Happy Birthday to my 14 YEAR OLD! Anna Elisabeth remains a source of humor, love, gentleness, and helpfulness in our family. (Did I mention humor? ☺) At 14, she loves literature, choir, Latin, her friends and family, and Jesus. Needless to say, I feel so blessed to be her mom. Happy Birthday, beautiful girl!
Her older sister's birthday party starts any minute. Yet she's blissfully unaware of the teenagers about to invade her space. 😂
This is the nerdiest book I've bought in a long, long time. 😂
Trying to write an article, but she has insisted on sitting in my lap, and stealing my granola. I'm afraid the girl knows her mama is a pushover.
It's 5 pm, I'm already in my pajamas, and I'm drinking tea while reading Ryan T. Anderson's upcoming book. Which, by the way, I heartily recommend. (The book, that is--though I do also endorse the tea and pajamas!)
Fun with popcorn.
This book is SO, so good. For years, as an evangelical Christian, I'd wondered when (and why) the early church would have gone off the rails, in terms of doctrine. This book presents a historical case against this common misconception, in a captivating and accessible way. #nerdsofinstagram
Secret ballot voting to determine the next family game to play.
Sketching with his new art pencils. One of my favorite parts of being a mom is when my kids are good at things that I never was.
This game. 😂 If you have a British literature loving teen, this will provide many hours of entertainment. Also, it's quite fun for adults too.
I love Christmas break so much. Also? Where has the time gone?! #sisters #siblingsmakethebestfriends
Denver friends! Just picked up some goodies from this shop, which just so happens to be around the corner from my house. SO many delicious (and beautiful) Christmas desserts, incredible family-owned business with wonderful customer service, and a great way to support Jack Phillips and, ultimately, religious freedom. Be sure to stop by this season! #istandwithjack #alliancedefendingfreedom
On the eve of St. Nicholas' feast day. #somanyshoes
