Family Game Night

We have adopted Monday nights as our family game nights. Tonight was our fourth go at it! I love it so much and look forward to Monday nights. It has been such a great teaching tool for good sportsmanship, respecting others and just good 'ole fashion fun. Tonight we played Yahtzee Junior.
For the past year or so, I've had this yearning that another baby was needed in our family. It could be that a few people around me are having babies. It could be that at least every other year for the last 7 years, I've either been pregnant, or had a newborn. It could just be that I LOVE being pregnant and I love babies! But we made the choice along time ago that 3 was enough for us.. for various reasons. My main prayer has been for contentment and I've received it! (Thanks, God!) It's been so great to focus on the next stage of my life. To think about family vacations, to play family game night without a little person needing to be fed, to think about heading out to the beach for the day, without packing up the whole house. I love that my kids are so close in age, and that we are now ready to move on to bigger, more fun things as a family. I love our little family so very much!
