Thankful Sunday

another great photo by Sophie

Sunday again. We've had some beautiful weather this week. Sunny and in the forties. Can't ask for better than that for February.

So today I'm thankful for my alarm clock. Besides coffee it's the other thing I could not live without in the mornings.

Playdates and sleepovers!! With the kids out of school and no budget for entertainment, the kids still had fun with their friends this week.

Olivia's new pointe shoes. We have been putting off getting new ones for as long as possible, but dancing in her old ones she can easily get injured. The ones she has been wearing are about eighty dollars and last a few months.OUCH! but yesterday the girl at the store tried a different pair on her as they didn't have her usual in stock and low and behold Livy liked them. They were almost thirty dollars less! So mama LOVED them!

Tylenol! Miss Em is cutting a mouthful of teeth, and Tylenol lets the Princess get a good nights sleep.

Robins! They're back!!! Saw a whole flock of them yesterday. They are a promise that warmer weather is coming.

Lent. It's a time of prayer and fasting. A time to reflect on the forty days of fasting and praying Jesus went through in the desert. It's a time for me to get closer to Jesus. To make more time for prayer.
To walk through these forty days with Jesus by my side, think about the ultimate sacrifice he made for us. To remember out of the darkness comes a brilliant light... Easter! Eternal life for us!

Enjoy your Sunday!
God Bless

Yeah for Tylenol! And what is that pink stuff in the tube that you rub on their gums? Oh, it's been a while.

So glad for the good deal on the shoes.

Yes, another great picture Sophie. Just curious. I was going to write a post on this to get feedback but for now I will ask you. A few months ago, Ella started waking at night (very unusual) and she is still doing it. I have started wondering if it due to her getting a bunch of molars. Was Miss Em having issues at night? I have started with the Tylenol but she is still waking....sigh!!!

I found my old toe shoes. They ARE pretty and they WERE expensive even waaaaaaay back then! It sounds like the kids are having a great time off at home. So good.
