First Frost




I don't know why.... but I love the first frost of the season.  I always run outside and take oodles of pictures of sparkly frost on every flower and leaf that I see.  They never look as pretty in my pictures.  This morning Elijah and Eriky woke up, looked out their window, and came running to Erik and I full of excitement!!!!  They thought it was snow!!!  And, they wanted to go straight outside and play in it!!!!  Erik had to break the news to them... no snow... yet, anyway.  I'm hopeful.... always hopeful.  Call me crazy... I do love the cold weather.... cold weather and hot drinks. :-)  Though by March I will be ready for a reprieve.  The beauty of seasons!

I was so tickled about the frost that I googled "quick and easy sugar cookies" and chose a recipe.  Then, as the boys finished up their morning chores and began their journal writing, I snuck off to the kitchen to surprise them with a happy morning treat!  We called them "first frost sugar cookies."




A little something to nibble on while they plugged away with their morning work...



The cookies were super quick and easy to make, and they were very good, too!  Fun to celebrate the cold!!  Every day is full of reasons to celebrate if we just take time to slow and notice them....

Hi! I live in a sweet country home overflowing with love, laughter, and little ones. I have been blessed to journey these days beside a man that I love, respect, and admire. He is my soul-mate and best friend. Together we are seeking to raise our seven children to be lovers of God, to be wise and discerning, and to be all that our sweet God created them to be. I am in the goldfish and cheerio stage of life, but I am keenly aware that these days are slipping right through my hands. This blog is my attempt to keep our memories safe for years to come.
