Love that I get to see this cute face all the time in person rather than just in pictures like a couple months ago!

Love that after nearly 2 months, I finally got her wearing feety pajamas!  Little Girl would have nothing to do with them the first several nights, and I gave up, but we've had a cold spell and the other kids were wearing theirs, so I thought I'd try again.  Guess what?  She likes them!  Hooray!  Now, just to talk the almost 9 year old into some footed pajamas!

Love that my 4 year old and 6 year old wanted to share some of their own money from their money jars with their little sister because she didn't have as much in her jar as they did (they've been saving their allowance for a while and she's only lived with us a couple months!).  Without her even knowing they generously added to her jar!

Love having an eager baking assistant!  After a trip to Target (hence the bags in the background, and no, I'm not compensated to endorse Target, but Target is welcome to send me some store credit for displaying their brand!), I began work on some red velvet cake balls.  Wow, that red velvet cake batter is really red!

Love this Bible verse and need to be in constant prayer that I can show love like this and be able to teach my children to love like this (especially the part about demanding its own way):

"Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance." 1 Cor 13:4-7
