Meal Plan Monday #26

Hello everyone, I've been a little MIA from this little blog over the last few weeks because I just need a little break but I'm still posting Meal Plan Monday so anyone who looks forward to it as well as for myself and easy access to what we are having this week. Also, I am not staying completely to the menu every week this month because things have come up that cause it to change so you might see things numerous weeks in a row but we are not eating them numerous weeks, they just get moved from last week to this week since I've already bought the supplies :-)

Monday: Cheesy Broccoli and Cheese Casserole (Prime example...I haven't made it yet this month and it sounds good.)
Tuesday: Crispy Beef
Wednesday: Tacos
Thursday: Baked Coconut Chicken
Friday: Hamburger Soup (Family recipe that I keep meaning to blog but the pictures don't make it look as appetizing as it is :-))
Saturday: Slow Cooker Roast Chicken

Some recipes that we used last week that weren't on the menu:
Potato Soup - This one is super tasty!!

House Update: Fall Entry Way

One of the things I was most excited about when we were looking at houses was getting to set up and decorate an entry table. I have always loved the pop of decoration when you walk into someone's home. Well when we bought this house, I was excited because there was a perfect little entry way area when you walked in the front door.

Once we painted the wall, I found this table and liked the look. Now I will say that I wouldn't recommend the table to anyone. It was a pain to put together (after putting together Ikea stuff which is a breeze compared) and the instructions were awful! Also, I'm concerned about how well it will hold up. I don't plan to be hard on it but it's just not the best quality product (lessons you learn when buying something online.)
 I just love sunflowers this time of year! They are so happy and just make me smile! Also do you see Maxwell's touch added in? Can you tell he's ready for hockey season?
 I created this subway art a few years ago and just add in new things we will be doing that year. It kind of serves as our bucket list for the fall as well.
 We originally filled this basket with apples from our Apple Picking Day but those are now gone and have been replaced with pumpkins.
What fall decor do you have out right now? Are you going to make any transitions to your decorations as we head into November?

Worship Wednesday: Truth in the Tinsel

For today's Worship Wednesday, I'm sharing about what I have planned to do with Aston to celebrate the Advent season. I am so excited about Christmas this year (well every year really) but this year, Aston will understand soooo much more and I am so excited to use this tool*. I purchased Truth in the Tinsel last year and we did a few of the crafts but with a very fussy new baby, I was overwhelmed with life so we didn't get to much. Also, last year Aston was 2 and the concepts were a little over his head. While we had some good conversations about baby Jesus, that was as far as his little brain could get. This year, with his love for his Jesus Storybook Bible and his new understanding and comprehension of Bible stories, we are excited to work on this together this year and teach him the reason for celebrating Christmas!

The ebook sells for $7.99 and has all the instructions and for each day's ornament craft as well as activities and Bible stories to go along with each. There is a supply list and then a supply list for each day. I have collected all the supplies for each day into zip top bags so and they are all ready to go so that all I have to do is pull them out each day and not scramble to get the materials when it's time. Yes this took some planning and a little prep time (about 1.5 hours total) but I think it will be great help for us each day. This is why I'm sharing about it now so that if you are interested, you too can get yourself prepared :)

Truth in the Tinsel also has a Facebook page where other moms share their ideas and how they modify the crafts for younger or older kids or how they change them up from year to year.

I hope this gives you an idea of something to do to make Christmas more intentional for your family. 56 days until Christmas!!! and 32 until Advent Sunday!
