Okay, so we only had flurries, but it still snowed! Carter was so excited. :) I tried to explain to him that before long the snow will be taller than him, but he didn't understand! I can't wait till he sees it. Ashlyn remembers it from before, but he can't yet! I love watching them learn new things! This will be our first winter with REAL snow! Lots of Big, Deep Snow! Can you tell I'm really excited!
What a wonderful Sunday we had! Our small group had the opportunity to collect food for some well deserving families for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Sunday was our delivery day. I can definitley say the Blessing was all mine! What a joy it was for us to see their graciousness and their loving spirits when receiving this food! It truly is more blessed to give than receive! I hope you all have a wonderful Turkey Day! I can't wait to spend time relaxing, cooking, and most importantly Eating!!
Well after an exhausting 26 hours in the car for our weekend, we are back! We had a whirlwind trip, but it was so much fun and we were so blessed to get to see so many people. Our next trip we'll have ton more to see, so hopefully it won't be too long before we get back down there. One thing we did do was drive by our old house! Oh, HOW SAD! I know I had awful thoughts! Some of those were...How dare they plant POTTED FERNS :( in MY yard! My Begonias were there! And things like " I Want to See what THEY did to my house (inside)" Is this possessiveness normal? Ashlyn really wanted to go back to her room, but it belongs to someone else! Oh what wonderful memories in that home! But we've already had lots of wonderful memories in our new home as well as God will give us tons more!
Tomorrow I and the kids will be leaving on a whirlwind trip to visit Richard's grandmother and as many friends and family along the way! Pray for our safe travels to and from and for my sanity driving with three small children! Thank you again Lord for portable DVD players! And a funny story while I'm typing....Ashlyn and Carter have really been bickering for the last three or four days. Nothing Richard and I say or do " ;) " has really stopped them, so last night before bed they started arguing and as Carter is prone to do, started swinging at Ashlyn. Ashlyn loves to egg Carter on and before long tattled on her aggressive little Brother! So, as Daddy had had enough, he told Ashlyn that if Carter hit her again to just hit him back. As soon as the words came out of Richard's mouth, Carter was instantly afraid and stopped hitting Ashlyn. We thought this had ended the argument/fight. Boy, were we wrong! In the tiniest little voice, we hear from our four year old..." Carter, don't you want to hit me again?" Oh, the reasoning of children! God love 'em!
