Day 12: I am thankful for fun family times on little day trips!
Eight hours in the car + five hours shopping = one happy, tired family!
Day 13: I am so thankful for the independence and responsibilities these three sweeties can handle!
Sunday nights we host a small group of young married couples in our home--a.k.a. no kids allowed. At 7:00, our kids are responsible to take showers, get their pajamas on, brush their teeth, pick up their toys, read a Bible story, pray together, and get themselves in bed. (all without too much noise!) They have done this so amazingly well for the last nine weeks! At the end of the evening when our guests leave, I always look at Cody just stunned that our children were able to accomplish such tasks with no problems and no conflicts. We both are so thankful that they are willing to participate in this way in the ministry we are having with young couples! Okay...enough mama bragging! :)
Day 14: I am SO thankful for Christmas music!
Say what you will, you naysayers out there...you obviously haven't heard The David Crowder Band's new Christmas CD Oh For Joy!
Get it. Crank it. Love it.
