12 Days of Giving Day 7

Last Saturday we went to Mana House to serve the homeless veterans dinner.  This is one of my favorite giving days.  Nothing gives me more joy than to see people enjoying good food that I have made.  It is one of the reasons I love to bake and cook.
I had never cooked a spiral ham before and that is what they requested.  You never know how something is going to turn out the first time and we were feeding 30 people.  It was an especially busy Saturday but Hailey and I managed to cook the ham and bake brownies and they were devoured.  Other people from our church brought scalloped potatoes, salad and cheese cake.  The men and women at MANA house are so grateful.  It is nice to sit down with them and just chat and provide company too.  The kids are very moved by this service as well.  Seeing the disabling effects others endure because of the service they provided and that we currently reap the benefits of has a way of making you want to do more for others.
Max was all in on giving everything he had on Saturday.  He coached Hank's basketball game in his suit because he had to run and give a talk at a symposium.  We had many laughs about what the other team must think, like this guy is taking his 7 year old kids basketball coaching WAY too seriously!  :)

I had to start the soccer game while coach Max was finishing the symposium.  Boy was I happy to see him racing toward the field!  I don't know a thing about soccer!  Just fake it till you make it is my motto.  He was certainly the best dressed man on the field.
 
Then we grabbed lunch and headed to watch Karlie's volleyball game.
After her game we raced home to change clothes, collect Hailey who had been cooking all day, and go to MANA house.
I was really wanting to see some Christmas lights so Max took us to see one of the best displays in Scottsdale.  Never once did he complain about the day.  While I hope we are teaching the kids during our 12 days of giving the importance of finding a way to serve and give back, I know they are learning daily from their father what having a loving and giving heart looks like.
