And, to be honest, I'm pretty excited about Black Friday Shopping. Last year I headed out at 8pm and got home sometime around 8 am. But I loved every minute of it. I love shopping. And I think it's a great opportunity to #1 save some money on Christmas shopping, but #2 Be a good Christlike example in a situation where we hear so much about fighting and arguing and so on. I saw this pin on pinterest and I had to chuckle... Let it be known that I've never trampled anyone for a sale! Pinned here.
1. Number 1 has to be Emmy's Thanksgiving program. She did such a good job singing and I was super impressed with her teacher being able to get her to actually put face paint and a feathered headband on!
2. My living room is painted! I love it. It's such a nice change. It really does feel like a totally different space.
3. Last night the girls and I made biscuit pizzas for dinner. It wasn't on the menu until today, but it just sounded good last night. I realized as I was pulling all the ingredients out of the fridge that I had very little mozzarella cheese. Oh well, we used cheddar and american instead and they were still great.
5. This one is going to be somewhat abstract... but I'm thankful for change. Even if it's hard. It's a continual reminder that I'm alive and God has given me another day. The last few weeks have been difficult, but God is faithful. And I know that in a perfect world situations and circumstances could be changed with the snap of a finger. But, if that were the case every time, we'd never learn things about God, ourselves, and each other.
Have a good weekend!
