Ecclesiastes 5:18

"...Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8

This is my place to come to help me to 'think on these' wonderful things in my life!

"Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, that is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life." Ecclesiastes 5:18

I am so thankful that I can enjoy the life God has given us with my husband and our children!

Crescent Dough - homemade!

My first attempt at crescent dough! Thanks to my friend
for the recipe :) It's here at the bottom of this page:

it was MUCH easier than I thought! This was the first time
that I attempted crescent dough

Roll it out...pat it with a....

Make mini pizza slices...these are too thick. Next time I will
roll the dough out even thinner and roll even more loosely.

But - the family all gave it the 'better than Pillsbury' stamp of approval!! :)

Kayleigh lost her 3rd tooth!

wiggling here... the next day it was on her toothbrush after
brushing :)

Zoe knew how to address the envelope so she helped Kayleigh

the back of the decorated envelope...clearly states:
"The Tooth Fairy Rocks" over the drawing of the girl on
the right ;)
And a cute note inside ! something like this:
"I have no cavities, here's my tooth. Take it."
Short and sweet!

What happens when you leave a little girl alone
with a very submissive puppydog? You are
lookin at it.

Yup, that would be tape over the pencil...

Because Kayleigh said that the point kept falling out....

Ice cream time!

Christa and mommy had some 'special Christa
and mommy time' while the older two
had gymnastics. We had an ice cream cone -
and Christa is *very* good at managing those! -
and then played a bit :) Daddy even joined us
for a few minutes!

My girls like shopping, sometimes :) Lookin'
a bit cute here, I think this was right before
the entire bottle of wine got accidentally
knocked to the ground by the 3 yo (at the time
she was 3) or maybe that was another store? All
the grocery trips begin to run together, lol!
