If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner at your house, you may want to check out Amy’s Free Printable Thanksgiving Meal Planner.
I love Terri’s idea for an Acorn Gratitude Banner. This would be lots of fun to make with your younger children.
Alicia has Christmas Planning: 5 Things to Do Now.
Since I’m in the same season of life, I really appreciated the encouragement in Elizabeth’s posts Why I Still Stay Home (the why) and Why I Still Stay Home (what she does all day!) I also had to include her What the Lady at the Grocery Store Didn’t Tell Me to encourage all of you with little ones!
We’ll be getting our annual family pictures taken this morning. Fun times 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
I enjoyed the post about Christmas planning. I bought a planner last year for my kindle, and I can't find it this year. Ugh! But her advice was good, and I need to start work on our Christmas cards, at least, the picture. I actually ordered some cards last year — that didn't come in in time. Oops! So I have them for this year. 🙂
I've heard it several times that older children need their mothers at home just as much as younger ones. My mother stayed home the whole time we were in school (and still does), so I don't think twice about anybody else staying home. Our children, husbands, and homes need us, if we can be there full-time.
Tracey Brewer says
Even though both of my girls are older and now both are back in school during the day, that time when school is over and we're driving home seems like a critical time that I wouldn't want to miss. Both share all about their day and sometimes we'll have good discussions about different situations that happened in their classes.
I'm very thankful that I'm available to be at home and with our children full-time!
Can't wait to see your family pics!
LOOOOOVE "Why I Still Stay Home"!!!!!! YES YES YES! A million times, YES!!!!!!!!
