The kids and I are loosely following along with the Joy Dare that Ann Voskamp does. I say loosely, because I never finish anything.
But we’ve got the December dares on the fridge and we’re keeping our eyes open for things that we are grateful for this month.
Three Gifts Shining.
(please excuse the cell phone picture – I was too lazy to get the real camera out…)
Truxton and Kinsley both thought of the Christmas tree. Having a Christmas tree in the living room is pretty much the single most exciting thing these guys can imagine. Does it really get any more cozy than that?
Gillian thought of our candles.
Those are supposed to be advent candles there in the middle, but, uh, someone forgot that there were supposed to be five when she bought them. Also, the afore mentioned someone had intended to come up with some clever way of denoting the first three as lavender and the fourth as pink, and has yet to do so.
And Sophie, never one to be hindered by what she can actually see at the moment, thought of the stars.
