Play-doh bakery

So, today feels "normal".
My girls made cookies in their Play-doh Bakery

Heart shaped chocolate chip:


Colorful cut-outs:


And, the treasure, my four-year-old's prayer before lunch:

"Dear Lord...thank you for our food... that we can be with our family... and for the Play-doh that mommy and daddy gave us for Christmas."

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. ~Philipians 4:8

I love children's prayers. They're right to the point!

that's awesome. We made play-doh snowmen the other day since we don't get enough snow here in SC to make a real one!
that little prayer reminds me to be grateful for the little things!

That is wonderful that you had a good day.

In my child's prayer...one thing would have been added..."that the play-doh we got for Christmas isn't dry yet..."

:) Have a good weekend Andrea!

Hi,
I just came across your blog this evening, and what a refreshing "place" to come to. Thank you for sharing your ponderings and prayers about motherhood.

God sure has a lot of work to do in me still regarding this area. But I pray I will be open to what He wants me to learn.

Your blog is an inspiration like a drink of water in a dry land.
Thank you.
