Thankful the play Oklahoma! Went wonderful!!!
Rosie here, in her receiving line
4-almost 3 hour shows done!
Everyone did an awesome job!
It was so fun to see!!
It was hard to watch anyone else when my daughter was on though!
She's experiencing some very sad days though, missing everyone
After months of practices together every week for hours!
Thankful we also got our piano recitals done this week too
Thankful for baby gates (and sisters who protect him)
Boy, he can climb these stairs very fast and if the gate is off,
he's there within seconds, he has a radar for gates and locks off!
Thankful for little girls with laps full of books waiting for me to read!
I love this!
Look at those eyes, the excitement!
(click on the picture to make it bigger!)
Thankful for standing babies, who smile and dance and sing every time!
See? Radar for unlocked things...see the lock hanging?
Thankful for curious, quick babies! (and locks)
While locking the other cupboard, he quickly got into this one!!
Thankful for old puzzles, they sit and play these for hours...Well, Sweetie Pie does!
Thankful for string games and big sisters to teach them!
I used to love doing these games, it's so fun to see them doing them now!
Kind of makes me feel old though...
Thankful for those curls, click on the picture, they are gorgeous!
(they are not as tight in the dry winter weather though)
Thankful warm weather is coming (20's)!!
Thankful for hand-me-downs from good friends!
Thankful for rosey cheeks after playing outside!
And Thankful for hot cocoa, to get them to come in!
Thankful even "almost teenagers" get rosey cheeks!
Awwww, isn't it cute?
Thankful for more book houses
(as our doll houses sit empty)
Thankful for this happy, happy little guy!!
Every time he stands by something, he dances and sings and giggles!
Thankful my floor does get swept eventually....
Enjoy the sweet baby giggles!

Thankful with less pumping breastmilk, I've had the chance to have a couple
"mommy dates" as we call them. It's time alone with each child,
not shopping or with any agenda, just time to listen and enjoy them
Jedi and I went to Mongo's to eat, then to the library, where we had time
to look and get all he wanted---usually we are reserving and running in and going quickly
It had been over a year since we had time to go alone and do something like this
It's catch up time
I told you, everyone has suffered this past year of pumping
After, we went to Cold Stone to get ice cream!
He's such an awesome kid!
Thankful I got to take "Rosie" on her "mommy date" too!
We went to Old Country Buffet (not my favorite, but she loves it!)
(I do like their salad!)
We went shopping, she had gift cards to spend!
She had been saving up her money for quite a while
and one thing she really wanted to do was buy fish.
She had $66, I donated 20 more bucks and
here's what she got!
We went to Petsmart and talked with the salesperson there
she asked questions, and wrote down the fish she is planning on buying
next week when the water is ready!
It was a fun time, she's also an awesome kid!
Thankful for more awesome kids and Thankful that "mommy time"
for these cuties can be shopping with mom at Sam's Club! (alone)
Thankful for Cheerio finders!
See? I told you that floor would get swept!
Thankful my kids have daily jobs
and weekly jobs!
(see Rosie doing dishes in the background)
I just couldn't do it all alone!
Thankful we are back into a routine with school
and didn't lose too much time with the surgeries
We should be done by the end of May!
(With a week off for the next surgery)
Thankful for messy table-food eaters!
He double fists it, mixing it all together!
He has peas and carrots and noodle remnants here from
homemade chicken noodle soup, avocado pieces,
and I think there is some banana in there too...
Thankful this mini trampoline keeps the kids hopping
on these cold winter days!
He loves watching her!
Oh, oh! NO NO!
Hahahahah! He giggles and laughs with her, it's just adorable!
Look at her hold his hands
and kiss him!!
Thankful for so much love!
Thankful for these little things,
to remind me to be thankful even
during long days and messy floors!
