Thursday Thoughts...And A Winner!

Today I'm thinking about...

...Not much! I'm enjoying this little time of the year in which we have few commitments and more time spent at home together. We are hunkering down in our country home and planning meals, doing schoolwork, watching television programs, playing games, and making treasured family memories. It is January. And as nature slumbers and refreshes itself, so do we. : ) Here are a few pictures of our past week together...

Kirby is enjoying the snuggly days with us. : )

My little lady all set for Mass last Saturday...

and my little Sunday morning treat.

We worked on Thank You cards for the thoughtful Christmas gifts the kids received...

and Daddy took some young people outside to build a snowman. Thank Heaven for outdoorsy husbands!

 Cupcake Day. What more can I say?

My Madison. Last weekend she embarked on her first "Grown Up" adventure. I am so proud to share with you that she has begun her career as an Independent Mary Kay Consultant! She was born with a makeup brush in hand, and I am so happy that she is choosing to embark on a career in which she will be able to put her talent and knowledge to use, as well as do something she truly enjoys. And I am also proud that she is beginning while still finishing high school. She attended a Mary Kay conference and came back so excited to begin. If you are interested, please feel free to visit her website and check out her products. She ships anywhere in the United States! You can find her here. : )

And congratulations to Mary! She was picked by my personal assistant Peyton as the winner of the Little House On The Prairie DVD set. Please email me your information and I will get it right out to you. : )

And that's a wrap! Have a cozy, blessed weekend friends!!!
