Beans and rice...

For the month of January our family has decided to eat beans and rice for dinner each night!

This idea came from someone else who did it last year and wrote about it on their blog. But we felt it would be a great learning experience for us. There are children all over the world who starve to death daily. There are also millions who live on one meal of rice and beans daily~if they are "lucky!" We will be eating our regular foods for breakfast and lunch, we are only doing dinners. It isn't something I want to do, but I do think that we as a family will benefit from this experience.

The other family, put the money they saved into an adoption fund for someone else! Now that's sacrifice! We are putting the money in our adoption fund.

I have lots more to blog about, but my editor in chief is gone at a youth retreat,(and missing out on beans and rice...nice timing!) so I will refrain...for now!

Happy new year everyone! And Happy 1st Birthday Olivia! How can it be that a year has passed since you were born?

And one more very important thing...Lisa is coming HOME tomorrow!!! YAY!!!
