Happy For

Yesterday it began to rain while I was at school helping to organise the end of year Christmas pageant (so not a pageant but when else would I get to use that word!!) I had washing on the line....

When I came home this is what I found - my neighbour rescued the washing off the line and put the pegs in Flip's cap and put it all under the verandah thingy we have. God Bless a washing fairy!

These 2 boys that love each other so much - The Atlas and I found them playing together with this suitcase one morning before school.

I love that the when a very large and exciting advent box arrived Flip decided to race down to his room and wrap a parcel for Daddy so he didn't feel left out - I so love that kid's generous heart.

I love that I have the best advent swap partner ever!! Leonie is one of those incredible, generous, over-achievers (love a good overachiever!!) - I am in for an AWESOME December.

The box also contained those 'air bag' packaging things which were joyfully burst as well.

I love that the box quickly became a boat for the teddies and then a table for a picnic afternoon tea and then a prop in the 'wipeout' obstacle course that the boys built.

And I'm also totally awed by our brains - I am learning lines for a performance next week and it kind of blows my mind that we can with a small amount of intention memorize and regurgitate lines we read - our brain is fearfully and wonderfully made indeed.

I love that it's Friday and tomorrow I proudly turn 35!! Halfway to 70 - bring it. :o)

I bet Meghan has an amazing collection of things she is grateful for too - her list is always cool.
