a festivus for the rest of us
Yesterday was fall festivities day at the Dixon house. Noah and I spent the afternoon making scarecrow cookies and delivering them to our neighbors. Then, after some tasty burritos for dinner, Noah and Duane skillfully carved our 3 pumpkins (Duane's much better and safer with large knives than I am). I even gave toasting the pumpkin seeds a shot, but they turned out to be pretty disgusting. Ah well. The day ended with the pumpkin lighting ceremony. Noah is at such a fun age for things like this. I'm trying to focus more on the boys rather than on the less significant things I have been focusing on recently. I think yesterday was a good start. I have such sweet boys. I want to do my best to soak up every day I have with them and give them the kind of mom they deserve. I know that it is only by the grace of God that I will manage to do either of those things, which makes me even more grateful to know that his grace is sufficient!
