Beef Stew and the Grinch

Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .

. . .  putting the finishing touches on some delicious, nutritious beef stew, and realizing that my three oldest offspring would refuse to eat it.  They all complained, the oldest ate just enough so I would let her fill up on wheat bread, and the other two decided they would rather leave the table without dinner than ingest a cooked potato in savory broth.  Sigh.  At least Phillip eagerly ate two helpings.  They say food is the way to a man's heart, but to some degree it's the way to mine, too.  I'm so grateful that he eats (and usually likes) what I cook.

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . finding the missing piece of one of our favorite ornaments.

. . . having a thoughtful family discussion about the Holy Ghost at home evening.

. . . reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas as our home evening activity.  Phillip commented that my narration was "very dramatic."
