for your monday....




Everyday the weather gets a little colder and this weekend we even saw a little white falling. Watching the leaves fall and knowing it won't be long before I wake up to a blanket of snow covering the ground excites me. I love making hot tea in the mornings and wrapping up in my sweats while I do my devotions. It's the changing that I love. Something new and unknown.

Over the weekend we spent most of our time doing yard work. There's a lot to get done even though our yard is so small. The children loved it...well Elijah and Amelia did. Nay snuck over to Nana's and missed some of the work:) I love my family and working along side them doesn't feel like work at all. 

Another change made it's way into our home recently. On Sunday's we've stopped using our phone and computers. (we don't have a t.v. or we'd stop that too) We felt we needed a day without the distractions that they bring. I've always said that I liked paper and pen better than my computer and a good book over a movie, but somehow the phones and computers were taking over. Sucking time that we would use for other things. Taking attention away from each other and the children. A quietness has replaced the noise they brought that is so refreshing. I'll admit sometimes I want to pull out my computer at the end of the day, but I'm glad that I haven't. I've read instead. Used a family cookbook over looking something up online. I've talked with Caleb and told an extra bedtime story to the kids. It's been a great change for our home.

I think what you are doing is wonderful! A few years ago we gave up all TV for a few months... except for the evening news. We really had to get creative with our time and we actually got a lot more sleep because we didn't stay up late watching stuff we really didn't care about anyway. Good for you guys!

And I am so, so jealous of your pretty Fall leaves.
