"make it your ambition to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you,
so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody."

--1 thessalonians 4: 11-12

i'm dreaming of a crafty christmas

my baby is feverish.
i'm used to getting up at 6,
but guess who has been up since max woke up at 5?
yes, that would be me.
it's not a big deal,
i'm just very thankful that i am not
out with the crazies shopping this morning.

instead, i was guzzling coffee
and pinning like crazy.
i came across several good quotes
this morning, but one really stuck out
and i decided it needed to go on my fridge.

a 10 minute "craft",
and a reminder to live a life of thanks,
not just give  thanks for my blessings.

but what i'm really excited about is christmas.
we usually buy ornaments every year, but 
1. most of them are cheesy.
2. none are one of a kind.
3. they're expensive.

why settle, i say!

here is what i'm thinking:

glitter cookie cutter ornaments



christmas in a jar


snowy balloon ornaments

I love you quote of the day! I OFTEN times have moments with Mason that test me and then I remember how much we prayed for him and how long we waited. Then I just smile and hold him though his fits.

ps we should have a craft party!
