1. A highlight of the holidays was getting to hang out with my bff since 4th grade and her family. We get to see each other maybe once a year but always when we see each other we step right back into life together. That’s how you know you are close friends. We still know what each other is thinking. We are ok with silence when we are together, although we are pretty much talking non stop. It warmed my heart to see the instant connection our kids had with one another and us with each others kids. I’m thankful for the time we had together. Looking forward to the next time already. Here are some pics…
3. My friend Amie, who I mentioned above introduced us to the Magic Tree house series. It’s a series of stories about Jack and Annie and who go on these great adventures together as they read books. I’ve been enjoying reading these books aloud to the kids and have been surprised how well the books keep the kids attention.
4. Clementines are my latest obsession. We all love to eat these sweet juicy little fruits. Like the girls eat 3 a day each! Quick, easy and healthy snacks. Have you noticed the cute little crate these babies come in? I know my obsession with crate continues. But how can you not love miniature crates! I’m collecting these for some sort of organizing for our new house. Love!
5. I came across this blog this week and wanted to pass it along. Moneysavingmom.com has all kinds of goodies and helpful hints for any family. This week I downloaded the audio version of Jerry Bridges Pursuit of Holiness. Score! I think it is still available. If you are interested, click here.
