Big Girl Beds

 A certain little princess is in her big girl bed for the first night tonight.  Only took about an hour for her to go down and about 20 "get back in beds!"  She is so, so happy!!!  This was an early Christmas present from Duchess and it was definitely a hit!!!  I can't believe she is this big! *sniff sniff*

****I am grateful for
1) big girl beds
2) more milestones
3) this time next week we'll be at Disney World!
4) new renters without a big gap between, which means we won't have to carry two mortgages w/out an rental income... phew
5) clean sheets

New traditions

We did manage to make it up to our church, The Ark, and volunteer to help prepare meals for the 16,000 people they would be feeding during the Thanksgiving outreach.  This was when Chase was starting to feel better and when Emery was starting to go downhill.  Since Emery is still tiny, she hung with Nana while Duchess, Chase, Madison, and I went to volunteer.  I'm pretty sure that we made about a 1,000 pounds of green bean casserole!  Here's to new family traditions!!

****I am grateful for
1) new traditions
2) all our blessings
3) realizing that there are others we can bless by helping
4) opportunities
5) teachable moments
