Love Does for Kids by Bob Goff and Lindsey Goff Viducich {A Children's Book Review}

Love Does For Kids by Bob Goff and Lindsey Goff Viducich is the most recent book read in our house. Well, mostly read. It's intended to be a book that is read daily and we have read some each week but not finished yet. 

There are 46 "chapters" in the book where the authors share stories from throughout their lives that have helped to shape who they are as adults. While it is neat to read the stories, it is even more interesting to apply those "morals" to our lives now. Great for helping children build character. 

Mason and I both enjoyed this book. I would recommend to 5+ and I think it is a great book to read at breakfast or at bedtime. Those are the best times in our house, anyway. :) 

This book would be great for a Christmas gift for a family with children!

Decorating For Christmas!

Last week, Matt and I had gotten all of the Christmas stuff out and then we both fizzled out. The boys were anxious so Friday night when they went to bed, we worked on it. We finished most of the main tree leaving some ornaments for the boys to put at the bottom. 


As expected, it was an exciting morning!!! 


Then we moved to the boys' room. While we got the tree fluffed and lights on, Maddox fed Rudi the Christmas bear. :) 

We gave the boys their ornaments for the year. Maddox: a hamburger and Mason: Darth Vader. :) 


We are all thrilled. We have a few outside items to put out but overall, it's done!

The Morgan's Movements 2018 {Week 45}

This is how Maddox insisted on getting dressed last Monday morning. Sweatshirt with hood THEN fireman helmet. 

When Mason had his last day of speech, we waited and played in the lobby. Maddox was WILD! 

Look at this. 😍

When we hit the library that afternoon for a Harvest Party, Mason took some time to read. Love this so much. 

Monday morning when the boys were eating, I was doing a few chores and heard Maddox say "Let's pray!" 

We also went to vote that morning. They were my big helpers. 

It was rainy so when we got back, we painted Christmas ornaments. 

Wednesday story time was awesome because two firefighters came. We have seen several fireman demonstrations and this was the BEST! 









There were a few crafts when we finished so we stopped to do one. 

Thursday was a day in the life day for an Instagram account that I follow. These were the posted of our every day life that I posted. 




Thursday night, Matt took the boys to make slime while I was working. They had a blast!!


Friday morning, these two were matching and looking sharp for Mason's well check. 

Chilling out before the flu shot came. They both screamed their heads off. 

Mason recovered well and did great the rest of his appointment. I'll post his stats in his 5 year old update! 


We rewarded ourselves with a Target trip to look at Christmas decorations and to start on some Christmas presents for our friends. 

A year ago Saturday I took a picture of Maddox eating yogurt so naturally I needed one that day! 

Saturday morning I did Mason's birthday book update and he answered some questions and signed his name. :) 

Then they dressed up like Daddy. 

Saturday night, Matt and I made a semi-homemade dinner with healthy Chinese food. So good!
