Full of thanks...

The kids have been hard at work preparing for Thanksgiving.

I love filling our home with reminders to be thankful...

...and the colours of the season.

I seriously questioned my sanity when making these
"Pumpkins of Praise". Finding crafts to that all
three kids can do together can be a bit challenging.

When we were in the midst of glue, paint, and scissors
- and a 20 month old who was adamant he could do
everything by himself -
I definitely wasn't feeling very full of praise.

But as I wrote the words "Thank you God for..."
across the leaves, and looked up to see Levi's shining eyes
and smile of delight, and was reminded how truly
thankful I am.

:: For kitchen tables covered with crafty praise
:: For beautiful hands and happy faces sticky with glue and paint

:: For Silas who, for now, still thinks his Mom and Dad are
pretty cool cats

:: And our precious daughter,
who knows exactly where
a thankful heart begins.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
1 Peter 1:3
