Today it was Elli's turn to say our family prayer before everyone else went to school and work.

We usually help her but today she wanted to do it ALL BY HERSELF!

This is what she said:

Heavenly Father.

Thank you for this day.

Thank you for our food.

Thank you for our kids to be safe.

Please bless us.

Thank you for Jesus.

In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

Today Elli and I stayed in our pajamas until noon.

We read books.

We colored pictures.

We cleaned up the kitchen.

We ate spaghettio's on a blanket in the living room.

We watched a little Wallace & Gromit.

Then we got dressed and took a little nap because Lea was asleep.

It was delightful.

Today (well tonight) I have a concert.
I had a dress rehearsal last night and a rehearsal on Tuesday night.

It was a long week that isn't over yet.

so today I took it easy and enjoyed my 2 sweet little girls.

good things:
quiet mornings
a beautiful clear sky

What adorable pictures of your girls! Sounds like your morning has been much the same as mine... only it took me until 2 to get out of the PJs, because I kept procrastinating the exercise:) Reading and playing games with Emily is way more fun! Its so nice being a mom when I get to spend a little one on one time with my children. I guess that's one benefit of having the older ones back in school. Good luck at your concert tonight!

Oh! I love mornings like that. They are getting few and far between these days.

Marley Family said...

Sounds like the perfect day!

That is one of the cutest little prayers! You are such an awesome mom and an inspiration to me. As James tells our kids all the time "Can I be like you when I grow up?"
