Fun With My Boys

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . snuggling Todd on my lap.  He recently turned two, so he's not quite a baby, but he's not quite a big boy, either.  I'm enjoying the cuddly phase as long as I can.

. . . sharing a joke with Daniel.  I don't even remember what it was about; I just remember that it was fun to laugh with him.

An Apple Gadget and Inspiration

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . Phillip showing our son Daniel the manly arts of carving turkey and using our apple slicer/corer to prepare apple crisp.  That slicer is a nifty gadget, and my engineer husband loves to use it.

. . . discovering a slow cooker turkey recipe that is easy and produces juicy, flavorful turkey.  Awesome.

. . . thinking about how grateful I am to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my life.  He puts life in perspective, gives me hope and guidance on rough days, and keeps inspiring me to be a little better and kinder every day.

Cocoa and a Predictable Dreidel

Today's favorite moments included . . .

. . . taking a walk with my family.

. . . playing the dreidel game with my kids.  We need a new dreidel, though; ours lands on the "take it all" symbol more than half the time.  It's better than getting the "take nothing" symbol over and over, but the predictability still takes a bit of the fun out of the game.

. . . attending a Christmas breakfast at a friend's house.  It was fun to sit with a bunch of gals I know just relaxing, talking, laughing, and sipping cocoa in our pajamas.
