November 30th

30 days of Thankfulness....

Today is the last day of the 30 days of Thankfulness series. I honestly did not think I would make it through the last 30 days but with the Lord's help here I am on the last day. Today I am thankful for quiet time with my girls. Today was a fun day spending time outside while the girls played. Mommy hasn't felt well this week so we did not get any school done but we did make memories. While I type this the big girls are stringing popcorn to put on their outside Christmas tree to feed the birds. Since Abby is so small we don't want to chance her allergies with a real tree inside and the girls really wanted one so we cut down a small tree to put outside on the porch.

30 days of Thankfulness.....

Today I am thankful for opportunities to play with my children. A while back we made edible play dough and stored it in the icebox. Today the girls decided they wanted to pull it out and play with it again. Unfortunately it was hard and crumbly so I experimented and brought it back to life. The girls are now happily sitting around the table making "gingerbread" men and other Christmas "cookies" out of their play dough. Just for the record even though it is edible, it doesn't taste very well.
