Thankful for St Therese paper dolls from a friend, whose daughter already cut out!
The girls played these all weekend!
Thankful it's actually Friday!
After not so a great week at school....let's just say the older kiddos just aren't liking
the more work thing, that the 2nd month of school brings.
We had to lay some ground rules and make a schedule.
I'm not that great at schedules...especially when I have to get up earlier.
Thankful for girlies who love to play in the dirt...
Thankful always thankful for cuteness...
Thankful for fall Sedum growing....
Thankful for babies who love babies and hugging and snuggling,
I still rock this baby to sleep for her naps.
OK, she's not really a baby, she's 2 now...but, but, she's such a baby to all of us still!
I can't resist, she loves it and she goes to sleep usually within
She'll probably only be napping for another year or so....soaking all that love in while I can!
Thankful for my favorite kitchen tool....the hamburger masher!!
My husband likes his hamburger mashed into smaller pieces,
I grew up with bigger chunks of meat I guess and learned to do it that way.
I really like using this tool and he likes it too!
Thankful I finally got a new can opener!!
After making chili a couple weeks ago, and opening all those cans of beans,
I realized it probably was my opener that was bad, not opening the cans very good at all!
It's actually been like that for years. Terrible, I know!
I looked in the store and new ones are only like $6.99!!
Now, my cans open very nicely.
Why didn't I do that sooner?
Thankful my kiddos love these
very healthy very quick and easy ramen noodle soup cup thingy's
Makes for a very quick lunch!
Thankful....OK for more cuteness...
Thankful for dried up hydrangeas that still look beautiful on the table...
and 2 little blooms I found the other day and put in my window, a little bit of summer leftover...
OK Thankful for a little more cuteness...
Thankful for big brothers who love their baby sisters and
baby sisters who love their big brothers!
Thankful I got tired of no bangs and at a weak moment cut some!!
Thankful they didn't turn out too bad!
Thankful for this clay pot from Jedi's friend, John, what a sweetie to give this to me!!
Thankful for our fall trees and for fall weather to enjoy...
And since it's fall, Thankful my husband let me order some much needed HUGE maternity clothes online.
They came in yesterday.
I think I ordered a size too big, but it's hard to tell how big I'll be in December!!
Thankful after taking the kiddos to Tae Kwon Do and getting out of the van,
and stepping right on a scooter,
(that was not put away)
(I admit it, my kids don't put their outside things away!!! Their idea of putting it away is somewhere in the garage...hence the scooter right outside my van door)
I didn't break my leg!!!!
I actually cut my big toe (I have a really big big toe, I know)
on the bottom, really, really bad, there was blood everywhere, literally.
All that kept going through my head
(besides the kiddos MUST clean this garage up this weekend)
was Thank God I didn't break my leg again.
(I know, I shouldn't be wearing flip flops, but if I hadn't been, I figure I might have actually re-broken my leg)
Because the toe was open, it caught the scooter and ripped.
Thankful Jedi is going to his first homeschool youth group meeting tonite!
They are going to make rosaries for the missions and have a huge bonfire and play outside games in the dark!
I made these bars found in my newest Taste of Home magazine
Make them like Rice Krispie treats,
but use these ingredients
and add 3 TBSP peanut butter to the marshmallows while melting them!
Perfect for fall...
You thought I was kidding about all those appointments?
Here they are!!
(it's actually on 2 pages)
I have 32 to be exact starting Oct 3rd.
It actually doesn't get too bad til the week of Thanksgiving, then I will be there for
3-4 appts/week, they combined some of them on the same days.
Thankful for these appointments, it is to monitor the baby and me and that is so important!!
It is so worth it.
Thankful for perfect bananas!!!
with the cooler weather, the bananas are lasting a day or two longer!
Our local grocery store has them lined up right by the registers, so they are so tempting and
I really love that they do that!
It's so much better than something else they could put there!
Thankful for remnants of summer....
And Thankful for fall all around!
A time to remember to be thankful
A pause in the week for praise,
thanksgiving and thinking positively
in addition to the normal daily praise
we need to give God.
St Padre Pio, pray for us
Rosario, a longtime reader, has a Tupperware give away, visit her today!
God bless you, have a great weekend!!
We have church pictures tomorrow....trying to coordinate 7 people to look semi match.
I don't like to do the typical all jean people or all white shirt people...
so the 2 youngest are in rainbow shirt dress thingy's and the 2 oldest girls will be in purple
and the rest will be in black.
We'll see how that goes!!!
Thankful this long post is over.
