Random Ramblings

We are still here... just very very very busy lately. 
Finishing up the bathroom remodel....
I'll give you the full effect when its all done next week... I'm jealous :)
Helped Nana decorate her Christmas tree... and packed up our box for Operation Christmas Child.
It's a wonderful project for kids to learn about giving rather than getting... still not to late to do it this year!
Then we did our house... not the tree yet, we will get a live one the first week in December, 
I'll show you that soon too... here is one more of my moms... I love her house, especially that door.
I'm starting to feel the warm fuzziness of the holidays... I love it!
And it causes me to have an urge to bake... this week it was snickerdoodles!!!
I must learn to control myself, I am so weak... but they are soooo yummy...
See Jack stalking the cookie?
Daniel often gives him bites when we aren't looking.

We did find a little time to hang out at home too....
this is what happened when I asked Tommy to give Daniel a book after his nap while I finished peeling some potatoes for this awesome soup...
That's just about the whole bookshelf there... Thanks Tommy.... very helpful....
This is what I found later that day after about ten minutes of unsettling quiet... Bella put him down for a nap...
 Looks super comfy doesn't it?
 
If you are the praying sort... please pray for the pace of life here to let up just a little bit so that hopefully sometime soon I can organize some more eloquent thoughts for you all.... 
and so I don't lose my mind entirely....

Pish Tosh!! Eloquent has it's place i'm sure, but i'd much rather see these down to earth at home stories!! Jack stalking Daniel's cookie, Tommy's generosity in giving Daniel a book to look at..hahaahaha... too funny!!! Izzy making Tommy take a nap in her doll's pack n play! hahaha (and he's so co-operative)...not to mention decorating the tree at Nana's...what wonderful memories for them and her...i love the one where you can see Tommy off to the side looking at it in AWE! not to mention the next one where Daniel is looking in the box to see what's next! PRICELESS....and last but not least Tom working in the bathroom while Daniel is observing and learning with "bottle" in hand! hahaha You are so Blessed, and yes i am the "praying sort" and do pray for you guys everyday and will do so forever...
i LOVE your "at home" blogs and they usually make my day...it's a good day when i wake up and SURPRISE, another blog has appeared over night!! i can almost always count on a good laugh to start my day!! Love you all, and am praying for the Snickerdoodle situation too! :) xoxo AJ
