This weekend was busy to say the least. Between office holiday parties, dinner club and sister Christmas celebrations, we managed to fit in gymnastics, caroling, wreath laying with Wreaths Across America and assembling our holiday greetings!
This Saturday, after months of going door to door and standing outside of store fronts, Cash was finally able to see the results of all the generous donations his troop was able to collect! He spent over five hours at the veteran's cemetery participating in the ceremonies and assisting with wreath distribution. This has been my favorite of our projects; it goes to such a great cause. The lessons the children learn about the sacrifices others have made for our nation, as well as meeting the thankful families and veterans is absolutely priceless. This Saturday, nearly the entire cemetery was decorated with 58,000 wreaths! All by the generosity of other's time and money!

Yuliya was also out and about spreading joy on Saturday. She spent the day caroling at an assisted living home, and earning her Summit Award! After gymnastics, we rushed to donuts and practice before heading off to the true performance. The girls did such a wonderful job and the audience thoroughly enjoyed their caroling and card / gift giving!
Handing out cards they hand made for the occasion.
The girls also kindly gave away their jingle bells; which, brought a great deal joy to the new owners who jingled along with the remainder of the songs!
Yuliya and her friend Hanna earn their Summit Award- signalling that they have complete the three brownie journeys! Woohoo! She is prepared to bridge in the spring!
