bell Ringing with Baby Jesus


On the way to the Mall to do our bell ringing Alec says, "I would like to change my name". "To what?" replies Averill. Alec says "to Baby Jesus, it is such a cool story".

Train garden
