Lunch Date

     I had a lunch date with one of the cutest little boys I know today. We went to Chick-fil-A, and had chicken nuggets, waffle fries, and sweet tea. Lucas made a friend in the play area. He was a little younger than Lucas, but they played great together. He followed Lucas everywhere, and did what Lucas wanted to do. Lucas ate that up. Being the little brother, he normally does the following. When we left, Lucas went back to say goodbye and the little boy gave him the biggest hug. It was so sweet!

AWANA Rodeo Night

Lucas's Thanksgiving Feast

     This morning for the first time ever, I went to a school Thanksgiving Feast, and was able to focus solely on my child. It was so refreshing. Lucas told me all about his day as we were eating. And Lucas actually ate pretty well. He ate things he tells me are yucky at home. They made the cutest place mats that included words his teachers used to described him. Ms. Pat said Lucas is obedient, fun, good listener, hard worker, and friendly. Ms. Christy said Lucas is sweet, good listener, enthusiastic, courteous, and easy-going. After the feast, I brought Lucas home with me for a couple of hours together because Logan gets home. I'm thankful for my lil Lucas and our time together. I'm thankful for UME because they gave me this time back with my family.

First Fire

     When we moved into this house over eight years ago, one of the things I was excited about was the fireplace. We didn't have one in the house I grew up in, and I always wanted one. I was so excited about the fireplace, but then we never had it swept or checked, so we didn't use it. This morning Joshua had someone come out, sweep, and check it. So tonight we are enjoying our first fire. I think the boys are just as excited as I am.

Operation Christmas Child

     This year Logan packed his Operation Christmas Child box at AWANA. He loved packing his box with his friends!

     Lucas was a little disappointed that he didn't pack his box with his Cubbie friends, but he quickly got over that disappointment when I told him we could by ourselves to buy things to fill his box.

     Operation Christmas Child is one of our favorite traditions, and it helps us get in the thankful and giving spirit.

First Snow

     We are having our first snow flurries of the season tonight. It's really early for us, but the boys were loving it when we got them out of bed to go outside and see the snow. I'm thankful for the flurries and the fun little memory made with the boys tonight!
