And speaking of devotionals, I bought this spiral bound devotional for Alise. My plan is for us to do one lesson each night before bedtime. I am so excited about reading this to her and talking about the different topics. I got it at Lifeway, too.
This week while Alise and I were out running errands, we stopped in a local home furnishing store and they had the prettiest pink and purple (my two favorite colors) wreaths outside their store so I had to take pictures.
I love all the mesh netting and actually bought some pink and green netting to do an arrangement around our front door for Christmas, but I just never got around to it. I'll just save it for next year!
Alise and I went to the matinee showing of the new Chipmunk movie yesterday. It was really cute, but I'm not much in to Simon, Theodore, and Alvin. She liked it! But I feel like I have lived at the theater this holiday! We've seen three movies in three weeks and they were all "kid flicks." But I hafta say that there are some really great movies coming out in January - at least the previews look great.
And just in case you wondered what Alise would look with long hair, here is a pic. She found a cowgirl costume that I had bought for her to wear to school during a pep rally. Too funny.And last but not least, I am SOOOO not looking forward to getting back to our usual routine tomorrow morning. It is going to be hard! I've been off for the last eleven days and we've kinda slacked off on Alise's bed time and have been letting her sleep in, too. I dread having to get her up and send her back to school when she knows that her teacher won't even be there (Ms. L is vacationing in Disney for the week). And then there is dance, gymnastics, and church as well as tons of emails and voice mails to return at the office. I'm just going to try and enjoy today and not think about tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.
