Thanks for participating in Mt. Hope Chronicles' first ever Mr. Linky!
Feel free to snag the large image above or the smaller image on my sidebar to add to your post. I would also love it if you linked back to Mt. Hope Chronicles in your post. Then come back and add your link below anytime. Remember to link directly to your Living Lovely with Family post and not to your main blog page. That will make it easier for visitors to find your ideas if they come by later on. We will start our new theme with a new Mr. Linky next Thursday.
If you don't have a blog, or don't care to share a link, you are more than welcome to add thoughts or ideas in the comments.

When I think about the days I spend at home with my boys, the activity that stands out in my mind is working in the kitchen together. Hardly a day goes by that one or all of the boys aren't by my side (on the counter, climbing a footstool...) helping with everyday food tasks. It might be something as routine as scrambled eggs for breakfast, something as simple as a pot of tea, something as fun as cookies, or something as special as birthday cake.
Another routine we share is opening the shutters in the front room each day. We shout 'Good Morning, World!' as the sun (or light, at least) streams in. It is our way of cheerfully starting our day together.
Russ and I have been attending a Sunday school series entitled Faith @ Home. Each week, we are given ideas to share our faith at home with our children. The first class suggested saying a blessing aloud to our children daily. I am just beginning make this a habit in my life.
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
~2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
