The Simple Woman's Daybook

For Today, December 14

Outside my window...dark yet aglow with Christmas lights.

am thinking...that I am tired and should go to bed but am so enjoying the quiet right now. 

I am thankful for...so many things/people. God used November to get my attention about all the blessings He has given me.

From the learning room...a lot of learning about Jesus' birth and why he came. We are taking it pretty easy since we are leaving to go visit family on Monday and we have A LOT to do before a 13 hour drive (that includes potty breaks with three kiddos).

From the kitchen...cookie baking time has begun! 

I am wearing...a pink t-shirt my hubby designed for a Disciple Now a couple years ago, and fleece leopard print pajama pants a friend made me for Christmas a few years ago. What a combo right?

I am creating...family traditions that will hopefully be enjoyed years and years from now.

I am going...to bed soon! LOL!

I am reading...Choosing Joy by Nancy DeMoss, and the One Year Bible by God (haha)

I am hoping...for SNOW while we are on vacation in places that have snow :)

I am hearing...silence. Yay!

Around the house...lots of packing, baking, playing, cooking, and trying not to forget about the real reason for the season.

One of my favorite things...my church family - they have blessed me and my family so much and I will never be able to repay or thank them enough. God is good!
A few plans for the rest of the week: pack, bake, pack, clean, bake, clean, pack, pack, pack, bake, clean, clean, clean, bake, pack, pack, pack...

Here is picture I am sharing...

From last year - the one time it snowed! Wish we had a little of this now :)
