This, That, and the Other

THIS movie:

I won a copy of CHRISTMAS LODGE from another blog … and last night we had a chance to watch it.  While the plot is incredibly predictable, it was nice to just sit down with my entire family (even my husband and son!) to watch a movie that was rated G so we didn’t have to worry about its content.   This movie actually included prayer, the Bible, and discussions about accepting God’s will … and at the end, we all sighed at how lovely it ended (well, not literally, but it WAS a happy ending). 

Even better was that the folks I won this movie from have accepted me to review other family, faith-based products starting in January – and many will include GIVE AWAYS!!  🙂 

2.  THAT isn’t all there is to share on my blog – but in keeping it short, I will share that Monday I finished my Christmas shopping, and Tuesday my kids and I went to a Christmas party at a friend’s house and had a fun time.  The kids decorated snow scenes, played lots of games, and had a gift exchange – and I got some encouraging, adult/mom interaction that always leaves me feeling refreshed (and hoping that I really am somewhat normal…).

Today I had some things to do all morning into the afternoon – but then I went into frantic cleaning mode as tomorrow we leave for my in-laws’ house and by the time we get back on Saturday, my parents will be HERE!!!!!  🙂 

3.  THE OTHER thing I wanted to say is that Thursday is MIRIAM’S 2nd BIRTHDAY!!  I will be in “the land of no internet” for the rest of the week, so I wanted to acknowledge her birthday now!   These last two years have FLOWN BY – and I am so thankful for our little Christmas gift …

Her birth story is on my blog – and I’m so glad I have that documentation of the events surrounding her arrival.  Hard to believe my baby who came into this world at 7 lbs and 21 inches is now (as of today) almost 27 lbs and 33 inches!!  🙂 
She’s a running, talking, taking-apart-everything, singing, dancing, smiling, laughing, coloring, puzzle-doing, book-reading, happy girl who brings us all so much joy each day! 
Happy Birthday, Miriam!!
