So what am I thankful for – Well basically every tootin’ thing.
I ended up staying home from church today with a sick child but being cooped up in the house wasn’t all that bad of a thing. I was able to spend a few hours and play with my water color pencils again. What do ya think of my active family?
And my dream cabin with clothes line and tire swing?
I was thinking of doing a cute blog cover that included our whole family pulling Santa’s Sleigh but I’m not going to press myself because there are so many other things to do. So if this picture stays up for the rest of the year at least I tried to put the Christmas star in the top corner.
Lea was sweet and took some pictures of me doing my thing. Outlining my sketch and then...
Coloring it in. Notice my nice messy hair!
And while I was doing mommy fun the girls painted some pictures of their own. Princess is drawing in the background. They were tickled pink because I let them use my water color pencils, but only with my supervision. Otherwise they are off limits.
It rained today – all day- and pretty hard at times. So I decided to be crazy!
I tried to talk the kids into doing this with me.
But it was cold and they wanted to watch the New Tinker Bell Movie. That and they really think I’m nuts sometimes.
Regardless I went outside and…
In the Rain.
And yes it was cold but now I can say that I’ve danced in the rain. Barefoot mind you.
Yes I am a wee bit bonkers but it was kind of fun.
This week for my Christmas Countdown.
1. I’m nailing down the budget. And since Budget is a dirty word for me I’ll rephrase and evaluate our money and its in and out patterns and see if there isn’t a way to make a memorable holiday with no extra debt.
2. I’m also going to try and finish my Christmas cards. Not mail them mind you but fill them out.
3. That and I’ve got to clean-up my Halloween mess and painting-day-off mess.
But most importantly I’m going to focus on gratitude. Here are some other blogs that are doing similar Thankful focuses.
