This post should be titled “Ride on the Crazy Train Edition”.
Between trying to be present and embrace the Christmas amazingness all around, advent madness, learning the ropes of foster care and welcoming a surprise baby human into our home, things are a little bit bananas ’round here.
Sometimes I just look around at it all and laugh. Maniacally. Then the kids get scared. I’m kidding.
But, really? I did feed my kids soft pretzels from Target for dinner one night last week.
This. This image is my phone’s lock screen. It’s kind of everything right now.
Sometimes, when I look around and laugh at the crazy that we’ve become, I take pictures too. This is what Trader Joe’s looks like these days. I have so much strapped to my body I need an adjustment.
But let’s talk about how excellent Better Life Bags are! Look at how well it works, even when there’s a baby strapped to you!
You really should go visit thewiegands.com. You’ll thank me if you do. Casey’s the real deal and her blog’s straight up dreamy. Not only that, she’s got an amazing giveaway going, featuring two bracelets from yours truly!
It’s safe to say I have a book crush on anything by Sally Lloyd-Jones. These two lovelies have been blessing us big time recently. Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing is a devotional type book for kids, but it seriously makes my heart sing too. Song of the Stars is such a beautiful book that offers a sweet perspective on the coming of Christ.
This little buddy. After a day spent being drug around from clinic to clinic for tests and appointments for his foster brother, he still had a smile. “I’m so glad we got this special time together, Mama”, he said as we rounded out the day. He’s seriously sweeter than that frozen yogurt we shared after it was all over.
So how has this week been for y’all? Adventing? Christmas fun? Time in the Word? I hear there’s amazingness going on over at She Reads Truth. I am going old school with a devotional a sweet friend gave me last December. When I can, I cozy up by the tree and take it all in.
