Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name;

    make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
    tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
    seek his face always.
Psalm 105:1-4

Today I watched three Christmas movies, drank three cups of hot cocoa, and made three Christmas cards. And I read some in there too. Tonight Dad made homemade pizza and we watched Elf (the third Christmas movie).

Thanksgiving day we had a house full of family. The weather was beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Three tables were filled with place settings. We had our new glasses set out, a floral, colorful table cloth, and a starched white one with a crochet covering in the middle. Our kitchen counters were laden with food. After we ate, we made crafts and in the evening we played Guesstures.

Here's a small list of some things that I am thankful for:

•The Bible
•My parents
•Addy (my little sister)
•My family (aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, etc.)
•Our house and living out in the country
•Pen-pals and letters
•Our church
•Living in a free country
•Journals and books

How was your Thanksgiving?


the kitten named alma

I think kittens are one of the best perks of living on a farm. There just never seems to be a shortage of them. Right now we have four -- two calicoes, one black, and one cream colored. Elvira, Teddy, and Whitey. And this is Alma, one of the calicoes. She's a favorite.

P.S. Things are looking different around here. I'm excited with how this design turned out. What do you think? (Also, there's a new button on the sidebar.)

Recently I got the VSCO app on my iPod. It's actually the first and only one I've ever bought. It's well worth the the .99! These are some shots I've taken with it so far. Do you have VSCO?
