For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Have I mentioned.... much I love this time of year! I love the sights, sounds, and smells. I love evergreen smells, pumpkin spice, homemade bread baking, soups cooking, turkey's roasting, and all the things of a home filled with love. I even love the chaos that this time of year holds. It is so much fun to plan and prepare for the holidays with our families and friends. I love the time when we can begin to decorate for Christmas. I love to send and GET Christmas letters and cards.It is the time of year when I can catch up with those friends that I haven't been in contact with much.I love to shop for my kids and family and friends... I love pondering over just the perfect gift to give. I love to host parties and gatherings.

... how much I love my husband! He is such a great daddy. He loves his kiddos and loves to be involved with every aspect of their little lives. He is my "taxi" driver, "doctor" taker and the "principal" of our homeschool. I love to watch the kids as they get their special time with dad. Mia and her daddy have a special date planned once every two weeks. She attends speech class, but more importantly(to her at least) is the breakfast she gets to share with her daddy. She has started making the special request that daddy take her to Panera Bread for breakfast. She is definitely "MY" girl. She and daddy brought mommy a surprise yesterday. I got the special treat of gingerbread bagels.(Thanks Ms Tami for introducing mommy to these delicious treats). Those bagels are so wonderful, and just another reason to love this time of year. Now all I need is a pumpkin spice latte from a favorite coffee shop and I am in mommy paradise!
