I am thankful...that my cousin has found a wonderful man & that they will be married in February.
From the learning rooms...taking a break today, then trying to spend the next few weeks on the "Four R's" - Reading, 'riting, 'rithmetic, & religion. The rest of the time we can focus on Advent activities.
From the kitchen...leftover turkey w/ Amish noodles for dinner this evening
I am wearing...light blue cotton PJ top w/ my blue, purple, & white plaid bottoms, w/ a throw blanket draped around my shoulders
I am creating...I'm trying to find a new blog template for Christmas, but haven't found one that jumps out at me yet.
I am going...to start cutting back on my computer time! I spend WAY too much time on here.
I am reading...Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis (read aloud for the munchkins & one of my favorites from the series), My Dearest Cecilia by Diane Haeger (based on the legend that General Sherman's love for this woman is why he spared her hometown of Augusta), & I Surrender by my dear friend Judy Dudich.
I am hoping...that we can get our Christmas shopping done soon. We are a lot further behind than usual at this time of year.
I am hearing...the boys playing w/ their Ninjago Lego sets on the floor next to me.
Around the house...Fall decorations are down & Christmas ones will be going up w/in the next week or so
One of my favorite things...that first sip of coffee in the morning!
A few plans for the rest of the week...school, "Mom Therapy," The Archangel's psychiatrist appointment, family choir practice at church for Christmas
Here is a picture or two I am sharing...Thanksgiving Day - Casinodad's dad came for a visit & we had this family photo taken while he was here
