A Beautiful Day to Clean

What a beautiful day we had yesterday! My windows have been very sad lately with many, many dirty spots. Once I realized what the weather was going to be, I decided it was time to get those windows cheered up a bit. And of course I had some little helpers.

Josiah insisted on being the dryer. He did a geat job until he got side tracked and thought it was more fun to run off with his sister's drying towel, giggling and teasing the whole time. BOYS!

Diella didn't think it was as nice as the rest of us. I think she is really anticipating winter. :) She was my photographer and did a great job. Usually that is Alegra's job and Diella takes care of Benaiah. This day the roles were reversed. And when the boy heard me say I wanted to get a picture of the photographer, yep, he jumped in the way, of course giggling and teasing the whole time.
Alegra and Benaiah enjoyed some sunshine too while sitting and watching the cleaning going on. She wanted to come out, and I told her that he wasn't dressed warm enough to come out. She slipped back in the house, and next thing I know they were coming back out and Benaiah was dressed with a sweater on. She said he fussed a little bit, but they got it done, and I think she was quite pleased with herself. :) And he was very glad to be outside with the rest of us!

I have slacked a little on my "Winter Blues Washed Away Activities", but there will be something posted at the end of this week for everyone following that. Also, feel free to comment and let me know what ideas you try or if you are following along. I'd love to hear from you!
Enjoy family and fellowship this week as we all gather to remember all the things that we are thankful for in our lives. There is truly so much! Last night before we had supper, our prayer was going around the table thanking God for different things from our hearts. Alegra thanked HIM for a good Papa (I think she was even teary eyed when she said it), Diella thanked HIM for her Dad and Mom, Josiah thanked HIM for the food to eat, Jonathon thanked HIM for our health, and I thanked HIM for a hard working husband who isn't lazy.
I could, of course, go on and on of all the things we are thankful for, but maybe I can save that for another Thursday. And having said that, I hope you all have a blessed day of thankfulness with your families and be sure you thank the right ONE who deserves all the credit for all things.
