Christmas morning (since I wasn't manning the camera I couldn't keep myself in my bathrobe out of it - sorry about that! :0)
Special Christmas breakfast - we sing Happy Birthday at breakfast and blow out a candle - fun for the little ones.
Outside my window..Shiny, silvery rain drops hanging on the bare branches of my maple tree
I am thinking...about how to best be a helpmeet for my husband
I am thankful for... my wonderful family, I am richly blessed
From the learning rooms...continuing our units on mountains and England, math and writing
From the kitchen...today it's chicken and dumplings - going to start stewing the chicken when I'm done with this
I am wearing...Denim skirt, pink and grey shirt, slippers
I am creating...still working on the embroidery part of my Christmas gifts
I am going...to the craft store this evening (I hope) to pick up supplies for the gift I thought of to make my husband. Also to pick up the things I need to finish making some of the kids gifts. They also have great stocking stuffers there!!!
I am reading...John Adams.
I am hoping...That handmade gifts this year will be meaningful and also be a positive impact on the budget. I am also hoping to get a few decorations up this week.
I am hearing...quiet voices of the kids - they are busy creating something in their room.
Around the house...Just basic tidying. I would really like to get the windows and curtains washed before the Christmas tree is put up. That job was supposed to be done before baby arrived but since she surprised us with her early appearance we are trying to get it done now :0)!!
One of my favorite things...quiet mornings when everyone is cheerfully doing their tasks - like today:0)!!
A few plans for the rest of the week...Write down all the kids clothes sizes - Grandpa is taking me shopping for them on Saturday - He likes me to pick out clothes for them. Get lots more work done on my gifts. Make a few lists so I can relax and be organized - I'm a list girl - I function so much better if I put my brain down on paper:0)
Here is picture thought I am sharing... what the kids are praying for every night when they go to bed!!!
