Gratitude #46

I am grateful that they like to be read to.  At least Kaiden does and he loves to go to the library.  Trevin is more interested in grabbing the pages, but I hope he will enjoy story time as much as his brother.

Graitude #45

I am grateful he likes to help in the kitchen.  He broke these eggs into the bowl last week for scrambled eggs.  Last Sunday he came over after church and I started making breakfast.  He ran into the kitchen and said do you need a helper.  And of course, I did.

Gratitude #44

I am grateful I work for a company who opens our annual meeting with a prayer.  Even this year - after being sold to a large international company taking many of the decisions out of the hands of the local leadership.

Gratitude #41

I am grateful for Carrie and Tito cleaning the house on Friday while I was at work.  It was nice not to have to do that on Saturday morning along with all the other things that need to be done every weekend.  Thank you so much.

Eight Months

Trevin is eight months old today and though he has been a little cranky lately because he is cutting teeth, he is a happy little boy.  He has just started crawling backwards, but I am sure he will get the hang of it and be all over the place before long.

Mary Had a Little Lamb

Kaiden helped me place the figures in the nativity before Christmas.  As we unwrapped each piece, I would tell him their part in the story.  We had placed a lamb just prior to unwrapping Mary.  I told him Mary was Jesus' mother.  He looked at me and said and she had a little lamb also! 

As you can see by the picture, Kaiden thought all the people should be looking at Jesus.  I would rearrange, but he would put them back the next time he was at the house.

I finally stopped and realized all the people should be looking at Jesus!

Gratitude #40

I am grateful Kaiden called me at work today (with Tito's help) and asked if he could stay for supper.  Of course, I said yes.

Gratitude #39

I am grateful that Tito is getting better after his fall last week.  He still has to see the orthopedic surgeon, but is able to put weight on his leg again and they took the stitches out of his lip.  He still looks like he was in a bar fight and lost, but is progressing nicely.

Gratitude #38

Today I am grateful for Sunday afternoon naps.  I was never happy when my parents would take a nap on Sunday afternoons because I wanted to do something - take a drive, visit cousins, play games, go on a picnic - anything but take a nap.  I just couldn't understand why they would want to take a nap.  I understand now.
