Good Monday Morning

I am way to chipper to have gotten in the bed after 10pm and up and stayed by 4am.
Today looks like a great day. After I finish here I am off to get ready for the day.

Keep thinking about the question. What does contentment mean to you? I hope to get my post on that subject done today, tomorrow for sure.

I am running errands today, paying bills, headed to the post office, CVS, bank and Wal-Mart. I also need to strip the beds, catch up the laundry and get started on supper prep.

I am so excited that Christmas is around the corner (and Thanksgiving too)! I updated my address book last night and started putting my card list in my rusty laptop for easier access.

I had been wanting to get the boys a Little People's nativity set for over a year now and never could find one on sale or at a yard sale or thrift store. We broke down and just bought one from Family Christian Bookstores a few weeks ago. Yes, of course I had a coupon and $.99 shipping! lol! It came last week and I was so tickled! The boys love it. They have just played and played with it.

This week we are going to work on shoe boxes for operation Christmas child. The boys will have such a good time. I want them to learn from early on that Christmas is about Christ and giving, not what Santa brings Christmas morning.

So, what is going on in your neck of the woods for the day? What ever it is I hope it is a great day!

We did a few shoeboxes, too. Thanks to Walgreens' sales, I was able to stock them pretty well without spending much.

The Little People sets are so much fun for kids!
I hope you have a wonderful day.
