The Clock Reads: 11:39 pm
Outside my Window: It's a beautiful clear night although the rain is supposed to set in soon. I think the next two days are supposed to be rainy ones.
Looking Around my House- It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas- decor is everywhere. We even have THREE trees this year. One was given to me and is a skinny tree. It will remain up year round so that I can use it as a seasonal tree. The other two belong to my kids. Lee and Anika was determined to have a white one so they got it. Ax was determined to have a green one so he got it.
This is Axle's Tree
It sits in my kitchen
He decorated it in all colors
It has all our special ornaments on it
This is Lee and Anika's
They chose to do theirs in red, blue and white
It's in our living room
This is a slim tree- it's going to be used year round
It will have all clear lights
I'm going to use Purple, Green and Bronze (Gold) ornaments on it
It's in our living room too!

My To Do List- For tonight is finished- it's too late for this gal to be doing anything else. I'm hoping to knock out a few more chores tomorrow though!
Tonight's Dinner Menu- Was Wendy's for Sis and I, McDonalds for Ax and Lee & Arby's for the husband!!!!
Things that made me Happy and Thankful Today- In one word, GIVING!!!! Today we delivered the blessing basket to Robin. She wasn't home but I later received an email from her that was so sweet. Her precious son was there and he was so excited to see us. Then we took Coats, hats and gloves to two little girls I know that are truly in need this year. I purchased their gear at Walmart and they were so very grateful. I also had gathered up 2 bags of Justice clothes from my cousin for the oldest and an entire box of shoes from my Sister in Law for the youngest. I absolutely LOVE being able to help people.
I am Wondering- Why marriage has to be so hard sometimes. Please continue to pray for my husband.
I am Thinking- About starting a new daily box project with the kids in December- Details to come soon!
I am Wearing- Grey leggins and a grey tee- comfortable clothes for lounging around the house
I am Creating- A list of gifts I need to buy- Christmas is coming fast my friends
I am Going- To need to buy some ornament hooks and lights for the remaining tree. Two of the three still need tree skirts too
I am Hoping- For a Date Night tomorrow night but we shall see I guess
I am Planning- On making cake balls one day this weekend. I've never attempted it before but I'm excited to try. I bought all the ingredients today. My first batch will be red velvet!
I am Hearing- My son complaining because the Hulk Movie is not the same as the Hulk Cartoon
I am Praying- For Peace, For God to intervene in certain aspects of my life- For continued happiness and joy within myself.
