Outside my window. . .blustery wind.

I am hearing...children playing.

I am thinking. . .What a awesome, brave, and over whelming sacrifice Jesus made for us.

I am thankful for. . .Jehovah and Jesus loving mercy for us.

I am remembering. . .Jesus' torture his last hours as a man.

I am hoping. . .that the children will feel Jehovah and Jesus love for them tonight.

I am creating. . .a new skirt-yup finished a new skirt just minutes before memorial, haha I really love it, it's a nice sweater knit very warm.

On my mind. . .teaching my children about Jehovah and Jesus enough they will want to dedicate their lives to God, and truly love him.

Noticing that. . .I need to clean this house!

From the kitchen. . .sandwiches.

One of my favorite things. . .knowledge of the truth, and God's purpose for our future.

A few plans for the rest of the week. . .Cleaning the house, collecting more bento, an healthy food things.

What I am reading. . .My Book of Bible Stories.

Picture for thought I am sharing. . .
Vince and RJ at Disney on Ice.

Muffin Tin Monday

In the tin-
Top Row-
Green Pea Pod, Yellow Bunny Peep, Ham Roll Ups.

Bottom Row-
String Cheese, Chicken Biscuits, Baby Cucumbers.

Whew, been a long time since I have posted. I've been working on trying to eat healthier again, I need to lose weight badly! Looking around online for ideas for healthy kids lunches, I found Muffin Tin Meals. And a link up party for Mondays on them. This week I mainly just started getting a few of the items needed for them. So this week it's a little lame, but as time goes on I'll work on getting more things in them, and buying more accessories to make them cuter too. This week wasn't that healthy. But, the kids loved them! I had really wanted them to have strawberries too, but the ones at the store looked awful, so they were out. Again hopefully I'll improve as time goes on. So to get to it, here's the kids MTM this week. They ALL loved it. And ate every bite. they asked for more meat several times, so they ate about 6 times the amount of meat you see in the photo below. But, other then that, this is basically what they ate. Surprisingly enough only RJ went for the bunny first, the girls saved theirs for last.

I also worked on a healthy lunch for myself as well. I didn't take a photo but maybe I'll start. I had a ham and cheese sandwich-whole wheat bread, organic smoked cheddar, and the olive oil mayo. With hummus and sliced cucumbers. My dessert was two Lemon Lavender Miss Meringue Cookies, they were awesome!

We have had a awesome couple of weeks. Saturday before last we seen Disney on Ice with the kids. They loved it. Had a ton of fun.

Then Wednesday was Vince and I's 12 anniversary. He brought me some really hilarious cards. I bought him some tie tacks from the antique mall. On Saturday he took me to Yoder to celebrate. We ate at the Amish restaurant and I went to the thrift store there that was so much fun. They moved locations. But, their prices were as good as ever. I got a vintage thermos with the glass inside, for 50 cents! I love the vintage ones. Lela a hand made sweater. She's been needing one for meetings cause she outgrew all her meeting ones. Myself three really cute sweaters. And real tupperware for only 25 cents. A cute little coat rack for the girls. And Belle another dresser scarf as well. Myself some really cute hot pads, and on and on. Two full bags, plus the coat rack all less then 15 dollars total. I love that thrift shop! I can't wait to go back again.

Then today we went to the Dillon's Market Place in Derby and ate dinner. Their salad bar is awesome. I loved the spinach egg salad. And Vince really liked the prime rib dinner he had. Then I was able to get the grocery shopping for the week done as well. I think that will start being our lunch/dinner spot on Sundays. The salad bar is so tastey. And they have pork loin or prime rib at the deli (hot meals) on Sundays and Vince really liked his. And then I can right there get my shopping done too. Stores used to have cafeterias when I was growing up and that's how my mom always did the weekly shopping too. But, then they went away for a while. I'm kind of glad Dillon's brought it back. They have a really nice organic and health food section too. I especially like the bulk dry goods section.
