Two Days Away =)

Thanksgiving is two days away. Our turkey is thawing in the frig, yum. A big bag of potatoes is waiting to become cooked and mashed, yum. A gluten free pumpkin pie is in the freezer waiting for the big day, yum! We will share our day with some of Christy's family and a few of my siblings. It will be delightful. 

The hustle and bustle of preparation is just around the corner....and for the most part, I love it. But for today, right now, I'm going to kick back, relax, drink a cup of pumpkin spice coffee, and rest a spell. 

It's a pretty day today, a bit chilly, but not bad at all for the end of November. 

Love this window! 

God Bless your Tuesday. Happy Thanksgiving!

A few pictures, hope they make you smile :-)

It's been a full week so far....normal!

His cuteness is feeling just fine again. Thanks for your prayers!

Time for a post but.....what to post about??

Inspiration is slow.....brain trying to store too much??


So, here are two pictures. They made me smile, maybe you too :-)

Sunday morning-

We had a guest speaker, a friend of our pastor. He's a very interesting speaker and delivered a thoughtful and challenging message. He had props for illustration.....asked for volunteers. Oh no, who would volunteer since the kids had children's church this morning and were not present. Ahh, let that up to my two sons-in-law!!

Lynn and Scott are each wearing a stained shirt under the white robe. It demonstrates how Jesus restores us to be heirs, His sons and daughters! 

The point was very clear, but I couldn't help but giggle. These guys are awesome, but look at Lynn! He looks like he's stuffed in that thing and can't wait to get out!! (Or he's probably roasting hot!!)

Tuesday dinner -
I made a favorite soup for dinner, chicken corn noodle. Sometimes (almost always) Zoe takes a long time to eat. We were all finished and Aidan had some applesauce I also had made for dinner. Zoe wanted some too, of course, but had to be encouraged to keep eating her soup before getting some.

Zoe says, Look what I made with the noodles I dropped....

She spelled Mom!! 
We cracked up! 

Life is interesting. Life is fun. Almost always. 

Sure, we are facing a tough world. We struggle with real life stuff happening right here (unemployment for my hubby, for one). 

But, I never want to miss 
the interesting, 
the fun, 
the amazing,
the beautiful, 
the goodness 

that is all around me. God is good all the time.

God Bless your Wednesday! 
(Haircut for me today, yea!!)
