Questions..... and random facts :)

1. How do you spend your day?
Being home schooled, we are often flexible with our schedule, so of course every day is different (that's what makes life so interesting!)! At 8:30 we do Bible study as a family. After that, we do our "academic" schoolwork until around lunch time. Then after lunch we often something going on involving music (lessons, practices... etc.... although sometimes they're before lunch or later in the evening... it depends on the day.) :)
When we have extra time at home and everything that needs to be done is done... we like to work on projects (sewing, crocheting, knitting....), cook/bake, read, sing..... we love being home and doing things as a family.

2. Which missionary "hero" encourages you most in your faith and why?
Well...there are lots of extraordinary missionaries but I would have to say Brother Andrew is one of my favorites, because he had such faith in God as he smuggled Bibles .
Having complete faith and trust in God is something I often have trouble with, and Brother Andrew has encouraged me in this... so that's why he is one of my missionary hero's. :)

Hannah, we did not go to your friends' shop when we were in Sitka, but I'm pretty sure that our cousins did. We were in a different part of the city at the time.

Erin.... hopefully!!! We're definitely looking out that way! It would be VERY awesome if we lived closer!!!!!

We're going to try to think of three random Christmas facts about our family....

1. Our Christmas Eve tradition is to go to the Christmas Eve service at our church, come home and have a yummy Christmas Eve dinner, then the kids exchange gifts.
2. Our Christmas Eve tradition is going to be different this year! We're going to eat earlier, then the two of us will be at church from 4:30-8:00 to play in the services. We'll definitely still have a great Christmas Eve, though!
3. We have lots of fun each year going to a Christmas tree farm and cutting down our tree! Elaina is the official Christmas tree cutter of the family. haha :) She loves doing it!

We probably won't be back until after Friday... so HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!!!!!

Luke 2:11-12
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."

In Christ,
Marissa and Andrea

Thanks for answering my question. I attend a private school, so we don't have as much free time as what you are able to have.

Merry Christmas,
