FOR TODAY - Monday, February 2, 2009

Outside my window...All is quiet except for an occasional passing car. Most house lights are out, as it is near 11PM.

I am thinking...about how good it's going to feel to drop into bed tonight, after a very busy past few days.

I am thankful being able to get Elliot's dinosaur room finished this weekend. It's something he has looked forward to for months now.

From the learning rooms...I am learning to color line art. It takes time & effort, but it's fun.

From the kitchen...everything is clean, ready for us to meet there tomorrow morning.

I am wearing...pajamas.

I am creating...memories every single day for Elliot, Emily, & us. I pray that they will always remember. I know we will.

I am take Elliot & Emily out to Denny's tomorrow for breakfast. We are going to enjoy the 'free Grand Slam for every American' that they are offering tomorrow. Hopefully, my DIL Lisa, son Shad, & Avery can meet us there.

I am Bible, Adventurous Prayer, & I have have just begun re-reading the Left Behind series.

I am hoping...that Elliot has many, many happy hours in his new bedroom. It is an 'every little boy's dream' bedroom.

I am hearing...only the clicking of my keys, as everyone else is in bed.

Around the house...things are back together, after the mess of doing Elliot's room this weekend.

One of my favorite cup of morning coffee.

A few plans for the rest of the week...go shopping for some things for our home, order a few more things for Elliot's room, catch up on my blog reads, catch up with some friends.

Here is a picture thought I am sharing...Elliot walking into his dinosaur themed bedroom for the first time. He could only see a couple of things - the bigger things were to his right, & he gasped when he saw them. I will never forget his reaction. He 'squealed' with joy.
