For Today!

I saw this outline from my friend Jenn's blog
I thought is was creative so I copied and added my stuff in!


Outside my window...   It is a beautiful day, cold but the sun is shining!  Leaves are falling and the wind is blowing...We have a friends car I can see outside my window, so thankful for friends that let us borrow a car while ours is broken.  

I am thinking...  About what else I need to finish cooking before dinner.

I am thankful for... My Hubby who walks in joy and humility.  Who serves and loves his family and others so well!  I am thankful to have Him and my little ones to celebrate with today!  I'm thankful for friends who call and check on us and pray with us when we are having a rough time.  I'm thankful for our families in Seattle and that they care enough about us to send packages with love.  I'm thankful to be saved and to be walking with the Lord.  I'm thankful to be living the dream I always hoped for, being a wife and Mom!  (of course it looks different but it is a blessing)

From the learning rooms... Samuel is learning his letters and tracing them a lot better now.  He loves to count too.  He is hungry to learn.  Trinity is learning how to be a Mommy, she walks around with her babies and her purse-so cute!  She is learning her ABC's too.  Esther is talking more and asks "read a boot" which means read a book.  She use to not be interested in books so this makes me happy that she likes them now.  And of course she snuggles with me when I read to her.

From the kitchen... I'm making my first Turkey breast in the crock pot, making home made stuffing, home made rolls, my first apple pie(I had some already!), garlic mash potatoes, and sweet potato casserole.  Missing my favorite green bean casserole because I forgot to buy green beans and now the store is closed, oops.

I am wearing...  Blouse and jeans.  My usual is T-shirt and jeans thought I would dress a little nicer for my Hubby since it is a holiday.

In Pregnancy news...  I'm probably only 3 weeks a long but so excited!  That is the talk around the house.  Samuel says I need to eat for the baby and that we are going to have the baby in Bethlehem.  Trinity prays for the baby her prayer is "Jesus help the baby Amen", Esther pats my belly and say "be be".  Thinking it might be a long 9 months for them to have to wait, but it is sweet to see them so excited!

I am creating... Lots of goodies for Samuel's fishy party on Saturday, super excited!

I am going... to have a second cup of coffee soon, exhausted these days!
I am reading... "Raising kids who hunger for God" by Benny and Sheree Phillips.  I need all the wisdom I can get!

I am hoping... it snows soon, I figure if it is going to be this cold it might as well snow.
I am hearing... kids squealing in there beds.
Around the house... It is clean for now only because it is nap time!
One of my favorite things...Date nights, I love one on one time with my Hubby!
A few plans for the rest of the week:  Turkey dinner tonight, Samuel's party Saturday, dear friends are in town for a visit this weekend, towing the car on Monday and hopefully it will be fixed on Tuesday.

Ending with a Picture...

Thankful for you all, have a blessed Thanksgiving!
