I’m thankful that my family had a good Christmas. My kiddos got just about everything on their list plus a few surprises. But besides the gifts, Christmas is always a cheerful time because we get to take a break from our usual schedule. So there is more time to relax and enjoy one another.
I’m thankful that my son won a turkey from the library. They were hosting a giveaway that you could get an entry by checking out 10 items. So every time we went during the giveaway period he checked out 10 items so he could get an entry to win the turkey. And it paid off because he won it. He was so excited when he won and was excited to cook it. He even tried a nibble of it, but he didn’t like it. I’m just happy that he gave it a try since he usually won’t even try meat.
I’m thankful that my mom gifted my husband and me with six dates. One of my intentions for 2017 is to actually go on all six dates. So far we have already gone on two dates. We went to movies to watch Fences for our first date, which was a really great movie. Then for our second date, we went on another movie date to watch Hidden Figures which was amazing.
I’m thankful that I got a new sewing machine for Christmas. My other machine was used when I got it and it wouldn’t do a zig-zag stitch. So I’m really happy to have a machine that can do more stitches.
Enjoying some me time today ☺ listening to the Hamilton soundtrack ? and using my new sewing machine that I got for Christmas. I have four items that I’ve started working on but haven’t finished. Today I’m back to working on my daughter’s Valentine’s day dress ?#learningtosew #beginnersewer #sewing #brothersewingmachine #dresses #metime #creativetime
I love it every year when Martin Luther King Jr. day is approaching because libraries start featuring books about MLK and other civil rights leaders. For me, it’s the start of my black history month teaching for homeschool. I like to read books throughout the year about African Americans to my kids, but during this time of the year my son is also excited to read them too. If you get excited about reading to your kids about African American history then you can check out my post about kid books about the civil rights movement and another post about kid books to read during black history month.
I’m thankful for snow days or in our case a dusting of snow 🙂
I’m thankful that we made it to the Martin Luther King day parade and my kids enjoyed it.
