November 15 – A last minute girls’ night invite and actually accepting it….
No photo, but after a ridiculously long Thursday, so thankful for a friend who invited me to come hang out for a bit.
November 16 – A long drawn out date with my favorite….
Budget talks over margaritas, laughing long at the Tim Hawkins show, and discussing life and the future over dessert. After a long month of busy and gone, this was just what my heart needed.
November 17 – Tank tops in mid-November and a clean garage….
So thankful for time as a family to clean out our bordering-on-a-Hoarders-intervention garage and a beautiful day to boot.
I could post a picture of all of our junk…but I think I’ll just leave that to everyone’s imagination.
November 18 – A little girl and a long sheet of bubble wrap….
Oh the joy of bubble wrap. Especially when it’s outside.
November 19 – For so much….
Another non-photo day, but still….
For a daughter who helps me at the grocery store when I’m dragging through sick, the week of Thanksgiving. For another daughter who puts dinner in the crock pot while I’m away. For the kind people at TJ Maxx who didn’t charge us for the $70 Le Crueset dish a certain child broke while scouring the racks for my favorite coffee. For a husband who sends me to bed early. For a warm drink as I snuggle under covers. And for a long night of sleep to help me recover.
November 20 – Crazy science experiments that entertain for hours and color foils for all the girls….
November 21 – Girlie buffet lunches and Thanksgiving feasting Part I (complete with princess dress up)…
I’ve been told boys don’t eat like this for lunch, but we loved it….
November 22 – A holiday at home and a heart that overflows “thanks”….
Again, no photo from yesterday, but so thankful for this holiday at home every year. What a gift it is to us to have a day to make our own traditions (and to have extra time to digest all of the Thanksgiving goodness before another feast this weekend). A late brunch and soup for dinner. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade on television and The Odd Life of Timothy Green at the cheap theater. We did notice that our holiday tradition of seeing a movie on Thanksgiving Day has given us adoption-themed movies the past two years (Kung Fu Panda 2 last year), neither of which we knew were adoption-themed before we ever saw them.
Caught up for now; more to come tomorrow.
For His Glory ~
One thought on “A Grateful Catching Up….”
I loved reading this post, and all the pics that went with. Though, my stomach sunk at the TJMaxx part. So glad they didn’t charge you! Yikes.
