Levi received birthday money from his Nana and Papa and we used a portion of it to order something he’s been wanting for a long time: a metal detector.
Week 46 of my 2013 Thankfulness Project
I’m thankful to be celebrating our anniversary. Today is cold and rainy but eight years ago the weather was beautiful and I was absolutely giddy. To say that I hit the jack-pot that day is an understatement. What a tremendous man I married.
I’m thankful for generous kids. Levi and Milo decided they wanted to help the neighbors by raking their leaves. I was surprised to see how much they were able to clear. Our neighbors have a lawn service…we do not. I bit my tongue about that and just cheered them on.
I’m thankful for this fun project Levi received for his birthday from Auntie Corrine and her crew. We’ve been working on it bit by bit this week. It’s almost done.
I’m thankful for sweet one-on-one time this morning with Milo. He put on a backpack and a “frontpack”. Shortly after I snapped this picture we had a dance party. Back/front pack dancing is hilarious.
I’m thankful for a coffee date tonight with my friend, Cyndi. It’s hard to believe but I’ve known her for eighteen years- that’s half of my life!
I’m thankful for date night! Joel and Kelly watched the kids. We were so excited! It was so fun! I think we may need to make sure these happen more regularly!
I’m thankful for this quiet Sunday afternoon. Lucas took the boys to his parent’s house. I spent the whole time cleaning and no children asked me any questions. I’m not sure when a solitary afternoon spent scrubbing became my idea of a wonderful time. It just is now. I’m not going to fight it.
“Captured” by the Digital Age (comprised of four of the six members of the erstwhile David Crowder Band) looks to have been released in August but I am just now finding it and I can’t get enough of this song.
Here’s the completely charming video. Don’t click on it if you are against smiling, goofiness, and/or cute children.
Week 45 of my 2013 Thankfulness Project
I’m thankful for the peak of fall foliage through my kitchen windows.
I’m thankful to be celebrating Levi’s 6th birthday. I’m so blessed to be this kiddo’s mom.
I’m thankful that our travels to Florida went mostly smoothly. We had a delay at our layover but the kids were great.
I’m thankful for silly kids.
I’m thankful for a really fun day at Magic Kingdom.
I’m thankful for Grandpa’s 80th birthday party. There is so much love in this picture!
I’m thankful for my parents and how they value family time.
I followed this recipe and made some syrup from fresh ginger.
It was very tasty in bubbly water but my favorite was adding it to tea. I also had it on my oatmeal. A friend suggested putting it on ice cream- it was delicious!
