Thankful for the bright yellow that has
illuminated our living room these past couple weeks!
We had a couple windy days though now so, the leaves are all off the tree!
Thankful for our trampoline!!
I still say it's the best thing we've ever bought!
So sad, it must come down this weekend, before the snow flies
(which will be soon I think)
Thankful I went through all my tons of cookbooks, you know the ones
that tempt you at the checkouts?
I have a ton of them
And I rarely use them
But I would have bought more if I wouldn't have looked through these
to remind myself that I don't need any more!
Like these Holiday ones, I gave them all away, I've never used them!
Thankful for toddlers that still fall asleep in my arms....I love that, I cherish it.
(yes, that's my boob there)
Thankful for Amish Friendship bread!
The kiddos think it's the best bread they've ever had....
I'm making more, in fact tomorrow, but not so sure I'll keep it going.
(I don't like the bags on my counter all the time!)
Thankful our redneck birdbath is actually empty now....this right before we emptied it,
see the ice? It's been getting pretty cold overnight here in MN
Thankful for running kiddos all over the yard and through the leaves!
Thankful for these last days of fall, the bright sunshine and beautiful leaves to play in...
And Thankful for warm soup to have in the evenings!
(I just posted the recipe over on Kitchen Blessings)
Thankful for Lite Brite!! Now that it's so dark, so early, it's a fun thing for kiddos to play,
we've used up all the papers it comes with, but we use construction paper cut into squares and they can
either make their own designs and then poke them or make it random!
Thankful I didn't explode when this full Blueberry smoothie went crashing out of one of the kiddos hands
splashing all over my leg, and every cupboard in the kitchen, and down the hallway and onto the
kiddos new winter boots!!
I actually smiled and grabbed my camera...
What else could I do?
We are still finding spots we've missed,
Oh, and did I mention this happened 5 minutes before we had to leave for Band yesterday?
Oh, it did.
Thankful my wedding ring still fits...my ankles and feet you could pop with a pin though!
I didn't think I'd retain water in the winter....I was wrong...
(Oh, gosh, look at my dry wrinkly hands!! I have my dad's side of the family's fat farmer hands!)
Thankful for cute, warm hats and mittens on little girls and
Thankful Sweetie Pie loves wearing them this year!
Thankful my roses are still blooming, even though they've lost their leaves!!
Thankful mostly that this week is almost done, it felt like a Monday today!
I am thankful for happy, healthy kiddos, even if they are all stinkers and drive me crazy most of the time!
Thankful I have
7 weeks, 4 days left
til this sweet baby comes out!
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.
