Comfort Zone

Man, I love "HOME".  You know what I mean.  At home you can be yourself.  Not worry about anything and feel safe.  I guess you could call it your comfort zone.  As soon as we walk in the door, we get right down to being comfortable!  Sunday was no different.  After church, we ran to get a bite to eat and brought it back home.  Gracie was soon asking for her passy and blanket because she was ready for a nap.  We didn't have church on Sunday night, so Chris went riding 4-wheelers with his friends.  My friend Ashley called and wanted us to go see the movie Tangled with her and her girls, but I wasn't real sure Gracie would make it through the whole movie, so we took a rain check.  We opted for a quiet Sunday at home.

Before Christmass, the girls and I tried to make sugar cookies to decorate.  The didn't turn out well at all.  The batter never formed a dough and we just had a plain mess.  I wanted Emily to decorate something, so we made brownies and cut Christmas shapes out of them. 

Emily always likes the batter better than the actual brownies.

Once Gracie got up, we got down to decorating.  See what I mean about "comfort zone" it's the middle of the day and we're in our PJ's.

Finished product.  Doesn't it look great...haha!  It may not be the prettiest, but they sure were fun to make.

I love spending time with my girls.  Emily has to go back to school tomorrow and I do believe that Gracie is going to have a hard time with it.  Although they fight like cats and dogs, Gracie loves Emily and Emily loves Gracie.  The first thing Gracie asks me every morning is, "Where's Emmy?".  And if you ever give Emily something, she'll say, "What about Gracie?" 

On the days that all they do is fight, I remind myself of these sweet little moments. 

Have a good night y'all!

  1. Home is great! I am just learning that too. I have always been a busy body and wanted to be doing something going somewhere, not anymore.

    We start preschool back up tomorrow, not looking forward to it.

    Have a great week!
