Here are the photos I chose for the past week to add to my Project Life album... one photo plus some simple journaling each day for a year. *Love* this project.
A quick early-morning picture of the Christmas tree taken from our kitchen. I love the reflection of the lights on the floor and door frame. Caused me to ponder, "Am I reflecting Him as I go about my simple everyday life here?"
A sneaky shot capturing the youngest boys playing with the Fisher Price nativity set. Most certainly their own creative version of the Biblical account, but fun anyway. Love seeing them enjoy each other so much.
Joshua has been making his own sword and shield, then painting them. If he has any free time I can find him creating something. He ended up painting them some really bright colors later this day. He was so proud of his work.
One of the first really cold mornings we have had here. Joshua went out to help take care of the animals and proudly came back with this ice that he removed from the goats' water bucket. Pretty cool!
I was busy for a minute during school time today and when I turned around to check on the boys I saw this. Josiah was helping Jon read. Moments like this *really* make my day.
This morning I found Timmy hiding and playing under the hassock. When I asked what he was doing he replied, "It's my Christmas house!" That little cutie!
I *wish* I would have taken my camera with me, but I didn't. This evening my parents took Tom and I, plus three of the older children to see "A Christmas Carol" put on by the Kansas City Repertory Theater. It is the 30th year for this production. Never fails to make me cry. If you live in the area and have opportunity to attend, do. You won't regret it. Thanks again, Mom and Dad!
I know that it is not all that important in the whole scheme of things, but if you think of it, please pray. Our oven (both the top and the bottom of our double oven) quit working today! Yikes! And we have so much baking that we planned to do, plus we will be hosting Christmas here. Oh my! The last time I had a problem with our oven the part wasn't available state-side and had to be shipped in from New Zealand (we have a Fisher and Paykell oven). It took a month to arrive. sigh. So we shall see what happens this time. I'll keep you updated, k?
Have a fabulous week!
