most weeks it doesn't feel like a special day. but this week, this friday...
patrick is home. he doesn't work again until monday. hallelujah.
my mama and i took elijah for a quick trip to the pumpkin patch last weekend. it.was.freezing.
we were unprepared for the bitter wind. soooo we didn't stay long.
elijah picked a fine little pumpkin and managed a stroll through the corn maze.
he even went exploring beyond the maze path. brave boy.
elijah decorated his pumpkin. for this one, he used mostly stickers.
the child loves stickers. wonder where he got that from?
when my mama visits, she brings fun things. like this little owl wall hanging.
except it's on my fridge. no matter. she made it!
complete with little treat pockets to hide things for elijah to find.
she made me want to see it right that second!
we didn't own it!? what the what!? i was planning to get it for christmas(for myself)
but since target had it for so cheap, we bought it now. and promptly watched it.
sometimes i like to switch things up as far as my quiet time goes.
this week i grabbed my old truthquest student inductive study bible.
it was the first study bible i owned! it's new living translation and has awesome notes.
my favorites are the ones written by me. they tell of where my heart was then,
and encourage me that i have grown and am growing. so yeah, loving that right now.
from previous insta-fridays you may recall messes such as these. i secretly love it.
elijah is allowed to play with the dominoes any ole time he pleases.
because they don't shatter and are easy to clean up.
he is allowed to play with any other game when we "play" together.
elijah chose 90s trivial pursuit. he won, of course.
i mean, he left me there with the cards all strewn about,
so i assumed i was the loser...
i even secretly love that in the middle of the night we checked on elijah
to find him amongst unpacked bins of outgrown clothes. nice.
pretty much his entire closet was on his bedroom floor.
did i mention it was the middle of the night?
so yeah, nothing is organized now, but it is in the closet. for now.
he smiled super big and said "heeeeey" and came and hugged us.
his tone was all "'sup y'all? welcome to my party, ain't this fabulous!?"
i got some happy mail this week! look at that super sweet snoopy mailer. LOVE it!
my pops also knows what's up.
he sent us a tray of cinnamon rolls from the wolferman's catalog. holla.
and looky! my prints from blossom & vine arrived yesterday!
doesn't she make the sweetest things?
these will be framed for elijah's room asap. can't wait!
what have you been up to this week?
and what are you thankful for?

:: patrick is off work today through sunday ::
:: creative friends with fun shops ::
:: the lord protects my crazy child in the middle of the night and all the time ::
linking up with jeannett. she's fancy and sweet.
