Sunday Nov 13

Today is Sunday.  Normally I wake up go to church and then come home, take a nap and then it's off to work.  Today, I don't have to work.  I'm so happy to have this day with my family.  I get to spend the evening with my husband and kids which is very rare. 
Today I'm thankful for lazy Sunday afternoons at home with my family.

Gideon's Bday

Today my sweet baby boy turned 5.  I can't believe how the time has gone by.  We celebrated with our family at chuck e cheese's.  It was just our little family.  It was nice though we played for a long time and had food and presents and cake.  I think he had a good time.  He got an electric drum set, a whole bunch of new board games, a rubix cube and a new scooby doo movie.  It was so much fun watching him open his presents.  Every time he opened a new one he would get so excited even before he knew what it was.  It was fun seeing him open them. I have some pretty good pictures of him.

Giving Thanks

I'm a slacker.  It's so hard to remember to get on here over the weekend.  With work and kids and getting stuff done I find myself away from the computer most of the weekend.  Having left off on the 4th I have 3 days to make up...

Nov. 5  Saturday was a great day.  I was able to have a little alone time at the salon I go to.  I got my nails done and had a hair cut.  It was very relaxing and a great way to rejuvenate.  It's a nice way to recharge the old battery.  So, I'm grateful for alone time to be a girly girl.

Nov. 6  Sunday we had church.  I just received a new calling, which is nursery leader.  I'm trying really hard to have a positive attitude about it.  The kids are great.  There are 7 little ones right now with I think 2 or three coming in the next couple of weeks.  I do like that I can be with Brynwen.  So for now, I'm going to push through and be thankful that I'm needed and that I can help.

Nov. 7  Today I'm grateful for sleep.  I'm thankful that I have a really comfortable bed that I love.

November 1-4

It's that time of year again.  The month of thanks.  I truly am thankful for things year round, but feel especially moved to share the things I'm thankful for during this month.  I know I'm a few days behind, but I will get caught up and then it's a post a day for the whole month.  Here goes...

  1. I'm thankful for my health.  I have had the worst cold for the past 3 weeks.  I'm just now starting to get better and I'm so glad that the human body can heal itself.
  2. I'm thankful that I have a voice.  I lost my voice for 4 days.  I have to say that our home was a little bit quieter.  I could only speak in a whisper which made others stop and listen.  It also had this crazy effect on people.  Whenever I spoke, they felt like they had to speak back to me in a whisper too. 
  3. I'm so thankful for my husband.  Joe is the greatest.  I love him so much.  He works so hard for our family.  He really is a special guy and I don't know what I would do without him.
  4. I'm greatful for learning experiences.  No, I'm not going to elaborate.
There you have it my first four of the month.  Good reading to everyone.  I hope your month of thanks goes well.
