Hey, y'all! I hope that you're all having a super blessed Sunday! It's uber cold in our neck of the woods. We even have a wisp of snow covering the ground. But we braved the bitter winds to make it to church. Now, we're home and have settled in with our individual activities, while we wait for my hubby's church meeting to finish and for him to join us for a little lunch. So, while everyone is busy, I thought that I'd pop in here to share this month's Daily Dozen, as inspired by Elizabeth Kartchner.
My hubby is an early riser. It's difficult for him, even on days when he can, to sleep past 6 a.m. I, on the other hand, would rather stay up and get things done at night and sleep in until 8 a.m. Now, most mornings, because we need to get started with school and don't want to be at it all day, I'm up between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m.; but on Saturdays, my hubby gets up with our kiddos and tries to keep everyone quiet, so I can rest a little longer. Well, this Saturday, I never did go back to sleep, but when I did happen to crawl out of bed, the boys had a game of Sorry going...
Kansas City Zoo's gift shop, just this week, after his homeschool program. Well, that little, black guy, with the long nose, to the far right of the photograph above, stirred up quite the commotion. I thought he was a mole. My hubby thought he was a shrew, and Ezekiel thought he was a kiwi bird. So, we had to get online and do our research. As it turns out, we were all wrong. It's a spiny anteater or echidna. Who knew ;)?!
Lowe's Build-and-Grow Clinic.
Target, to pick up a birthday present for my niece. If you get her anything at Justice, she'll probably be happy; but other than that, she's a little tough to shop for. She's turning eleven-years-old, and my sister thought she'd like something to go on her bedroom walls. Well, I found the perfect, precious, little trio of pastries. They even matched her room perfectly, but they were way out of our budget, and I wasn't sure if the glass fronts would travel, through the mail, safely. So, we ended up getting her a gift card to pick out whatever she pleases, as well as jeans for my hubby; a tank, because we had a coupon, for Adina; shampoo for me; toothbrushes for Ezekiel (That boy goes through more toothbrushes than I ever thought possible!); more paints for both of my kiddos; and a plug out organizer, from the dollar spot, just because it's exactly what we needed to keep all those electronic devices up off the floor in a house with few outlets.
December Daily Dozen pics have been put into this week's Sketches in Thyme two-pager. Can't wait to share it with you all! Until then, thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful and restful remainder to your weekend! Hugs!
