Apples. Kisses. Devotions.

We harvested our apples from our little one year old tree. We were not expecting to get any because we had just planted it the fall before.
Our cute little Honeycrisp tree gave us three basketfuls of apples! And the best part is the kids love them! They are now Dada's favorite too.
The cute littles loving and reading to each other.

I just wanted to remember the sweet times we spend together in the mornings doing our devotions. Since I didn't write about it before, I've already forgotten when we started doing them. We started out with little devotional books geared toward kids years ago. When Dada joined our morning devotion time he started reading a chapter or two of the New Testament every day. Now we are on I Corinthians! We used to call these times Cereal Devotions because the kids would munch on dry cereal sitting in little nests they made out of blankets all over the floor while we read the Bible. In the last couple of months, the kids stopped bringing cereal and just snuggled on the couch. Eben and Kivi and Dada take turns reading and then in descending age order a different person prays for our prayer requests from the prayer journal each day. It's a great time of quiet (usually… it's louder now that Bergie comes to devotions), rest, and listening to God's Word with the Lord and our children before we start our day.

Wow! What great apples and so many! Honeycrisp are fantastic!

So sweet about your devotions. It is amazing how deep kids can think and understand.

I love how cuddly everyone looks! I can already imagine how cozy it is in there with the fall rain and mist and everyone in their jammies. So cute and great idea Abby and Peter. :D

I absolutely love your site.. Great colors & theme.

Did you build this site yourself? Please reply back as I'm wanting to create my own site and would like to know where you got this from or exactly what the theme is called. Thank you!
