It took me far too long to do Honeybee and Dimples’ hair! I did twists (that are somewhat like cornrows) on Honeybee’s hair and mini-braids on Dimples’. Honeybee was not impressed, but Dimples was quite happy; she wanted me to add some “clicky-clacky” beads, but I had to work quickly. I divided her head into six sections with elastics against her scalp. Then I divided each section into three and made three separate braids in each for a total of 18 small braids.
I want to make one quick plug for the AHOPE Holiday Cards, which you can view on the AHOPE Store site. If you have a blog, we would be grateful if you would write a post promoting them. For every five sets of cards that are sold as a result of your blog, we’ll send you one of our wonderful AHOPE Bracelets. Just ask your readers to put your blog name in the comment section of the order form. You can also copy the photo of the card from our store site or from my blog. Thank you everyone for your help. We already have our 2009 cards in the works, so we would love to sell all of the cards we have printed. With every set of cards sold, a significant donation goes to support the children of AHOPE.
I’ll be back on Saturday night, just in time to sleep, make it to church by 8:00 AM, and then get our Christmas tree. It’s going to be a great weekend.
In closing, here are a few things for which I am thankful to God: warm water, appliances that work while I sleep, cars that will get us safely to visit our family this weekend, my big kids who are such a joy and a blessing, my little kids who are a joy, blessing, and source of incredible energy, my husband whom I love so much, security, salvation, fellowship with my Christian friends, photography, my Ethiopian children’s birth families, my Sonicare toothbrush, apples, Ibuprofen (Russ added that one), our children’s health, automated thermostats (another suggestion from Russ), my treadmill, the small DVD player next to my treadmill, my church, worship, Jesus.
