Thankful, I am.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Today the boys and their daddy and I are headed out to visit some family. We'll stuff ourselves til we can't think straight and then have a little more pie. Thanksgiving dinner is my favorite meal and I can't wait. (I'll also force Mike to cook the same meal for Christmas dinner, if you want to know the truth.)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving I thought I'd take a cue from many of you and tell you what I'm thankful for.

I'm thankful for my awesome husband. He works harder than a person should to provide for us and still manages to make us all feel happy and special. I'd move across the country again for him if I had to. (But really, I don't wanna move again. I like it here!)

I'm thankful for my sweet Pirate. He is the sweetest kid there ever was, full of hugs and kisses and cuddles. He crowds me in my chair and when I ask why he Always. Has. To. Sit. By. Me?? He says, "because I love you mommy." Well then, let me just scootch over a bit.

I'm thankful for my crazy Bug. NOTHING about the Pirate prepared us for the whirlwind that is the Bug. He's loud and opinionated and determined. He WILL find a way to get into/onto/ahold of whatever it is you don't want him to have. He's funny and happy and silly though, the way the 1 year olds are.

I'm thankful for my family. I don't see any of them near enough, the Alabama ones or the South Dakota ones. (Yes, I'm thankful for my in-laws, I couldn't have married into a better family.)

I'm thankful for my friends, the ones I can touch (get your mind out of the gutter) and the invisible ones inside my computer. You all rock. This has been a crazy year for us and having the love and support of all of you has really made a difference in my life.

And yeah, there's a lot of material things I'm thankful for too, but none of it really matters when it comes down to it. It's the people and the love and the sharing and the generosity and the compassion. I'm thankful.

  6. We ate and stuffed ourselves silly too and I am STILL eating. I've gained three pounds this week. It all stops tomorrow though. So sad.
