I have so much to be thankful for every single day, picking a few to reflect on today:

  • The fun my 6 year old daughter and I had doing her 1st Grade Family Turkey project.  The  instructions were to cut out the given turkey, decorate it creatively, and mount it on posterboard.  My daughter chose to make her turkey into a "Rapunzel turkey" like from the movie Tangled.  It turned out ridiculously hilarious - purple sequins and long yarn hair!
  • Matching doll and little girl nightgowns.  Thank you Kohl's for a cheap, sweet, will be worn over and over again blessing and smile for both my 6 year old and me!  May she never outgrow delighting in dressing like her doll!
  • Some weather cool enough to inspire me to get our the "winter blanket" for our bed.
  • And discovering Madeline the puppy is the exact same color as the blanket!
  • She is really not allowed on our bed, but who could resist such a soft, fluffy blanket?  I snapped the picture and then made her get "Off!".

  • My children's schools and teachers!  Because I won't be able to do much once our new daughter comes home, I have been spending a lot of time lately in my kids' classrooms (pre-K, 1st grade and 3rd grade) - going on field trips, reading in the class, assisting with in-class projects, etc, and I am so grateful for the 2 amazing schools my kids attend (the elementary is even a public school) and wonderful teachers they have!  Really, I could not be more pleased!
  • My 4 year old who has said for a while he wants to be a pastor when he grows up (my husband has encouraged/planted ideas), the other day told me, "Now I want to be something like a pastor, you know what it is?"  Me:  "No, what?"  Him:  "A priest!"  It made me laugh so hard!  We are not Catholic and he's never been to a Catholic church, so I have no idea where he got that one!  That little guy makes me laugh every day!


  1. Love the picture of your daughter and her doll! When I was little my mama would always make my favorite doll a dress from the left over material of the dresses she made me...thanks for bringing up that memory!

  2. Loved your list....REALLY loved the turkey, and REALLY REALLY loved your sons thoughts on being a priest, haha...

    Hope all is well!


I'd love to hear what you think!
