Continuing To Count Sweet Blessings

Today I am posting a Marriage Monday at Woman to Woman Ministries.  Please take a moment to join us.

I am also very exciting to be guest posting today at Stringer Mama for the Birthday Gifts for Jesus series.  Join me as I talk about some things my family does to keep Christ in CHRISTmas.

Continuing to count my blessings:
  1. Serving Thanksgiving (eve) dinner to our church community.
  2. A beautiful Thanksgiving with my family.
  3. Sleeping in the morning after a holiday.
  4. Christmas movies.  Or as my sweet sister, Lisa, says: cheesy Christmas movies.  Love ya, Lisa!  {smiles}
  5. Spending the entire day Saturday relaxing with my family.
  6. Hot cocoa with peppermint marshmallows.
  7. Pumpkin pie.
  8. Decorating for Christmas with my husband and kids.
  9. Beautiful white Christmas lights.
  10. Finally starting a wonderful book that has sat on my shelf waiting to be read since May.  

What are you thankful for today?

Review and Giveaway:
Today's giveaway is for the kiddos! Cooper and Me is a new children's series written and illustrated by twelve year old Alexa Peters.  Alexa writes books to entertain children and help them navigate through life's everyday challenges.  The winner of today's contest will win two Cooper and Me books.  The first one is Cooper and Me: Cooper helps his owner as she starts school.  The second one is Cooper and Me and the Winter Adventure: Cooper and his K9 friends have some winter fun.  These books will make a great treat for the kids or even a great Christmas gift.  If you do not have little ones, think about the neighbors or a child at church.

To win the Cooper and Me books, simply comment on today's post for entry.  For extra entries, share the giveaway on Facebook and/or Twitter, then come back and leave separate comments telling me you shared the giveaway.  The winner will be announced tomorrow.

Sweet Blessings~
