Thank you so much to all of the new participants in this week's photography challenge. It warms my heart to look at your photos. I haven't had time to comment on every single one, but I have looked at them and I will be back by again soon to leave a comment :)
Apparently my "love language" is getting gifts. The hubs came home with a package of peppermint chocolates that I'd seen an ad for on TV - they are SO good!
Yesterday was a big first for me. I choreographed a dance for the upcoming Christmas play at church. This was totally out of my comfort zone and I was scared to death. In fact I had so much nervous energy waiting for the dancer and her mom to come to my house that I cleaned my house all afternoon! It went really well and we got the dance choreographed in just over an hour! I haven't danced in over twelve years, but it was awesome to do it again. It just goes to show you - it's best to not make decisions based on fear. If I'd listened to my fear I wouldn't have been able to help out a friend or had this great experience! Since there weren't huge piles of laundry in the background I took some cute photos of little man while we were making lunch!
I don't usually cry when my kids hurt me. You know as a parent that getting hurt is par for the course, I get scratched, jabbed and generally abused nearly every day and it doesn't bother me. But last night when little man accidentally poked me in my eye I bawled like a baby. I was tired and stressed out and I guess that his accident was the last straw. While I was sitting there on the couch crying, my oldest daughter came and put her arm around me and just sat with me until I got myself together again. It felt so backwards to be the one being comforted by my child, since I'm usually the one doing the comforting - but it was a really sweet moment too.
Today's giveaway is Toy Story 3 on DVD
It is my son's all-time favorite movie and if you have a little one at home or in your life this would make a wonderful Christmas present!
