We Were Gonna.....

.......wake up early and go to the gym.
.......go to the dollar store and get a craft.
....take baths and showers and brush our teeth.

oh yes people, i haven't even brushed my teeth yet.
some mornings it is hard to get motivated. HA!

this morning has been unexpectedly wonderful.
we slept in.
i got to cuddle with both of my girls on the couch.
i read my bible in the sunshine in my favorite spot of the house.
we are eating homemade bread for breakfast.
so although most everyday does not go like i planned it, i am thankful for the joy in the ordinary.

the days I have all "planned" out, usually i am running around like a chicken with my head cut off, and not enjoying my MANY blessings.
on those days Sinclair finds my camera and i don't even notice she has take 48 pictures.

here are some of the good ones......

to busy to notice.......

oh well, the camera still works:O)

the other night the girls room was so cold and Matt found Sincair sleeping like this.....

Pretty sweet!

today i plan to....

Be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and always be prayerful.
