This cookie jar from One Kings Lane is so cute and would match my kitchen perfectly. It’s only $12! If you buy something using this link you’ll get a $15 credit back to your account. Don’t blame me though if you end up eating more cookies than you bargained for.

12 Indoor Ideas for Toddlers 12-18 months

When I’m bad at being a woman… “I got down to the business of asking, “What does make me valuable, if not proving to the world what a woman can do?”

Need a reminder that the world isn’t falling apart because of Tuesday’s election? Well, start here: Goodbye, Christian America; Hello True Christianity My favorite sentence? “The kind of Christianity the world responds to is the authentic “love your neighbor” kind. Its appeal can’t be legislated through court battles and neither can courts stop its spread.”

Do we get her a pink Radio Flyer Trike, or a wagon, or a Cabbage Patch Doll, or a toy kitchen? I’ll probably be debating until December 24. It’s so fun to buy gifts for kids! (But really, people with toddler experience, is she too little still for a trike or a kitchen?)

When it’s hard to make friends at church. Anyone else ever struggled with this?

She will use the kitchen. Laura is already using the one we had for the boys. Save the trike for her birthday or Easter!

Bryleigh got a radio flyer trike for her birthday...When she sits on it or I should say, IF she sits on it, she just waits for someone to push her. SHe loves wagons, but see above for her actual USE of it... When she walks into any room, nursery, or waiting room she b-lines for the toy kitchen and will play there for HOURS!!!! (so that's what Bryleigh is getting for Christmas)

Gifts for toddlers are tough! I think a toy kitchen would be good and you can wait for her bday for a trike (since its cold out anyway)

I had just read that article on America and Christianity before coming here, Lesley. It is a good take on how people view Christianity in America. He is so right on saying too that a proper view won’t come from legislation or court rulings that try to enforce recognition (the public prayers, creches, etc.). But I disagree with one of his sentiments. I would not “be happy to see the Ten Commandments back on the courthouse wall”. The good news of Jesus Christ does not point to the law but to Jesus himself and what he has done to set captives free from the law. Absent a full explanation of the gospel accompanying the posting of the law (which would not be appropriate on a government building in America), I think it would serve more to confuse rather than illuminate. That’s actually underscored nicely by the rest of his article. What draws people to God is his love and mercy and grace. His work through us in that regard is more powerful and less likely to confuse than any number of crosses in public parks or Christmas displays at City Hall. Tim
