Book Review - A Christmas Prayer by Amy Parker

I got this book free in exchange for a review from www.booksneeze.com. Anyway, so here goes:

This is a book that has a simple rhyme on each page of several elements of Christmas. I love that the pages are baby friendly. Considering Ri is only a year old, she would tear normal pages. They're thicker and more cardboard-like. The outside of the book was kinda puffy, making even more for a baby-friendly book. Ri really loved turning the pages herself. :)

Each page goes over one element of Christmas - angels, Jesus, Mary, etc. It's really a very cute book and very simple, rhyming words. I just kinda wish that the book went into a little more detail. But I guess for a smaller child, this is really all they need.

Overall, it was a very cute book. The illustrations were really neat - like a sketch almost. I think we will probably bring this book out at Christmas. Who knows, maybe it will become a favorite?!

When I first turned the camera on, she knew it and gave this shy smile...so cute!  She definitely knows the camera!

Intent



There was once a time when I wondered when Rilynn was actually being disobedient and knowing exactly what she was doing.  I mean, being born sinful I knew I wouldn't have to teach her to be defiant or disobey.  But once I saw this face, it was pretty clear.  If this isn't the face of intent, I don't know what is!

*By the way, this was after she had been told "no" by Daddy and she was reaching for what she wanted anyway.*

We are working on pointing her towards obedience and a desire to seek and please the Lord...I know it's a long road but we conitnually pray for God's wisdom in this area.

Go Team!



This was at Septtro's first home football game this season (last Friday).  She LOVED when the band played.  :)

Our good friends, the Naisangs, made her t-shirt for us.  Isn't it cute?!
