a few sweet things

in about an hour we'll pick up elijah from school and enjoy some lunch.
then he'll be off to his first official aba therapy.
i'm still excited for this new thing. and i am still fighting anxiety.
satan wants me to fear and doubt, but the lord is clearly before us in this.
and we are trusting him!
this weekend was difficult, not sure why exactly, but we are all out of sorts.
maybe because we all know what's coming?
i'm meditating on these verses from psalm 57.
please pray with us? pray for my cutie boy to be strong and able, 
and for patrick and myself to be patient and gracious and extra super loving!

let's start with the bummer news. 
the pretty snow we had?

it got all warm and forty degrees and now it's mostly gone.
pfft. it'll return soon enough, so chin up, kids.

today is the first day!!

it's handwritten note day, and you'll want to head on over to jeannett's for this:

lindsay at pen and paint created this adorable printable for us.  holla!
so, join us, ok? let's write some notes of thanks or encouragement and spread happy!

speaking of spreading happy,
my friend cory made these:

she sent them to me and i am in love with them.
cutest cards! i'll be writing happy day project notes on them, too!
let's all be sure to pester cory, and tell her to add these fancy cards to her shop!

and while we're discussing friends/happiness/cards/shops...
my sister friend danielle is too much.
she created a christmas card for our family! meep!
i cried. and i can hardly wait to show you.
it's just perfectly suited for us:)
what a sweet gift. and this means i will actually be sending christmas cards this year, right?
she does fantastic custom work, and premades as well. feast your eyes:


i'm telling you. 
visit danielle's christmas card shop today and choose your design!
then you'll be the coolest kids in town.
