5 on Friday
Linking up with the Good Life blog and others:
1) Last weekend, after a particularly difficult loss, Kyle talked me into going out to eat (it wasn't a hard sell). Financially we probably should not have gone to a restaurant, but neither of us felt like cooking so we went. As we were eating our meal the patrons at the table next to use paid and got up to leave. The woman approached our table and told us they had a gift card with money remaining and they wanted to give it to us! That "leftover" money paid for my meal and the kid's meal. It was such a surprise blessing and a good reminder of how great it is to bless others! It just might make their day!
2) This week I worked my last contract job of the year. Those jobs are such a blessing, but it will be nice to have a break from "work" and be able to focus on my priorities and the true meaning of Thanksgiving and Christmas.
3) This week we also had our 1st snow! The kids awoke to a few inches on the ground and it continued to snow throughout the morning. They LOVED looking out the window as the snow fell. Finally when Daddy came home for lunch Sawyer couldn't contain his excitement anymore. He HAD to go play in the snow. Thankfully, Kyle was a good sport and they all suited up and headed outside for some snowman building and snow ball throwing. Not only did they both have a blast, but it resulted in a prolonged nap, which made it a win-win for all parties :)
4)I've been sewing like a mad woman, which means 'tis the season for Christmas gifts. If you are in need of teacher, hostess or neighbor gifts check out my Etsy shop, Fresh Regard. You may find the perfect gift!
5)I haven't been very good at keeping up with football updates. Not sure when I did the last one....This weekend is the final game of the season. Football season is always fun, but by the final game we are all ready for it to be over. This year is no exception. It will be nice to have some Saturday's as a family :) Here are a few pictures from last week's game. We had some press box fun.
