I'm thankful for...

I'm thankful for my family. I am so lucky.

I'm thankful for chocolate... for obvious reasons. I would honestly not survive without it.

I'm thankful for the "terrible two's" that we are experiencing with Quinn. I'm thankful for the things that I'm learning from it. I'm thankful for the great moments I have with her when she's NOT throwing a tantrum, screaming, refusing to sleep, refusing to eat, and kicking her arms and legs on the floor.

I'm thankful for stickers. Without them, Quinn wouldn't make it through church or long afternoons when we stay home all day.

I'm also thankful for books and the hours and HOURS of quality entertainment they provide for Quinn every day.

I'm thankful for my mom. for more reasons that I could list. I love you mom.

I'm thankful that my kids have the most amazing daddy. He is the best. They love him more than ever. I'm thankful that he comes home every day ready and willing to help me with whatever I need. i couldn't ask for more. love you, daddy.

I'm thankful for my sewing machine. I know that sounds silly. But I love to sew, and I feel lucky to have a decent machine that lets me create things. and I'm thankful for a two-year-old who truly loves EVERYTHING I sew. It's cute.

I'm thankful for Rocket. I'm thankful for a diligent husband who has never given up trying to support our family. I'm thankful for Brian and the partnership that has made my husband excited to do his job everyday. blast off.

I'm thankful that Dave is not only a great dad, but a GREAT husband as well. Dave appreciates all I do, and never lets me doubt how much he loves me. He also buys me chocolate and tells me I'm beautiful... which is awesome.

I'm also thankful for this little guy. For the peace and joy and happiness he brings to our home

I'm also thankful for all of you who look at my little blog every day. Thanks for caring what we're up to. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
