Happy Homemaker Monday #15




Hey y'all! Hope everyone had a great weekend! I know we did! 



It's Monday again, so that means I'm joining up with {Sandra} today for another edition of Happy Homemaker! 

The Weather:::
its still dark outside but it's supposed to get up into mid 70's today! Thanks for sending all your heat down south, Sandra! ha

Thinking:::

I'm about to give up on my stockings :(

What I'm Reading:::
We started reading a chapter or two a night from the Bible with our big girl for her bedtime reading. This week is Exodus 20-26 

What I'm Creating:::
I'm so close to finishing my quilt I can taste it
I bought some red and green from RedHeart Yarns and so far {this} pattern has been disastrous for me... I got through the leg and heel just fine, but that's as far as my mind will comprehend... I've tried everything... I'm one day away from giving up :(

Something Fun to Share:::
Got some Christmas pictures taken after church yesterday and I'm hoping they turned out really well.

Homemaking Tips:::

I don't feel like I can say this enough... keep on top of everything, I let a few things go last week so I could hurry up and finish some crochet items before I felt too overwhelmed to do anything and I let the house go.. like bare minimum... {running the dishwasher and washing clothes bare minimum... only for 2 days though} and now I hate myself for it

From the Camera:::

yep, we're that family that brings football into every aspect of our lives :)

Looking around the house:::
I need to finish decorating the mantle. I have a ton of laundry to finish from hardly doing it last week and the kitchen needs to be cleaned up from breakfast

On my prayer list:::

That I don't let the stresses of the holidays turn me into a contentious woman

Bible verse, Devotional::
