Scrapbooking, Ohio and Fight Club Graduation
Happy December! Can you believe we are in the last month of the year? We enjoyed a full but fun November. How did your November go? Today is my monthly Friday Favorites post where I share my five favorite things from the previous month. Scrapbooking, Ohio and Fight Club Graduation are just a few of my favorite things from this past month. Read on to see what my other favorites are.
Every Fall I host a Scrapbook Retreat which is always so refreshing. I love catching up with the ladies that come. There is always lots of laughs and food. Someone asked me the other day how many retreats I have hosted. This retreat was my 13th one. Can you tell I enjoy hosting the Scrapbooking Retreats?
My friend Tara and I headed to Ohio on a Wednesday night to spend some time with one of our best friends, Marcie. The trip was a blessing in so many ways. I know we went to love on Marcie but God used this trip to encourage and refresh us all.
Fight Club Graduation
Our church has a men’s ministry called Fight Club which is based on Nehemiah 4:14 which reads “After I looked things over, I stood up and said to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people, “Don’t be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
Jonathan was among the many men who graduated. I am so proud of all his work to get to this point. This is Jonathan’s 13th chapter of Fight Club. I love Jonathan’s desire to be more like Jesus and lead our family well.
Micaela’s Band Concert
Micaela, our oldest daughter, is a part of the 6th grade band at Goshen Middle School. She had her first concert and did so well. It was fun to watch Micaela play the clarinet.
Thanksgiving and Christmas Decorating
I love Thanksgiving! Maybe it’s because I love food. In all seriousness though, I do enjoy the time to be with family. I also love watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and football. We enjoyed a relaxing day home as a family. The next day, we headed to Ohio to spend time with my family. It was good to see everyone. Jonathan did some tree work for my sister and the kids enjoyed crafting.
After we got home from our Ohio trip, we spent time decorating for Christmas. The kids really get into it and especially like going on the roof to hang lights. I love the tree at nighttime. It’s so peaceful.
I hope you enjoyed reading about the five things I am grateful for this past month. It was fun writing about it all. How about you? What are you grateful for this past month? I would love to hear about your month. Please share in the comments below. Have a great weekend!
