Blessings - Let's call her Twirly

Sometimes in the midst of pain, you really need to see the blessings in life.

So - a few "blessings" to share:
Last weekend was costume time - our kids went as Batman, Catwoman and Robin. And Robin's costume is completely homemade! (well - except for the eye mask) Don't tell anyone, but mommy and daddy have enjoyed some of the fruit of their trick-or-treating labor.

Yesterday we took the family to the Shedd Aquarium. What a great time!!! And, thanks to a pass that Caden received last year in school, the whole family got in to all special exhibits and the museum for free! What might have been a $150 outing - was only the $5 we paid for meter parking and the gas to get us there. Below is a picture of Penguin Will at the Penguin Polar Playland exhibit (yes - ideas are already spinning for next year's halloween costumes).

Ellie announced last week that not only will the baby be a girl, but that the baby's name will be Twirly. We all laughed.

These were needed breaks that help to refocus our thoughts on the present, and off of what the future holds. Jesus understood this all too well - "do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own". (Matt 6:34)
