a happy day...

"A happy day is when my only engagement is my family."  
 - - Abigail Adams - -

I love this quote and it totally sums up our week of Thanksgiving.  Granted, yesterday erupted in overtired complaints and contentions...but overall we all just enjoyed a break from anything other than FAMILY.  There is so much to be grateful for.  I hope I can keep that grateful spirit with me as we head into the hustle and bustle of December.

To add to the craziness, for our countdown/advent we decided to make it "25 Days of Service."  Most days this month the kids will "open" a service activity for the day.  This holiday season we will decorate Grandpa's apartment, visit a newly made widow, clean another family's bathrooms, have the missionaries over for dinner, and do a secret act of kindness for one another.  Hopefully this will add to the holiday cheer rather than adding more of the unnecessary to our already filled days. 

Happy December!
