Gifts and Goals for the Week, December 10, 2012

Well, this week was kinda a big one in our family...

       Judah is standing(ish) and thinking about walking(ish). We all cheer whenever he stands up, so he has decided it is really fun to be cute and get lots of attention, {wink!} and started standing up on his own. So, of course, he now has 6 other people in his face 24/7 saying "Can you stand up? Can you walk to me? MOM, HE JUST TOOK A STEP! Can you stand up? Can you walk?" get the picture. =)

       The kids were exposed to chicken pox. Which is a good thing in our house. Rachel, Carrie or Judah has never had them, and we just like to get it over as soon as possible so they can go on with life. We'll see if they actually get them or not! (I believe Rachel has been exposed to them before and has never gotten them, so maybe she is not allergic? We'll see!)

Here are the blessings I added to my 1,000 Gifts list this week:

494. Gingerbread candle
495. Provision and answered prayer
496. A growing, funny boy
497. Fun Christmas Ladies meeting
498. Unexpected fabric sale
499. Pretty Christmas lights drive
{Ahhhh, next one will be 500!! Woot!}
