COTTAGE KITCHEN

In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

ELEANOR AND HER BOX

Hello...my name is Eleanor but my family calls me Ellie. My grandma takes care of me while my mommy and daddy have to work. Today she gave me a box to play with because I am getting bored with my old toys. I have really grown and am just learning to crawl but don't have the hang of it just yet.

I really liked it. We pretended all kinds of fun things and grandma stayed close so I would not fall over in the box and get scared.

I was able to stand up in it and pretend I was a sea captain and then grandma rocked the boat and pretended we were in a storm cuz their was a storm passing over outside. Lots of thunder and lightning and rain also. I didn't get scared cuz grandma says GOD is always nearby to keep us safe.

The wind was strong so I sat down to get my bearings.
Mr. Moose wanted to come to but he is a little scary to me.
I think he is funny from a distance
It sure was fun playing with grandma today. I like when we go on adventures, as long as they are at her house. I am very shy and do not like strangers very much.

We had a nice blanket in the bottom for softness and a couple of books to read and a few toys and a flashlight that looked like a pumpkin . I thought it being a pumpkin and all it might taste good, my favorite food is sweet potatoes and pumpkin kind of tastes like that.

Thank you for letting me share my day with you but I am getting a little tired and gradma says it is nap time so I wll have to go. It sure is fun playing with my grandma.
She says her mommy was like that too and my daddy had a good time when he was with her.

Ellie, You are growing so fast! You are very blessed to have a grandma who loves you so and plays fun games and reads to you.

So cute!!! And what better box for a little girl than one that says " purses "! Sounds like a fun time. For CT's first birthday, Daniel and Breezy came over and brought a truck load of boxes and went into his room and with some duct tape, built an entire fort made of boxes just for CT! It took up his whole room but what a perfect gift for a kid!

What fun! And what a cutie...... I remember when my granddaughter was that age we had a huge refrigerator box that she just loved to play in...her toys were forgotten but that huge box became a castle and whatever else!
