Thankful for Everyday Life
Because this is where I am right now
This is for you
Yes, you, mama of littles
Don't get frustrated, you are not alone
and God sees you
He sends everyday blessings to you.
If you missed it,
you can read about it in my last post
We have no idea when
but it is going to happen
I'm Thankful God knows what is best for our family.
I'm Thankful He will lead us.
I"m Thankful for your prayers
that give us the grace we need to keep looking for ways to make this work.
Thankful we had one day that was warm enough to read books on the porch!
Thankful for creative, silly girls that can't wait for spring,
so they can play in the water and mud.
Ummm, yeah, that one warm day, gave water for these Barbies and their bathtub,
but then then the next day they were frozen
(does this seem kind of Twilight Zoney to you?)
Thankful this sweet little girl will be making her First Holy Communion
(the snow better be gone by then!)
Our parish decided to do poster paper banners instead of
the felt ones.
I guess it saved them like 400 bucks to do it this way.
So we got a blank paper this size
and we could do whatever we wanted to it.
I think it turned out pretty nice, except that stupid vine thing I tried to do at the top.
Thankful for my old, old recipe holder.
This thing is so stuffed.
What do you do with your recipes?
Your physical recipes, the ones you can hold?
I need to do something, put them in something bigger.
(I have dividers in this but you can't see them, because it is so stuffed)
Thankful, or rather, the kids are Thankful I tried a new bar recipe.
They liked them...
You can tell by the smile and the chocolate on her mouth!
I know, I know, this is the lazy woman's way of showing you the recipe...
Not lazy, just busy.
Yep, I like that, it's the busy woman's way of showing you a recipe.
Thankful for my kitchen helper this week!
(he's making crepes here)
He's learned a lot since we started this kitchen helper thing
(Thanks 9peas for the idea)
For the Feast of the Annunciation
(when the Angel of our Lord appeared to Mary and Mary said,
"I am the handmaid of the Lord")
Thankful for feast days and good recipes!
We made Blueberry Snack cake
It's a favorite, it tastes like blueberry muffins only in a cake pan
Only a little.
I still rock him to sleep and tonite,
I laid him in bed with his big big big sister.
(we actually have 2 double size beds next to each other,
we call it "Grandma's feather bed" --you know that John Denver song, right?)
Three girls sleep there and now Little Red.
We need to start decluttering,
so we can stage our house to sell,
so the crib needed to go.
We figured it would be good to do it now,
he can get used to waking up with his sisters
and then when we move, it won't be such a shock.
I have not conceived a baby in a long time,
so we have the crib in the truck ready to be donated.
Oh, my heart aches...
Thankful we spotted the Red Fox again in our yard, we've seen her twice in the last 2 days.
A few years ago, a fox dug a den in our bank in our woods,
so about every other year we have a fox.
She has babies and we only see her a little in the spring
Then she's gone
This is the best shot I could get of her.
Thankful for lots of decluttering!!
Lots of donating!!
Thankful it's so easy when we ask the question,
"Do we really want to move this?"
Thankful for grass growing in the windows...
Thankful for a sweet sweet husband who brought me this spring cactus!!
(symbolic of Arizona, I think, don't you?)
Thankful our piano teacher also brought me a spring plant!!
This spring garden...It might not be spring outside yet,
but it is in our house!
Thankful this kid LOVES puzzles!!
He is working on three 24 piece ones here!
Thankful he learned how to take his clothes off.
Wait, I'm not really Thankful for that one, but it sure is cute!!
(he's running "the strip" as I call it, he starts in the living room
and runs down the hallway to the office)
Thankful for my sweet little lefty
(takes after her mama and her big brother)
Yeah, we're cool.
Thankful for this song, you'll like it too!
Have a great weekend everyone!
50's expected here for Sunday
and snow on Monday.
