Laughter, Raisin Pie and Snugglin'!

What a wonderful day! A day spent with Greg and the kids. Baking pies, watching movies, playing games, puzzles!, wrapping last minute gifts and stopping long enough to enjoy the sound of my family laughing together. We are most definitely NOT a perfect family...we have our moments. I'm trying to learn and stop long enough to enjoy and appreciate my little family of four. I am NOT the most laid back person you will ever meet, I hate that about myself. Note to self: work on that. Lord help me become less tense and enjoy life. The life You have blessed me with! Today has just been a good day to stop and ponder over all of the things I have to be thankful for. God IS good! So this will be a short post today, I'm going to go and snuggle with E. She wants to watch A Christmas Carol w/ George C. Scott. Not my favorite version but visually beautiful. I might even have a piece of Raisin Pie!! Time spent with my daughter...does it get ANY better than this?
