Random November Thoughts

Well, it is the last day of November...and I am thinking on many things...the joy of being in Christ, the wonder of Christmas, the busyness of daily life and much more...

Just going to leave a few of those thoughts here...nothing really gathered...just random thoughts

DD lost a tooth yesterday...his first tooth fell out when he was eating, so I got RIPPED see, I have had the pleasure of pulling out the FIRST tooth of every other Cannon child...and I hate to say it, but I LOVE doing that...I have no idea why...but anyway...I do. So DD said his tooth was REALLY LOOSE..I asked him if I could wiggle it and he let me. I asked him if I could pull it out and he really did not want me to do it, but somehow, I talked him into it...You would have thought I was cutting off a toe with all the fuss...but when it was out he said, "That didn't hurt at all" Can't believe how big he is getting to be.

Trying to line up some activities for GK and DD to do in December and came across Truth in the Tinsel. It steps you through Advent, keeping Christ in Christmas. It is written with younger children in mind, but I think both of my youngers will enjoy it. I found many fun things to do on Pinterest too...and HOPE to post each day the things we do...Never got my December Daily book put together last year...maybe I will use it for this instead.

Got our tree tonight...I have NO IDEA what the name of the place is, but it is that BIG RED BARN on Getchell on the right when you head east. They were VERY NICE and HELPFUL and we got a great looking tree...I think it is about 7 feet tall. We looked ridiculous driving it home on the Malibu...but it is what it is...They don't have a HUGE selection, but I would recommend them if you don't have your tree yet...

So very thankful for so many things...too many to list, and list often sounds like something you spew out without much thought...I am truly thankful for many things...My family...we have had a tough year and you all continue to be a great blessing to me with your love, generosity, how you encourage one another and think of things to make the way a bit easier for others. You are all fearfully and wonderfully made and my life is so much richer and deeper because of you...Friends, especially THE friend who sticks closer than a brother, God's it is ALWAYS just what I need, work, another day... so many things.

The First Term of Co-op in Everett was a great blessing...My children got to take some wonderful classes by some of the most gracious and loving women I have ever met. Thank you SO MUCH for your gift! The classes I taught blessed me SO the Flat Stanley class I taught, two of the boys got back the MOST AMAZING books from their friends for their flat people...WOW is all I can say...their hosts really went the extra mile to create a very special gift for these boys and really set the Flat Stanley Host bar very HIGH...Great Job! My other class had the sweetest kids...they were so excited and fun to work with...really looking forward to next term, but also thankful for a few weeks off.

We received a VERY THOUGHTFUL gift from a few sneaky ones just before Thanksgiving...while I have no idea who to thank for all of that...the Lord knows and I am very thankful for each one of you! My cup overflows!

Well, I told you it was a bunch of random thoughts...probably not worth reading, but there you have it...
