WOW! My first blog award here – MOST UPLIFTING BLOGGER AWARD – THANKS!

This is the very first blog award I’ve received for this blog!

THANKS Donna! Exciting!

Most Uplifting Blogger Award I feel so loved!

I don’t know what’s so uplifting about this blog (funny maybe) but I really appreciate the thought!

You’re so awesome!

OK. How this works is:

  • You nominate at least 7 (more if you like) blogs for the award. (They MUST be uplifting in SOME WAY. They don’t have to be religious – just uplifting)
  • Write a post telling us who you’ve nominated and…
  • Tell us 7 things you are Thankful about/for! (Again, doesn’t have to be religious – most anything will do)
  • Make sure you let the bloggers know they’re nominated.
  • Wear your badge with pride (Post it somewhere on your blog)

MY Nominees for this blog:

I hope you find some blogs among this list that will inspire and lift you up!
I know I have! WOW!

And my 7 things I’m thankful for (Much easier than 7 things about myself by the way):

  1. I am Thankful for my beautiful children. They couldn’t be more of a blessing to me!
  2. I am Thankful for God’s gift of family! What would we do without them?
  3. I am Thankful that God created Chocolate!
  4. I am Thankful for the COFFEE bean and the wonders we can get from it!
  5. I am Thankful to have children who enjoy cooking!
  6. I am Thankful God gave me a sense of humor and such a bright outlook on life!
  7. I am Thankful for wordpress – without whom none of this would be possible!

OK! Your turn!

HAVE FUN with it!

And MERRY CHRISTMAS!

It’s Almost Christmas! We need Chocolate!

How many of you have made these with your kids?

Fun aren’t they? White Dipped Pretzels

And of course we never eat them as we make them…

We do occasionally go ahead and dip the broken or wonky pretzels because we know we’ll eat those. I just don’t have any pictures. (not because they go so fast…because they’re not pretty for pictures – yeah, that’s it)

The most important thing is the fun. The kids can make a mess because the whole table is covered with wax paper and everyone enjoys sneaking a pretzel or two.

It’s a good lesson about God too – if you think about it.

Here you have this funny looking pretzel. It’s brown, it’s bumpy and covered in salt. It has little holes all over where air bubbles have popped.

But when you dip it into the chocolate, it transforms into something pretty, new, smooth and soft. God’s love is like that. White Dipped Pretzel Sticks

It’s amazing!

A great opportunity to share the story with your children.

A “teachable moment” as they say.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

And God Bless you and your family this Holiday season!
