As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Thanksgiving Break full of gifts...

153.  a CLEAN house!  I made a list for eah day, Sat-Tues, and I am sitting here now in a clean from top to bottom house with NO laundry to be done.  I LOVE IT!

154.  Christmas cookies

Sarah's rendition of our family, in sugar cookie

155.  little girls with frosting on their faces....
 because they did this!
 156. the way Hannah has grown to take pride in her work (and I know she needs a haircut, but she insists that she will keep it out of her eyes)
 157.  Christmas smelling candles
 158.  getting out the Christmas books
 159. seeing Josh pull into the driveway

160. that first hug
161.  holding hands around the dinner table and saying the blessing
162.  having too many people in the living room to sit comfortably--I'll take a smushy hour of television watching if I'm being smushed by those I love!
163.  my swiffer wet jet....oh how I love it!
164. thrift shopping with Sarah
165.  the sound of rain in the chimney

so much to be thankful for!
