Merry Christmas Eve!

In My Pond Puppet Book

*I visited my sweet little Eli yesterday!
 I gave him this book. He couldn't have been happier.
*Eli happiest baby alive!!
*Crying makes my eyes burn and headache FOREVER!
*I went to the dollar store yesterday and the shelves
were bare. It was like the world was coming to and end!
*I thought I locked my keys in my car yesterday and
nearly pooped my pants!
*The rear view mirror never lies!
*I hate black heads!
*I have missed the SUN!
All is calm all is bright!
Happy and Merry Christmas Eve!

*I am tired of the snow!
*I got stuck in my drive way last week while heading to work.
*I love a yummy nap!
*While at the store this weekend, I noticed a woman had something I wanted.
I asked her where she found it and she stated. "I'll run and get you a few!"
She reminded me of the joy of tiny thoughtfulnesses!
*I taught my Nef how to say Por Fa Vore!
*My even tinyer Nef thinks he can walk. Stay tiny Eli!
*I ran into a man w/ my cart this weekend..and it wasn't a tiny
run in and it was awkward.
*My brother thinks he is Santa and even looks like the Jolly old Soul!
*If I didn't have to go to Walmart for years, I'd be fine. I think I am over Walmarted!
*I sat by a newly engaged couple in church today...bad idea!
*I wish I could find some church shoes that I loved.
*My darling niece got braces. She looks like a teenaged.
*I hate scrapping my car!
*I love time off work. I wish it paid better!
Happy Christmas!

Crafting w/ a little!

Handprint Christmas Wreath
I laid out all the supplies on the floor
and prompted my little "Nef" to come
and make a craft. He quickly noticed
the green poster board and went for a swim!
He rolled all over it and ran his hands over
the smooth surface. He loved crafting! I didn't
tell him their was more involved. Next time
I'll remember that it's the experience not the
outcome that matters most! I dare say
he loved his swim on the poster board
more then he ever loved swimming lessons!

Imagine war and violence
as the back drop for you childhood.
Imagine fleeing that to a world
of total newness.
Imagine only wanting marbles
 for Christmas!
A group of children who are refugees in the Salt Lake area
have asked for nothing more then marbles this year!
Let's make their days just a little bit better!
Have your children earn marbles for their chores!
Grab a bag while making ANOTHER trip to Walmart!
Use this act as a Family Home Evening Lesson!
Merry Christmas!!
