A Lazy Sunday Morning

Fia with her cup of tea, she loves to drink hot vanilla tea. My favorite is when she is curled up on the couch, under a blanket, reading a book and cupping her hot tea.

Francesca's "bracelets"

Francesca reading the Bible, this is one of her favorite books to read and it is kept in the dining room. She reads during meals sometimes because who can say no to reading the bible?

Working on our journals..........such a great idea from "A Holy Experience". Mine is covered with food stains from the kids, dirt, a list of things I am thankful for which offers a snapshot into the days that are being lived now, scripture and drawings the kids have done.

Fia's journal

You might ask - where is your picture Mandy? Well, as soon as I figure out how not to look like a 50 year old bag lady in the morning I will get right on that - posting pictures of me right out of bed on a lazy morning. Seriously, I could be the before woman in some cosmetic surgery ad. I was thinking that the best PTO fundraiser would be taking pictures of all the moms as they pull up for morning drop off and then blowing the pictures up to 16x20s. Then you send copies and say you are making a display of all the parents on a school bulletin board. The size of your picture directly correlates to the amount of money you donate to the PTO. The more money you give, the smaller your picture. I bet we could raise A TON of money.........
