Favorite Things - January Linkup Party

YAY! Can you believe it's time for another Favorite Things Party?!?!?!  Before y'all know it we'll be sharing our favorite beach reads and sunless tanners.  It's inevitable :)
This month, by favorite thing is SUPER RANDOM.  THIS sandwich cutter is the BEST. THING. EVER. 
My boys are super picky and they refuse to eat the crusts on their sandwiches.  I try to be all hardcore and just leave them on there for them to eat... but then they end up leaving about half of their sandwich attached to said crust and it's a huge waste.  

I randomly came across this sandwich cutter at WalMart before Christmas and it's AWESOME!  My boys love the puzzle pieces and it cuts the crust off without wasting a lot of the sandwiches like some of the other shaped cutters I have.

On Amazon it comes in a package of three cutters for under $10.  Can't beat that!
Mine has been through the dishwasher MULTIPLE times and is holding up perfectly.

My second thing to share is the book "Praying Circles Around Your Children" by Mark Batterson.  A friend of mine was RAVING about it on Facebook and I quickly ordered the eBook for my phone.  The book is TEENY TINY but is packed with great advice on intentionally praying for your kids...

“You’ll never be a perfect parent, but you can be a praying parent. Prayer is your highest privilege as a parent. …Prayer turns ordinary parents into prophets who shape the destinies of their children, grandchildren, and every generation that follows. …Your prayers for your children are the greatest legacy you can leave.”

I posted about my planner yesterday, and the pens I talked about are most definitely one of my very favorite things.  They're a little over $10 - but totally worth it. 

And just because... here are a few pictures of three of my very favorite people :)




Link up with us and share your favorites from this month!!!

  10. Love those sandwich cutters! Random question...we are thinking about getting Hudson the same bed that Luke and Mason have. Do you like it? Do y'all ever pull it out to make it a bigger bed?
