Instead of Cleaning House

I'm supposed to be cleaning house and getting ready for Christmas, but I sometimes tend to procrastinate.  Here are a few of the things I'm enjoying instead of cleaning these days:

Silly pranks that involve a shirts filled with dirt,

dirty little faces,

handsome little smiles,

pretty smiling eyes,

piano recitals,

impromptu parades,

trips to the farm,

park visits,

feeding the horses carrots,

funny faces made by horses when the carrots get dropped on the wrong side of the fence,

sweet little bakers,

making Christmas cookies,

and little tree climbers.

My house may be dirty, but my heart is full!

This Weekend

We enjoyed celebrating our son-in-law's birthday Sunday afternoon...

as well as visiting with our children,  grandchildren,  siblings, and parents.  

How special it is to get to know your great-grandparents.

Our son's baby and our daughter's are just a couple of months apart in age.    Now aren't they both adorable?

We were blessed to attend the dedication service of the youngest one Sunday.
