We've been in the week-end craft mode lately. I found some cute cards, some wonderful sayings, and made an encouragement treasure bucket for my friend.
For my other friend, I painted a glass jar, wrote quotes, and sayings on individual colored pieces. Her Jar of Hope.
Addyson's birthday is coming up and we are planning her first large birthday party. Today, we made invitations, fabulatized them, and took our "Invitation Walk" around the neighborhood, passing out said invitations to her friends. She'd ring the doorbell, hand her friend the envelope, and then she was off to the next home. She's into the whole peace, flower power look, so we're gonna rock the ice-skating rink out in flower power fashion.
Austin is absolutely lovin' his cub scouts. He's sold popcorn, visited the police station, been to Super Games, and is so stinkin' cute in his uniform. He's my "follow what's on the calendar" guy! I forgot to write "Brunch for Lunch" on the calendar this week. So, when he got to school without his lunchbox, he was totally upset. When I got home, he made sure to inform me that I needed to write it on our calendar.
I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. Fabulous food, family fun, and time...time to listen, time to talk, and time to celebrate our gratefulness for the lives we've been given. I'm grateful for so many things. What are you grateful for these days?
