Cleaning the Escalade

 


Keith and the kids finally decided to take on the task of giving the Escalade a deep clean. You can see Tucker is using a special brush attached to a drill, and he's using that to work the special soap into the carpet. It took many hours and many applications of soap and water to get most of the dirt out. 


Carson is using a horsehair brush to gently brush away a lot of the grime on the chairs. 



I guess we should take some 'after' pictures, but now, the Escalade looks bright and clean.

The kids all held up different pictures of Christ as part of a Christ-centered presentation after the puppet-nativity. 



The kids put on a puppet nativity while Scott narrated, reading the Christmas story in Luke. 


We had a nice Christmas Eve.
