We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Lots of food, fun, family, and friends. ; ) Of course lots of chaos, too. What would holidays be without that?
I was lucky enough to see this cutie along with her sweet mama. Sadie is such a doll! Laura also came over with her two precious boys Braysen and Brock. Oh my goodness I loved loving on those babies.
Just like Hil said, these girls just get me and this really is priceless! So thankful for them.My nieces Allie and Mary helped my mom put up her Christmas tree last week. My mom overheard them talking about putting Reese's picture in the front of the tree. Then they put her rattle close to her, too. Then when they got out the angels they wanted to hang them all around her!
This means so much, and it was so simple. I love their faith and sensitive hearts.
Last night the candle lighting service we've been to the last two years was cancelled due to weather. I was sad but hopefully it will be rescheduled. It's always such a sweet service.
We already had a sitter, and our friends Candy and Kyle had asked us earlier in the day if we wanted to go to a Razorback basketball game so we took them up on their offer! It worked out perfectly.
Today we put up our tree. It's not finished yet but close! Z got the instructions out and told Jason how to put it together. ; )
A few things I want to remember about Z at this phase in his life...
1. The other day he got in trouble for disobeying. He cried and said, "You're hurting my feelings. You're disobeying God!"
Even though it was cute, I had no sympathy.
2. When I do laundry I put Zach's clean clothes on the stairs to take up wheneven we go. It tends to pile up at times, and recently Zach told me, "I'm going to get dressed on the stairs" like that's where his clothes belonged. This morning I found him there getting dressed, too. Sad but funny! It's just life. ; )
At that time I will gather you; at that time I will bring you home.
