Starbucks coffee

Currently: December 2021

Welcome to December! What do you have going on this month? We have a busy month on deck with all sorts of gatherings and activities. Here’s what’s current in my life this month.

Current booksย I recently finished this baking memoir and now I’m onto a midwifery memoir, this dog health book, and this motherhood devotional-style book. Sadie is currently loving all of her Christmas-themed books! I’ll have to dedicate a post to all the ones we own, love, and read over and over again ๐Ÿ˜Š๐ŸŽ„

Current food Venison again! This time from our preacher and his wife. We are spoiled ๐Ÿ˜Š

Current baked good Good ‘ol chocolate chip cookies ๐Ÿช

Current drink Starbucks Holiday Blend. It has herbal and sweet maple notes ๐Ÿ˜

Black cat coffee mug (more…)

A Less Scary Snowman + Saturday Happenings

The morning stated out with coffee and my Bible. The best combo out there. I’m still studying the birth of Jesus in Luke and really enjoying it.

To make up for Sadie’s snowman fear, we made a less scary snowman together.

That’s her “smile!” face, haha. So cute. Also, she chose her outfit again and this time it was pajamas + a rain jacket ๐Ÿ™‚

Our Saturday included family snuggle time in our bed in the morning, then in Sadie’s bed after her nap. If you look close enough, you can spot Malcolm nestled up to Sadie.

Jimmy and I also enjoyed Starbucks coffee, he went to a Nerf battle at our church, and I got some reading in during Sadie’s nap.

I’m almost done with this book and it has been engrossing. Up next is this, which I’m excited to dive into!ย Me + a book = happiness ๐Ÿ™‚

Our neighbors stopped by and gave Sadie an Elsa doll as a Christmas gift this afternoon and she hasn’t let it out of her sight since then. We have truly been blessed with the most wonderful neighbors.

Sadie’s new doll inspired her and Jimmy to watch Frozen II this evening while I got some real estate work done and folded laundry.

And that takes us to now. I need to coax Niva out of the snow (she’s literally sleeping outside… living the husky life) and into the house and then I’m going to try and squeeze in more reading before we hit the hay!

Tell me about your Saturday!
