Things I have loved these past few weeks

- The bottle of wine Brian insisted we open. That chardonay was so soothing as I read a book after the girls went to bed.

- The girls in my Bible study who listen and love me through it all.

- Brian buying the last Christmas gift that was stressing me out.

- Shopping in Walmart all by myself for one hour.

- Completing my snowflake garland.

- Madison sleeping from 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. for several nights in a row.

- Reagan playing with Madison for an hour each morning after breakfast. So sweet.

- Reagan's joy in opening Christmas gifts this afternoon.

- Madison tearing hunks of paper off her presents just so she could eat them.

- Reagan helping Madison unwrap her gifts.

- Reagan's new words: ridiculous, delicious, beach

- My new black dress. Best thing I have bought at Target in...ever.

- A Christmas gift for my sister that I am so so so excited about.

- The Vampire Diaries marathon. Officially. Hooked.

- Reagan is done with shots for 12 months.

- Completing my January monthly meal plan yesterday.

- Watching/listening to Reagan having pretend conversations with some of her friends.

- Brian's hilarious made-up words.

- Watching Madison try to eat her first piece of "cereal".

- Curtains for my bedroom from Walmart for a great price. Also, love the site-to-store shipping option!

- Catching a movie on t.v. today that my brother and I watched COUNTLESS times years ago - Memphis Belle.

- My Christmas tree has remained largely undisturbed and untouched for 2 weeks. How this is possible, I do not know.

- New sweater from Brian for Christmas!

- Great book I'm reading - Good to Great in God's Eyes by Chip Ingram.

- Making Christmas cookies with Lydia and Aidan (& Shalene) followed by a great supper!

- Both services at our church today were AWESOME!!!
