In an effort to better keep the Sabbath day holy as a family we worked on this Sweet Sabbath poster. Each candy included a Sabbah-appropriate activity, including "listen to good music," "read to your brother," "play a family game," "visit someone," "write a thank you card," "say prayers," "think about Jesus during the sacrament," and many others. As the kids completed each task (and on Sunday's only), they colored in the candy picture. Once all the candies were colored in they earned a movie party with friends. The Sabbath is a special day!
While dad was out of town for work, mom and the kids went down to the Woodlands near Houston. We stayed at the lovely Embassy Suites where we gorged on free breakfast bacon, swam in the heated pool and relaxed to movies. We also visited the Houston Children's museum, hiked/crawled through the "woods" (where we saw snakes and petted horses), & had a few memorable pit stops.
