  1. Hey, thank you for posting this because I have a hardback journal that I want to use for JUST THIS PURPOSE and I wasn't sure what kinds of quick, short notes to write. Now I have some examples to refer to!!!!

    I love the colors of your prayer blanket! (Also, what is a prayer blanket?)

    Gosh you and your family do so many fun things together!

    Those cookies look good. Did you make the frosting or is it pre-made? Looks delicious!!!! I like this one type of frosting and someone told me how to make it just mix powdered sugar and milk? Not sure. Anyway, I still don't know how to make cookie frosting. LOL

    1. A prayer blanket is like a prayer shawl. I prayed for the recipient as I was making the blanket.

      We made the frosting for the cookies. It is milk, powdered sugar and a bit of butter. Delicious :)

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love that blanket!
    Are you loving Disney+? ... did you like Frozen 2?
    I'm also dying to see Little Women!!! You're seeing all the good stuff this month.
    PS - be sure to link this up with us on Tuesday :)

    1. Thank you!
      Yes, we're loving Disney+. Frozen 2 was really good :)
      Little Women was awesome! Alas, we're probably done with the theater for a while.
      Yes, I will be linking up :)

  3. What a busy month! I love the colours you used in that blanket - I bet the person who received it was absolutely thrilled.

    1. Yes, it was a very busy month. I am enjoying slowing down a bit :)

  4. We got Disney+ too and my boys just love it! I haven't yet made it to see Frozen 2 but I have heard great things about it.

    1. I enjoyed Frozen 2 more than the first movie! Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. Yay, yay, yay!! So glad you are joining us for Sentence a Day. So nice to meet you! We really liked Little Women. Was surprised that my Prince C. wanted to see it. And last weekend we enjoyed the Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers movie, too. Glad to have some movies without violence and language issues.

    Laken is such a pretty name. Have never heard of it. I have a Brennyn (like Walter Brennan) and a Lauren. Poor Brennyn gets called everything but her name...Brenda, Briana, Britney.

    If you would like to receive emails with the link up codes each month for SaD, let me know. I send them out. My email is and I blog at Welcome aboard!
