This {morning}


giving baths to 3

hosting two overnight guests

cooking eggs, pancakes, toast

serving 4 plus a puppy

wiping toast crumbs off the black counter top

taking the puppy out for the third time

cleaning up shredded newspapers

phone calls to the parents of the overnight guests

finally eating my breakfast right before I fix lunch

visiting with a grandparent

making plans for this afternoon

mediating a quarrel

mediating another quarrel

and another one...

getting Ava ready to go to a birthday party (in her pajamas!)

confiscating markers

trimming nails

finding shoes

{on my mind}

missing Alec while he's at a sleepover

wondering if my friend is still pregnant

wishing I was working out instead of cleaning the kitchen

thinking about how good I've felt the past two days not eating any grain

hoping Marvin will get home early from work so we can have some family time

wondering if God will give us another baby

telling myself that winter really is a beautiful time of year

remembering that I need to take my Project 365 picture for the day

reciting our memory verse for the week in my head when I'm tempted to complain

remembering I need to mail out birthday invitations

can't believe Benji is turning 7 already!

sad as a friend picks Ava up to take her to the party...my little girl is so grown up!

thanking God for so many blessings, 
sometimes coming in the form of hard work and opportunities to be joyful always!

I love your lists- a little glimpse into your day. Wish you could've been there last night and this morning, but maybe we can go to lunch together sometime soon, just the two of us. :)

LOVED talking to you yesterday!

First time visitor. Your children are beautiful. I love the daily insights to our lives.

Love getting a peek into your day and also knowing I'm not the only one hearing siblings quarrel! :) Did you get my e-mail last week? I am worried I may have the wrong address. No need to hurry, just curious if I have the right e-mail. Miss your chats! Have a great week!
