on monday night i went to a girl's movie night, had some pumpkin spice latte and watched "elf"..can i just say, lovin the holidays...lovin! so while i was out, i got out a crafty type project for the kids to do. they had such a great time with dad and did such a great job, i had to show them off.
the turkey on the left is ella's with a little help from dad. the turkey on the right is jakob's with no help from anyone. such creative monsters i have!
i'm about ready to start decorating for Christmas. i know the rule has always been to wait until after thanksgiving but we'll be out of town, sooooooo why not now? the kids are certainly ready for it. and before i hear the flack, let me just say....no i'm not skipping over thanksgiving. in fact, this season of turkey day has me more thankful than i've ever been, or at least it feels that way.
the Lord has given me such joy and such a new breath of life that i'm in thankful mode nearly every day. it's been amazing to FEEL Him working in me. i LOVE it! saying thankful and making a list really doesn't do justice to the blessings i've been given.
so skipping the holiday? i think not, in fact, i'm determined to have this thankful heart last all year long...i know it will be hard.....but just bet me that i won't do it. what's that you say?
