I was introduced to Ann Voskamp from a blogger friend Leslie Tally at Tally Tales. I'm so thankful for that introduction. Ann blogs here...
This year I'm also embarking on seeing the beauty the Lord has given us with writing down 1,000 gifts. On Ann's website (I write like I know her) :) you can find a specific list of what to look for each day, but for me, I'm just looking for God's blessings, in my husband, kids, the beauty that surrounds us in nature, other friends and strangers. Anything I feel moved to say... wow, that's God at work, I'm writing it down.
I picked up this little notebook at Michael's for 50 cents in a clearance bin. He's perfect!
We've also been play a lot of UNO. I mean A LOT, like every day, sometimes two or three times a day. What I love is that we can all play. Even our youngest can play. And let me tell you, that girl has beat me probably 10 times. No JOKE! The kicker is she plays FACE UP. That means I can see her cards and all her moves and she still wins! I know you're thinking I let her win, but that's not the case, at all! I'm really trying to beat her.
So tonight, our middle had her friend, Cinderella, join our game. At one point Cinderella had 17 cards!
One day I will get her, one day. But today was not that day. :)
ps... I DO NOT like how the UNO cards have changed. They are mostly pictures and NO words anymore. Those Wild cards you see are the only ones with words anymore. As a teacher I say... PUT THE WORDS BACK ON THEM because I can teach my kiddos what those words say. UGH!
I also have issues with the money tray on Monopoly, but I will save that for another post. :)
From our BROWN eyes to yours...
