Happy Thanksgiving! November 25, 2010

Filed under: Holiday,It's Fall!,Special Dates — Madeline@AGDC @ 12:17 PM

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the day of thanks to God and being thankful for what we have. What are your thanksgiving traditions- do you have a feast at your grandma’s, watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade with your cousins? What are you thankful for?
My dolls are giving thanks today too. Josie is going to give thanks because she is getting her hair re-done today (downy-dunking it, washing it, putting the braids back in). They’ll feast later on, too. Some of the things I am thankful for are:
1. Jesus and my salvation
2.My family and friends
3. Clean water and fresh food
4. Ability and health
5. A car, a roof over my head,  a bed to sleep in each night
6. A Christian school to go to
7. A life that God has given me.
and so much more. There are so many things that we take for granted- even the sun rising every morning. Many people have never drank clean water. So, today, let’s pray and give thanks for all that we have- needs and wants. God is good- no, he’s GREAT!

February Fun February 6, 2010

Ok everyone, it’s Madeline. I hope you all are starting to get out your heart candies and yummy chocolates,  because this month is FEBRUARY FUN MONTH! There is so much great stuff we’ll be doing in February and almost every post will go along with the theme! There are Valentine’s Day Parties, Addy and Lulu will teach you about Black History Month, and Eva Grace will celebrate a new twist on Chinese New Year. And we’ll be having several contests ALL MONTH! It’s definitely a month you DON’T want to miss!!!
