I kicked Max off of the couch so I could sleep there (::gasp::) and so he went an tore apart a napkin then took a nap in Eva's very precious, very off-limits pink chair. And he's the least cranky one in the house today.
- High Street Hymns is releasing a new advent/Christmas CD and could use some help--like, in the next 24 hours. You get stuff if you give! (Pledge $10 and get to download the album before it comes out; pledge $20 and you get a signed copy of the album and the pre-release download, and the deal keeps getting sweeter as you go up.) See video below. Their last Advent/Christmas album was fantastic--listen for free here. And for good measure, here's one of my favorites:
- The Worthy Mission to Get Joseph Kony - This guy looks at our involvement in the hunt for the LRA from a good perspective.
- Chicken Parmesan Skillet Pot Pie - Somebody pinned this on Pinterest and somebody else put it on Facebook and I don't remember who any of those people were but this thing is amazing. If we'd had a 2-year Mexican marriage my husband would have definitely opted to extend it after he ate it.
- Why John Piper links Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Sanctity of Life Sunday: "Paradoxically, by de-absolutizing the bonds of race and family, Jesus is able to create and purify bonds within and across those lines stronger than the most absolute human commitments."
