Black Friday thoughts

Here are my philosophical thoughts for the morning: we celebrate thanksgiving with gluttony, and follow it with greed on Black Friday. How many deadly sins can Americans fit into one week? It's discouraging. I want to be intentional about teaching my children that we have enough, in fact much much more than we truly need.

I'm proud of Juliet. She's made some great strides in her penmanship lately! It's wonderful to watch her grow.

I don't think that explaining the religious component of holidays is working out so well. I told the girls that Christmas is a day to celebrate Jesus' birthday, and now Juliet has been talking all day about planning a surprise birthday party for Jesus and jumping out of the closet to yell "Surprise!" when he walks through the door :)
