WE FOUND JESUS!
As I described in an earlier post, we had a few missing pieces from our nativity sets. Well now everyone's been found and are back in place!!! SO EXCITING!
Plus, we started the collection basket as I had described earlier - of items lying around the house out of place. The first item in the basket? LUKE'S MOUTHWASH!!!! He LOVES his mouthwash! In fact, when we first got him a bottle a couple months ago, he was SO excited that he used an entire bottle in ONE WEEK!!! YIKES!!! I guess I wasn't clear enough when I explained that he should do it only ONCE each day. Well, he left his bottle and cap thrown aside on his sink a couple days ago and I snatched it right up to toss it into the basket. Several other items have since been added- a pair of Lydia's shoes with some dolls stuffed inside and a card from our Memory game.
I DO still need a clever name for this collection basket. hmmm...
It may be strange, but it's actually FUN for me to glance around and devilishly look for items to grab. I just hope the novelty doesn't wear off before the lesson is learned!
or better yet...
