Thursday (Night) Daybook

Outside my window … our neighbors' Christmas lights across the street. They did a beautiful job, and it thrills the kids every night to look at them.

I am thinking … how funny is The Office! Love it!!

I am thankful for … the unseasonably warm weather today. We had a chance to play outside and go for a puddle and worm walk.

I am reading At Some Disputed Barricade (still) but added The Shack by William P. Young (a recommendation from Kerry, which Shawn highly enjoyed).

I am hoping … that this does not turn into a winter of illness. Just when everyone was finally healthy, now Violet ran a 102-104 fever all day.

On my mind … what should I eat for a snack?

We’re learning … about the salvation story and how to prepare for Christmas in our hearts.

Noticing that … it's time for a trim.

Pondering these words … "A person's a person, no matter how small." --Dr. Seuss

From the kitchen … gearing up for Christmas baking. Today I made a Banana-Pecan Coffee Cake. A new recipe for me - two thumbs up!

Around the house … we traditionally decorate for Christmas on the First Sunday of Advent, so we have enjoyed our tree, Advent wreath, and Nativity this week. Now we need to work on our village.

One of my favorite things … when I am nursing Violet, and Clare snuggles up with us. She rubs Violet's head and says, "Hey there, little fella." (Where does she come up with this stuff?)

A picture I am sharing ...

I was scrapping photos from last summer and found this one! In so many ways, Clare is such a girly-Princess-girl. And then she's not...

I love this idea of the daybook. Thank you so much for sharing. I think it is funny that we both are pondering Dr Suess themes... I love the picture of Clare! I think these little bits help me to get to know you better.
