We had some sweet family time this past week. On Thursday, Rainey was the candle lighter at her school chapel. She attends Red Apple Pre-School at Peace Lutheran Church in Hurst. We love the school and are thankful for the Christ centered teaching she is receiving. True to form, she chose to wear a Halloween ensemble that day - two weeks after Halloween. I love that girl!
On Friday we toured the Sweet Shop in Fort Worth. We learned how fine candy is made and why it's so expensive! It was really interesting to watch them hand decorate each piece of candy and hey, as an extra bonus we got to wear these cool hair nets!
I was thinking about thanksgiving and contentment last night. Emily was having a difficult time going to sleep, so I went in and rocked her gave her a bottle. As we rocked our cares away in her dimly lit room, I wondered if the moment would be sweeter if her room was bigger or had more stuff in it. It was pretty dark in there, so I imagined that the part of the room I couldn't see was huge and filled with toys. You know what? That didn't make the moment any sweeter.
Have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday.
